Santa has arrived!!
Well, in craft form anyways.
Our Holiday Program is in full swing for
my grade-school kiddos.
Excitement fills the classroom…
as many know it is ONLY a short time before
Santa arrives to fulfill their Christmas wishes.
Kiddos were very eager to dive right into
the art project, crafting a Santa.
Many giggles surrounded the art table…
Once kiddos started gluing down their handprints
for Santa’s beard!
What a magical time.
After writing/structuring a curriculum
that implements a “theme” like this one.
I go back and organizing (in thoughts)
“how” this will be orchestrated in the classroom.
In my mind…
I might be thinking, “this is an amazing program!”
Yet, it MUST contain a continuous flow of activities
with open ended projects, and minimal prep/cleanup.
A lot of “behind the scenes” takes place
before the program is finalized.
There are some projects/activities that just don’t make it. Budget plays a HUGE factor in this decision.
These are just a few, to give you a general idea.
At the end of the day…
A “successful” program is the greatest reward!!
