Before school let our for Christmas Break, the 4th and 5th graders enjoyed a Christmas party together. We did a secret Santa gift exchange. The hot items? Erasable pens and mini playground balls. We also ate treats together and played musical chairs to Christmas songs. Many kids had never played this game before and it was hilarious to watch them trying to stay close to the chairs in case the music stopped.
