The December Newsletter was recently published. A full PDF version of the newsletter is available below. This month, we will focus on Enriched Kindergarten and Young Nursery.
Young Nursery- Miss Jane and Miss Gail
All aboard! We will start the month talking about trains (toy trains, freight trains, passenger trains, etc.). There will be lots of adventures as we play with trains. We will be looking for things of which there are 4 along with things in the shape of a star or the color yellow. We will read Jaguar’s Jungleberry Jamboree as we introduce the letter “J.” Then we are off to the bakery as we learn about bakers and the types of food the make. The children will be making some dough for play activities. We will read Kangaroo Kazoo as we introduce the letter “K.” Have you noticed all of the lights and different kinds of decorations? Christmas is quickly approaching. The excitement is mounting. We will be talking about some of the decorations we see and be making some of our decorations for the holiday season as well as practice using our lacing skills. We’ll also enjoy The Lamb Who Loved to Laugh as we introduce the letter “L.” Then we will close the month focusing on the true meaning of Christmas. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!!
Enriched Kindergarten- Mr. Jeff, Miss Stephanie, and Miss LoisWe’ve spent November learning about our neighbor states- where they are located on the map, their capital and nickname; order they joined the Union, and many more interesting facts. We also spent some time learning about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving feast and talking about what we are thankful for. December will bring us a very busy holiday season. We will learn about Hanukkah and “light” a Menorah each day. We will make dreidels and learn how to play. Next we travel to Sweden to celebrate St. Lucia’s Day. Finally we travel to Finland, Italy, Belgium, Australia, Mexico, and back to the USA to learn about Christmas around the world. We will end our holiday learning about Kwanzaa. Happy Hanukkah! Buon Natale! Happy Kwanzaa! Merry Christmas!
