Pre-K teacher Sondra Pratt said Common Core standards were reached when students created triangle-shaped reindeer and Christmas tree ornaments out of Popsicle sticks salt dough ornaments after they measured ingredients, and patterns by making red and white beaded candy cane decorations.
Other learning targets included fine motor skills as they put the holiday crafts together.
Together, with their relatives, the young students enjoyed refreshments and wrote letters to Santa Claus.
