December News!
Tentative Happenings in our Class

Week of November 28 - December 2
The holiday season is upon us.  This week we will be discussing the season of Advent, and preparing ourselves for the wonderful celebration of Jesus’ Birthday – Christmas.  Throughout the month of December, we will be lighting a candle on our Advent wreath and learning a new prayer (song) each week.  The first week of Advent is the week of HOPE.  Our letter for this week is the letter “H”.

Week of December 5 - 9
This week  we will be celebrating the Feast Day of Saint Nicholas, which is December 6th.  We will be learning about this very special Saint and enjoying an extra special surprise. Glitter, glitter everywhere!! We will be working on our festive and glittery art projects, and singing all of our favorite Christmas songs. The second week of Advent is the week of PEACE.  Our letter for this week is the letter “I”.

Week  of December 12 - 16
This is our Gingerbread week. We will be reading Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett, and making our own gingerbread houses at art time. JOY will fill the air on this third week of Advent.     We will continue to discuss the true meaning of Christmas as we prepare ourselves for Jesus’ Birthday..
Our letter for this week is the letter “J”.  On Friday, we will have “Sugar Cookie Day”.  We will be decorating sugar cookies for our snack.

Week of December 19 – 21
I am sure there will be a lot of excitement in the air this week. 

 We have some extra festive days planned.  On Monday, we will have a hot cocoa and Christmas movie day.  Wednesday will be our last day before Christmas. We will be making “jingle bell” necklaces, and  we will have a special birthday cake and celebration for Baby Jesus.  We will not be introducing a new letter this  week.  The fourth week of Advent is the week of LOVE.  We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
