December Newsletter 2018-2019
Tis the season of giving! The excitement is in the air and in the classroom as we wait for Baby Jesus and Christmas Day. We will be learning about the true meaning of Christmas and the Nativity. Christmas is a season of giving and we will be teaching the children about opening up their hearts to others who are less fortunate than they are. In years past we have collected mittens and gloves for a local charity. We are asking for donations of new gloves…mittens…hats and scarves for adults or children. We will hang them on our classroom Christmas tree until distributed to those in need. Please bring them in by Tuesday December 13th.
We will be working like little elves in the next few weeks before Christmas. Your children made count up to Christmas calendars that will be hanging in the hall. They learned to form all the numbers from 1-25. They should all be congratulated for this challenging task. Please remind them to move their angel up the ladder each day. Also please have them put a candle on their advent wreath each Sunday until Christmas. Your homes will be adorned with elves…angels…stockings and more as we move closer to Christmas.
Our letters this month are “Ii”, and Jj”. Our numbers are 3 and 4.
Our Christmas celebration party will take place on Friday December 21st. You are welcome to join us in the classroom. Mrs.Tomaino has snack that week and has graciously offered to make baby Jesus a cake for his birthday. I would like to thank you for sharing each of your children with me. They are truly God’s most special gifts. Have a blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year! See you Wednesday January 2nd!
