This is one of the stories about Mr. Shipman’s Kindergarten class, specifically December holidays. You can tell that Mr. Shipman has a love of teaching by the way the students react to his class and the effort he puts into planning. I like how he included all the holidays in December for all student. You can tell the impact of a good teacher by the way the children get excited when they remember things from a specific teacher’s class. A cute story for kids.
