What's Going On In Class:

We are starting outside as of Tuesday.

Please send a jacket with your child. The mornings can be very cold. If your child does not want to wear a jacket just leave it in their cubby if they change their mind.


 The children have been practicing cutting at the ribbon cutting table. In dress up we have introduced and added the costumes from the nativity. In blocks we have added bird houses and wood plank to build with.


During family we are working on counting how many people at school and our Christmas songs.


During snack time we made pumpkin pie.


Thank you to Rachel, Joshua's mom, for making play dough!


This month for All School Chapel we will bring in a new unwrapped toy for the toy drive.


For the next three weeks we will be getting ready for Christmas and Jesus Birthday celebration. We will make cards, ornaments, gifts and learn new songs.
