WEEKLY UPDATE: DECEMBER 7 – 11 and 14 – 18, 2020

THEMES: POLAR EXPRESS and A SEASON OF FUN

There is excitement in the air and in the classroom as the children eagerly anticipate the upcoming holidays. During these two weeks many holiday learning experiences are planned. Circle time activities and discussions will focus on our families’ customs and holiday traditions. Center time activities will include creating decorations for home, reading holiday books, painting with pine boughs at the easel, playing the Dreidel game and reading a holiday issue of My Big World magazine.

At music time we will sing Jingle Bells, Rudolph, the Dreidel song and other popular songs of the season. Also, all the children will be busy working on a special gift for their families.

The letter of the week activities are K is for kite and L is for lights.

December 7-11 is a sharing week…the children are asked to bring in a holiday treasure on their scheduled sharing day.

A favorite Santa song: (Tune of Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes)
