As we study and prepare for the holidays, the children learned about how poinsettias grow. Many of the children thought the red leaves were the flowers, but actually the flowers are the small yellow buds in the center. The red and green are both leaves! 

The children practiced their fine motor skills as they made their holiday stockings! Hole punching is a difficult skill for the children because they have to really squeeze their hand muscles to get the hole puncher to close. Over time, the children's hand muscles get stronger and stronger!
