Nutcracker Christmas Wrap Up

The girls ballet academy performed the Nutcracker this past Saturday and Sunday. (Both girls were too young to audition this year, but Olivia can try out next year). Anyway, the plan was to go watch the production together as a family, but again that whole lack of income stopped us in our tracks on that. So I did the next best thing, I went to the library and checked out a couple of DVD's of the Nutcracker with Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey Kirkland and the Nutcracker on Ice with Oksana Baiul.

Books we used:

Nutcracker Noel; by Kate McMullan
Noelle of the Nutcracker; by Pamela Jane
The Candymakers Gift; by David & Helen Haidle
Nutcracker Nation; by Jennifer Fisher
The Nutcracker; by Don Daily
Nutcracker, by E.T.A. Hoffmann
The Nutcracker; by George Balanchine's

I also found some wonderful printable mini-books at Christian Preschool Printables to add to our study. We did a candy cane book , symbols of Christmas and a Happy Birhday Jesus booklet. The booklets can be printed in color or black and white, and the links here are for the black and white...I mean really my kids would mutiny if they didn't get to color it themselves!

We're working on regular subjects as well...but nothing noteworthy. Today we'll be making fudge and peanutbutter balls and maybe some cookies.

Starting this evening through Sunday we are SUPPOSED to get a major snow storm. "They" are predicting the worst snowfall in years, upwards of 16 inches. Super excited about that!

We will be doing some school next week as well...maybe, who knows?!

To see how everyone else's week went, head over to the Weekly Wrap Up!
