The month leading up to the celebration of Jesus’ birth is a GREAT time to be in Kindergarten! For Advent we read a Bible story and colored an ornament every day from the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. Each old testament story pointed forward to Jesus! We also did many nativity crafts and activities.
The Christmas Program was a great success, and all the students and Mrs. Sprengeler, Mrs. Yox and Mrs. Holbrook put in a LOT of work to make that happen. If you haven’t watched it yet, it is available on the school’s Facebook page and YouTube. To watch click HERE
Literacy Rotations are becoming a well-oiled machine! The kids are doing so well at working independently and some amazing learning and growth is happening in the small group instruction time. We are working hard on phonics and will soon have learned every letter’s sound. A journal entry about being a wise man is posted in the Kindergarten hallway: check it out!
In Math we just completed a unit on measurement, covering length, weight and capacity. In STEM we built towers out of peppermint candies and did an experiment to see what would happen if you soak candy canes in different liquids. Our visitor from the Farm Bureau, Mrs. H., taught us about weather.
Even though many things are different this year, from the Christmas Program to family gatherings, the most important part of Christmas--celebrating the birth of our Savior--hasn’t changed. Merry Christmas!
