A Message From Mrs. Gilbert & Mrs. Paterson
We are busy preparing for our Christmas program on Thursday, December 13th and hope everyone can attend! This week in our social/emotional curriculum, we are learning that we feel feelings in our bodies. We are also learning about the feeling of “worry”. We talked about what to do if you feel worried and that talking to a grown-up can help.
Our Terrific 3’s discussed the Letter J for Jesus, Jesus is born, and Christmas fun! We are working hard learning the songs for our Christmas program, practicing in the sanctuary each class day, and working on some very special Christmas crafts. Some of the crafts include beautiful angels made out of our handprints, nativity scenes, and sorting different sized triangles to make a Christmas tree. We are also learning the true meaning of Christmas! We spoke about the Angel Gabriel telling Mary she was going to have a baby.
Our Fantastic 4’s had a great week working on Christmas crafts, Christmas songs for our program, our Savior, Jesus, is coming, and Letter J for Jesus! We are working on sorting rectangles big to small in order to make a Christmas tree, we are making homemade Christmas cards, and we worked on letter matching. We are practicing our Christmas songs and motions each class day in the sanctuary, and continue to go to Chapel with our Chapel Buddies each Wednesday. Our bible story this week discussed that God sent an angle to Mary announcing that she would have a baby. This baby would be named Jesus, and He would be the Savior of all!
The Fabulous 5’s had a busy week. We discussed the number 6, patterns, made a “stained glass” nativity scene, and learned about the Advent Wreath. We are also practicing our Christmas songs each day in the sanctuary in preparation for our Christmas program. We are also working on several very special Christmas crafts.
