Mele Kalikimaka!

Aloha!  It's 40 degrees in sunny North Carolina; how's the weather where you are? We had our first big frost of the season yesterday with my car completely covered in an impenetrable layer of ice. (But no snow; it's always winter but never snow!)  So what did we talk about with the kids? The beach, of course!  One of our teacher standards for teacher licensure includes global awareness, or the awareness that life exists outside of our little school bubble. So while the kids were bundling up in hats, gloves, and coats one by one, I showed them all pictures of Santa surfing, a snowman made of sand (which one of the kids dubbed "sandman") and palm trees. I pulled out the laptop and showed them Google maps so we could see where Hawaii is. For a little while, at least, we could dream before we braved the cold.

Merry Christmas!
