Cookies with Santa
Erin Zacherl's first graders and Vicky Campbell's kindergarten students enjoyed conversing with Santa during a "Cookies with Santa" videoconference offered by Magpi. Keystone Elementary connected virtually with several other schools and Santa, and a teacher from a school for the deaf even taught us all how to sign "Merry Christmas!"
Each school prepared cookies prior to the videoconference, showed them to Santa, and explained how they made them. Mrs. Zacherl's students made delicious concoctions of vanilla wafers, peanut butter, white chocolate, and chocolate chips to share with their kindergarten buddies. Yum!
Santa read "The Night before Christmas" and answered questions posed by students from each participating school. Our kiddos were truly captivated for the entire 45 minutes!
