Week of December 2-6

The Christmas season is upon us! We are lucky to be learning about the letter Ll in Junior Kindergarten. We began our week by creating Christmas lights on our Ll lettercard. We generated as many Ll words as we could think of and drew pictures of our favorite Ll words after Maggie visited! We also played with legos, light brights and Lincoln logs!

We practiced writing the numbers 3-5 this week! We have practiced our handwriting on magic slates, whiteboards, and on doodle boards. We would encourage you to continue practicing writing numbers at home as well!

We have begun our Christmas unit with a study of the Nativity. We have been reading The Story of Christmas by Linda Jennings and have been learning about Gabriel who came to visit Mary with the special message that she was to be the mother of God’s son, Jesus. We continued to learn about the special Jerusalem donkey that carried Mary to Bethlehem with Joseph and that they were grateful for the stable in which they stayed to give birth to baby Jesus. We have been working on a special nativity art project all week.
