December 9th - 13th


'Tis the Season!  

This week the kindergarten class continues to work on the Christmas show.  We have been singing the songs and learning our places on stage.  However, we have made time to understand the true meaning of Christmas!  We read the story, The Best Thing About Christmas by Christine Harder Tangvald.  It's a story about all of the wonderful things that go along with Christmas, like the decorations and colors of Christmas, smells like turkey in the oven and cookies baking at Grandmom's house, and the sounds of Christmas like bells and carols!  These are all great things about Christmas, but what's the best thing?  Jesus!  The day we celebrate Jesus' birthday!  Our class did our own journal entry of what we think the best thing about Christmas is.  Yes, it's Jesus but check out some of our other ideas!
