Holiday Fun at School

The holidays have been in full swing here at the Little Flower school, with decorations, greeting card making, and even Christmas cookies.
The big Christmas tree, covered in tons of ornaments and tinsel, is the first thing to greet all the kids when they walk into the classroom.

This little electronic toy sings Christmas carols, and the kids have a healthy obsession with this thing. Any time it's on, everyone's gathered around it singing and dancing along.

The little students also had fun getting creative and making Christmas cards. They're real pros, aren't they? Look at that workmanship!

They even had the chance to bake gingerbread cookies! Maria, our Curriculum Director and a great teacher, prepared the dough beforehand and the kids loved rolling it out and cutting out gingerbread men and Christmas tree shapes.

Christmas isn't often celebrated in China, and Chinese New Year is definitely the biggest holiday of the year, but nevertheless, everyone's loved learning about and sharing these Christmas traditions in our classroom.
