Our Pajama Day New Year’s Party was outrageous and so much fun! We had an indoor snowball throw competition, listened to Auld Lang Syne, talked about the countdown celebrations around the world on New Year’s Eve, and played a riveting Penguin Match Game for letter P and for winter, earning a treat bag of surprises! Then we heard the story The Night Before New Year’s Eve, and enjoyed feasting on pancakes with syrup! Then we sipped cocoa with marshmallows and munched on popcorn while watching The Polar Express.

Goodbye 2022

Hello 2023!

Have a SAFE and HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!


Merry Christmas from KidsFirst LearningCenter ! 🎄🎅🎁♥️🥰

We had a magical celebration. First, we colored our Holiday CRAFT BAG, and then we heard the LITTLE CHRISTMAS ELF story and sang the Winnie the Pooh version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. We added our Santa hats to sing Raffi’s It Must Be Santa, which then motivated us to put on our bell adorned reindeer antlers and perform Jim Reeves Jingle Bells. And then we played games! We played THE PIZZA WALK (earning a Present & Chocolate Santa) while dancing to Run, Run Rudolph, and then we played THE HOLIDAY MEMORY GAME (earning a prize) and then THE BEAN BAG TOSS HOPSCOTCH (earning a treat bag). Then we had fun getting involved in a CHRISTMAS COOKIE DECORATING contest (winning treat cups). Then it was time for our HI PIZZA MAN story to prepare us for our surprise delivery person! This year it was a REINDEER! And then on to our huge feast.

Our bellies were more than satisfied. To wind down the day’s festivities we watched “The Flight Before Christmas” opened our stockings that Santa filled last night and then heard the adorable story SIX SNOWY SHEEP, and then finally took a long hard winters nap. As the big man in the red suit always says, “Merry Christmas to all…and to all a good night.”

P.S. A special thank you to a few parents who made this the BEST CHRISTMAS PARTY EVER! Thank you to Nerissa & Aaron who helped make this year extra special by contributing treat bags for every student. And an enormous thank you to Nerissa & Aaron, Maddie Scalvini & Ethan, Kathryn Buckles Dewey & Jake, and Erin & Travis for surprising me with fancy, generous and thoughtful gifts. I am overwhelmed with appreciation and so grateful to everyone.
