Merry Christmas to All!

What a fun week we had getting ready for Christmas!  We read lots of wonderful Christmas stories and did some Christmas math!  Kids love when math is fun!  We used cut-out Christmas lights to work on counting as well as number recognition.

We also used our Christmas lights to work on patterns.  I love when kids grasp this concept!

The 3-year-olds enjoyed working together to sort the Christmas lights by color.  Sorting different objects and organizing them helps children classify objects and prepares them for further math concepts.
 The Pre-K kids got to make Christmas cards this week.  This was a great opportunity for them to work on their printing skills.  Many of them were ready to copy words and write them on their card for Santa or someone special they love.  They also traced Christmas shapes and colored them to make them more interesting.  Giving kids the opportunity to practice and develop their writing skills is very important as they get ready for kindergarten.

We were so happy to finally have Santa come to the preschool this week!!  What a treat!  The kids were excited to sing “Jingle Bells” for Santa too!



We hope you all have a beautiful Christmas and a happy new year full of blessings and peace!
