New Year

Today, I talked to the children about time.  I read a great book called A Second is A Hiccup.  I told the class how special it was that we got to be together on the LAST day of December, and on the LAST day of the YEAR!  We made noisemakers out of small paper plates and popcorn kernels for Art.  (The children colored the plates with markers.)  We also practiced counting backwards, then shouting "HAPPY NEW YEAR"!  It was a fun day.  The children seemed to sort of understand that calendars relate to time as well as clocks, watches, the sun, the moon, and even hourglasses. Time is pretty amazing.  Time flies when you are having fun! Have fun tonight.  Be safe and be well.  Happy New Year to you and yours!
