We read the cute rhyming letter from Santa together. It explained that Rudolph was worried that they might not find everyone's home on Christmas Eve, so he devised a plan. By sending our class the magical ingredients, they would be able to make a special batch of reindeer food that will lead Santa's sleigh straight to their house.

Don't they all look so cute in their pajamas? I set up the train tracks leading into our room where the big train was set up! It took me foooooorever to get that train finished. I had to work a little Christmas magic just to get it to stand up.

After the movie was over, there was a knock on our door. A package had been delivered from the North Pole to our class! It was from Santa himself and it was still ice cold from the snow. (I kept the box in the freezer overnight to be sure it would be extra icy! Even the bells were frigid when we opened it) The kids ripped open the package and found the first gift of Christmas for them - magical bells! I found the adorable little boxes at Walmart for only $2 for 6. I added some polyfill for the snow and attached a sweet poem to remind kids what the bell represents. If you would like to use the poem with your kids next year, you can get a copy by clicking the picture below while it is on sale!
The kids left the room absolutely ecstatic. They had soooo much fun and all the hard work was worth it. I could never get tired of the Polar Express.
And that was it - Christmas Break time - yay!!
This was probably the longest post ever, but I have more time on my hands then usual, being that it's Christmas break and all!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! I HOPE YOU HAVE A LOVE AND JOY FILLED HOLIDAY WITH THOSE CLOSE TO YOU! AND MAY RUDOLPH & THE OTHER REINDEER VISIT YOUR HOME TONIGHT :)
