Mrs Jennison’s Pre-K4 class,

The Advent Season has begun. We are excited as we prepare for Jesus birth.

We are reading many Christmas stories throughout this season. Feel free to send in a special Christmas book with your child to share with our class.

We are starting letter L. The kids will be making a very colorful “Lollipop”.

In Art class, the kids made a Christmas tree ornament. It will get sent home this week, in time to decorate your tree.

In music class, the kids practiced “Away In a Manger”. It will be one of the songs they will sing at our Christmas program on the 15th.

In Religion we talked about Mary, Jesus mom, and how she was preparing for his birth.

Library/story time, the kids read ” The Gingerbread Baby”.

In PE class the kids played “Freeze Tag”.

In Language Arts , we started our next unit, The Elves and the Shoemaker. The kids enjoyed making their own books to take home and read.

Each day a student is the “Special Helper of the day”. Please ask your child about this very important job!
