Full Day Preschool-December 10, 2021

Looking Back…
*It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Preschool!  Our Advent wreaths have two candles lit!  Our countdown chains are hanging!  We are working hard on our surprises for our families!  Sorry!  We can’t tell you about them!   Our Nativity Scene is all set up and we even did our Christmas shopping at the Holiday Treasures Shop this week.  Thank you to Mrs. McKeehan!
*We celebrated Grinch Day and made our own Grinches.  We talked all about how the Grinch can be kind to all of the Whos in Whoville and why his heart grew three sizes.  Being kind has been our focus this month.
*Our new calendar pattern is gift, candle, candle or ABB and we are busy counting each morning with the Singing Walrus 🙂
*Kk was our letter and we made kids kicking soccer balls and painted koalas.
*We visited the Church each day and practiced our songs.  Joy to the World is our favorite!
*We welcomed our new friend, Joey!  Jj is his letter.  We are so happy he is here 🙂
*Our Cool Cat of the Week, Henry, shared an awesome book about the Superheroes and we figured out all their letters.  Bb is for Batman and Hh is for Hulk.  Great job, Henry!
