{25 Days of Christmas: Day 21}

Today's book was One Shining Star: A Christmas Countdown Book by Anne Vitur Kennedy.

Our activity was to cut out a big yellow star and put star stickers all over it. After it was done we put it on top of Christopher's small tree we got him last year during Christmas clearance.

The other side was much more loaded down with stickers. Once Christopher gets a hold of "stickies" he never wants to stop!

We also talked about all different shapes and read the shape book that I made for my class while teaching. It basically just has lots of different shapes (even parallelograms!) in different colors. For some reason he loves looking through that book and can identify a star, heart, circle, triangle, oval, diamond and square. He also says, "gon," but uses that for the pentagon, hexagon, etc. What can I say the boy loves shapes!

Another fun activity, which we did not do, would be to take a simple shape scavenger hunt around your house and identify what the shape of certain items are!

In case you are just joining us, here is the post with all the Christmas books.
