Thinking about Christmas!

We have been using the Thinking Hats to talk about Christmas and what it means to us! Here are some of our ideas.

First of all what is good about Christmas?

You get lots of presents. Jack
I like all the food we eat. Paolo
We get to spend time with our family. Salani

Next we used the black hat to think about the not so good parts of Christmas - or why some people might not look forward to Christmas.

Some people might not be able to afford all the food and presents. Josiah
I don't like helping. Darrin
You don't always get all the presents you want. Paolo
You might not get yummy food. Charlie
Sometimes you eat too much and get a sore tummy.
You have to clean up the house. Grace

Then we used the green thinking hat to think of what we could to do to help someone on Christmas day or round Christmas time. Mum doing the baking. Kodie and Antonia Mum with the food. Salani Nana cook nice stuff. Campbell
...look after my cousin Willie while the parents set the table. Cameron Dad make up the Christmas tree. Josiah Dad wrap up the pressies. Paolo Dad make monkey bars. Jack Dad fix up cars in the garage. Callum

These are the words that tell you how we FEEL about Christmas...

love, excited, yummo, nice, great, exciting, good, hiamo, wana, relaxed, thankful, happy and delighted!

What do you think about Christmas???
