Children's House News

Northland Pines Montessori Learning Center

Dec. 14-18, Highlights of the week...

We enjoyed checking out where Maria ended up each day.

We learned about Los Pasados (Mexico) we grated special chocolate to make homemade hot chocolate to enjoy with the reindeer cookies we made. (Hot chocolate and cookies are part of the tradition in Mexico). We read The Legend of the Poinsettia and made a poinsettia.

We learned about Christmas in Italy and the presepio (their nativity scene).

We compared that to the American Nativity scene.

We built gingerbread houses that we will decorate next week.

Ask your child about Judy, Jimmy and the Cinnamon Bear, we are hoping they get their silver star back soon.
