In December we will discuss Advent and the story of Jesus’ birth. We will talk about what a special holiday Christmas is and how this is the season of love and for giving. The children love to sing and they will learn some Christmas finger plays and Christmas Carols. We will read many Christmas books as well.
Our home center has become a store. There will be a lot of shopping and wrapping going on every day. The class will also have a Christmas tree that the children can take turns decorating every day along with a stable and manger with baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in the religion center. The letters C and J are introduced in December and we will review all the upper and lower case letters that have been introduced so far. We will incorporate Christmas into all of our language arts and math activities. We are also working in our Handwriting Without Tears workbooks to practice writing the numbers 1-10.
Our Christmas party is Monday, December 18th right after our enrichment at 11:55. All parents are welcome to attend. Please check in at the office for a name tag before coming to the classroom. We will also have a Pajama Day on Friday, December 15th. The children may wear their pajamas to school. We will have a movie with popcorn and juice during nap time. The children need to wear their tennis shoes with their pajamas in order to play on the playground.
Thank you for sharing your precious child with us this year. They are such special gifts from God. It is so much fun to share in your child’s excitement and anticipation during this time of year
