A big part of our curriculum this December is studying different holidays. To kick off the season we learned about St. Nicholas Day. St. Nicholas is celebrated in Europe, where he leaves special treats in your shoes on the night of December 5th. Visit the St. Nicholas Center here for lots of information on St. Nicholas. Click here for the KidzWorld site on St. Nicholas Day--there are other short videos there about other holidays in December.
We made paper shoes today, just in case St. Nicholas finds his way to our school tonight!
We'll see what's in our shoes on Monday morning!
