Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man’s hat


Christmas is coming and everyone is in the spirit.  Teachers have been crafting up their classrooms and helping the kids make gifts for their parents.  We’ve been having a blast in 4th grade.  Ronald has been in the best mood lately, we’ve been playing word games and dancing and even finishing up chapters, we’re on top of it.  3rd is great too, we’ve been having big discussions about “Christmas” in different countries and different cultures and traditions.  It is incredible how fast they pick up new things in English.

The teachers have been practicing villancicos during lunchtime so I joined them (even though we aren’t supposed to let the kids know we speak Spanish).  But I figure if the kids have to learn songs in English than it should be easy enough to explain to them that it’s the same thing just reversed.

Anyway, the teachers are ok with it and we will perform for the school at the Christmas Spectacular.  It’s a bit unorganized but we’ll see how it goes.
