Excitement about Christmas is starting to build in our classroom, and we decided to put some Christmas Countdowns together! We read a beautiful story called: Counting to Christmas by Nancy Tafuri and talked about the ways we prepare for the holiday season. Then we each drew our own Santas and added 24 number stories that we'll be solving as we count our way to Christmas.
We each chose our own set of "just right" number stories, and we'll be adding a cotton ball each day to the one that is equal to the date. We'll have to be great detectives and problem solvers!
What are you doing to Count to Christmas?
