We've had two mystery readers helping us get into the Christmas spirit this year. First, our mystery reader taught us all about a Swedish Christmas. He brought in traditional decorations and a St. Lucia crown. He also shared special Swedish soda that is only sold in Advent and Lent and Swedish Christmas cookies. The students loved experiencing a Swedish Christmas, especially the sweet soda! Our next reader read "A Wish to be a Christmas Tree" by Colleen Monroe, a charming book about a tree that dreams of being a Christmas tree but keeps getting passed up. In the end, his forest friends surprise him by turning him into a Christmas tree. Our reader then shared Christmas tree cakes with the students. Both readers really helped us get into the Christmas spirit!
Remember, our Christmas party is Friday, December 20th. If you would like to provide something for the party, please email me and I'll let you know what we need.
