Each year in November Mrs. Schalin organizes a Grandparent's Day when all of the kids' grandparents are invited to spend the morning in class with their grandchild. I went three years ago with Kenzie and again today with Sydney. We did crafts, had snacks, and listened to a mini-concert by the kids. It was a lovely, fun, one-on-one time with the grandkids.
We shared snacks at recess time.
We traced our hands and cut out the shapes and decorated them with glitter glue for classroom Christmas decorations.
We made a beautiful wreath which will be used to decorate the gymnasium for the school's Christmas program.
And we listened to original, fun songs by the entire class. I videoed a couple of the songs and tried to put one here but it didn't come across very well. It was a lovely song about how everyone needs a minimum, not a maximum, of four hugs a day.
I hope you all get your four hugs, and have a fun time with your children and/or grandchildren now that the holidays are just about upon us.
