WEEKLY UPDATE: DECEMBER 9TH – 13TH and 16TH – 20TH, 2019

THEME: HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD

There is excitement in the air and in the classroom as the children eagerly anticipate the upcoming holidays.
There are many holiday learning experiences planned for these two weeks. We will explore our families’ customs and holiday traditions and then discover holiday traditions from Mexico, France, Germany, Sweden and more! Center time activities will include creating holiday crafts from different countries, listening to favorite holiday books at the listening center, using scented play dough with holiday cookie cutters, playing the Dreidel game and singing many popular carols which we will also sing at the party on 12/20.
Also, all the children will be busy working on a special gift for their families.
The letter of the week activities are L is for lights and M is for Menorah.

December 9-13 is a sharing week…the children are asked to bring in a holiday treasure on their scheduled sharing day.

A Santa song we will sing at the party. (Tune of Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes)
Hat, whiskers, belt and boots, belt and boots.
Hat, whiskers, belt and boots, belt and boots.
