Our Holiday Fun began on December 16 with our angelic performance of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing". We were in line getting ready to sing for our parents, who were patiently waiting in a very crowded auditorium. It was so crowded that our teacher did not get to take the group picture she wanted. Our fun continued the next day with a classroom visit from Santa. We sang a song with him then he gave each one of us a candy cane. Santa was on a very tight schedule and we couldn't take individual photos with him; we took a group photo instead. Afterwards, we went to a dance party in the auditorium. Despite his busy schedule, Santa stopped by to dance with us for a short while. When our dance time was up, we went outside to have some hot cocoa and graham crakers. After our snack, we went back to our classroom and passed out treats to our friends. We had a lot of fun and thank you PTA for your hard work!

Today, we went to the computer lab. We learned how to get into ST Math from the Mind Research Institute. We sit at the same computer each time we go to the lab.
We learned how to log in using our password. We have to memorize 16 different pictures, letters, and numbers.
We use the mouse to help Jiji cross a path. We solve different math activities. These activities help us do our math in our classroom.
There are a lot of levels. We need to complete all of them by the end of the school year.
