I can hardly believe there are only 10 days of school left before Christmas Break! This week we began preparing our classroom for Christmas by hanging and making decorations. We talked about how it’s important to not just prepare our school or home but to also prepare our hearts for Jesus. We lit the first candle of the Advent wreath, the Candle of Hope. Can you feel the anticipation in the air? We are a people of hope waiting for our Savior to come. The kindergarteners enter into the Christmas story eagerly, I hope that you can let their enthusiasm and expectation rub off on you this season.
A big thanks to Lily’s mom for setting up a Christmas Party sign up for our class. If you’d like to check it out you can go here. If you sign up for a center and need some ideas about what to do, just let me know. We look forward to celebrating Christ’s birth with you on the Friday before our Break.
A few important dates coming up:
~Friday, December 20 – Christmas Party 1:30-3:00
~December 23 – January 3 – No School, Christmas Break
This week our sight words were “conmigo” and “vente” and our syllables were “la, le, li, lo, lu.” We have done an awesome job polishing up our writing to add details, leave spaces between words, use our word wall and more. Sometimes you may think that our kindergarten writing doesn’t look like anything but what we are learning is very impressive! We know how to express our ideas with pictures and some letters from the sounds we hear. This is great work!
In Math we have been looking at teen numbers. We are working on writing them and showing them using 5 or 10 groups. We have also been looking at shapes and how we can organize them and use multiple shapes to make new shapes.
This week we continued to hear about the Israelites during the time of the judges. We learned about Samson and began to hear how God worked in Ruth’s life.
***If you still have the Christmas tree poster at home please send it in. We are hanging them in the hallway and they look beautiful!
