What a busy month December has been as we prepared for Jesus' birth! The children worked very hard to continue practicing skills and gave an excellent Christmas Concert for their families! We are very proud of them! Of course, the highlight of their day was our special guest after the concert, Santa Claus!
The main focus of our Religion lessons has been Advent and Christmas. We reviewed our daily Kindness Calendar and learned more ways to share God's love with others. We celebrate Jesus' birthday with fun activities, including our Christmas Concert, crafts a party, and helping our Scout Elf, Jingles, learn more about God's love. The children were so sweet singing "Happy Birthday" to Baby Jesus before we had our party!
The Terrific Threes also completed the color brown with a fun Gingerbread Theme. They used glitter glue to decorate gingerbread pals, sequenced a gingerbread story, and made "gingerbread cookies" with model magic. We continued to practice identifying our names, recognizing colors and shapes, and gaining social skills.
The Fantastic Fours also completed the letters K and L. They made a string of lights that spelled their names, created a patterned candy cane with a title "J is for Jesus," and played games to review the alphabet and counting skills. "Christmas Stew" was a favorite!
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year!
