Pre-Kindergarten boys performed their annual Jingle and Mingle program on Friday, December 8.

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.

“I” week was packed with interesting ideas! We thought of things that begin with Ii and learned Isabella Inchworm’s song. The boys are practicing sorting in new ways, working together to accomplish a task, giving information from graphs, and working on fine motor skills. We are practicing our counting, and this week we focused on recognizing and forming the numeral 3.

The boys also got to visit our “ice cream shop” on Friday, and they were asked to choose from 3 yummy flavors! We are looking forward to our Thanksgiving Holiday. We have been reading some fun books and learning more about this holiday. We hope you are enjoying the Thanksgiving artwork from your son.  

We are having fun finding and looking at real leaves outside! We are amazed and truly thankful for the divine beauty God has created for us to enjoy. Have a great weekend!

We had fun working with shapes, colors, numbers and letters this week! Sorting shapes is fun, and a little tricky, but we love being able to spot these figures within our classroom and around our school!

It has been great fun playing in the fall leaves at recess, and we love spotting all the many signs of this beautiful season. See if your son can share with you a few symbols of autumn! We have also begun our study on Thanksgiving and have talked about what it means to be thankful. We have brainstormed things we are thankful for and are looking forward to spending time with our sixth grade buddies next week to give to others who are not as fortunate.

With the arrival of the beautiful weather, come layers of clothing! We would like to remind you to put names in all of the jackets, sweatshirts, and vests that you send with your son. Much of the outerwear looks alike, and we want to be sure to keep up with them.

We hope you have a terrific weekend!
