We had a kingly time at school this week and have enjoyed learning more about the Christmas story. We are working on several special ornaments that will be something to treasure!

We have reviewed our numbers and learned how to build the letter K. It has been fun singing about Katy the kangaroo, unlocking locks with special keys, and reading about the three kings that traveled to see baby Jesus.

Singing beautiful Christmas songs at our Jingle & Mingle event was the highlight of our week! Everyone had a joyful time visiting with loved ones and enjoying a Christmas snack to celebrate the season.

We hope you have a great weekend.

In learning our new letter “J”, we talked about Jesus, joy, jellybeans, juice, jellyfish and jam. We matched jewels, sang about Jungle Jim, and learned that if we turn a candy cane upside down, it looks like the letter J too! We continue to practice forming our numbers, counting, and graphing. The boys have also been learning more about the birth of Jesus and why we celebrate Christmas. There are many symbols all around that remind us of Christmas! See if your son can tell you why a candy cane is red and white. The boys are busy creating ornaments and learning beautiful Christmas songs that you will soon get to enjoy! Have a great weekend.

The boys spent this short week enjoying activities centered around Thanksgiving.  Our food drive was a big success! This month reminds us of all that we have to be thankful for. We are so thankful for these precious boys that we are privileged to teach this year. We wish you all a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
