Christmas Crazies

This was my first year teaching during Christmas time. It was nice that my school allows us to celebrate Christmas, they even host a Christmas Market. Although, the week before break was absolutely crazy. Our school had a performance on Wednesday night, so Monday through Wednesday mornings were spent at a theater nearby for rehearsals. Then, our class would return to school to 'learn'. On top of that, Saint Nicholas came to our classroom bringing massive chocolates for each child.... at 9:30 in the morning. St. Nick obviously isn't a teacher. Here's a peek at the days leading up to Christmas break... 
 Watercolor painting of The Nutcracker (themed with the school play) 

 St. Nicholas and his Zwarte Piet (or Black Pete Elf) very controversial 
right now in Belgium. 

 Ornaments for the tree 
 The parents in my class had a surprise party for me when we returned from the Theater. 
It was so thoughtful, gifts, lunch, and Christmas songs. 
 Pretty flowers and a special cake! 

Love when the Mom's take over for story time! 

But we all survived! And now we have a nice break to regroup. 
Enjoy your holidays x
