Little Lambs

Hello and happy Friday!

What a short but busy month it’s been in the Little Lamb classroom!

We enjoyed our “Deck the Halls” theme by singing Christmas songs, reading Christmas books, and doing Christmas crafts!  We’re certainly in the holiday spirit!  This week we made a Christmas card to thank Santa for the presents he gave us at our party!  We made a handprint Christmas tree using green paint.  We topped off our tree with a yellow handprint star too!  We decorated the tree with circle stickers as ornaments.  The teacher also made a special picture collage of all our photos with Santa! 

We also decked out our classroom by making photo frame wreaths!  We used green dabbers for the wreath and red dabbers for the berries.  We made a shiny sequin ornament to hang on our Christmas trees at home too!

We continued our ABC Handprint project with the letter “J!”  The teacher painted our hands the color purple.  We pasted on a purple head in the shape of a semi circle and two eyes. The teacher drew on a mouth and we used blue dabbers to make bubbles.  Can you guess what we made?  We made jumping jellyfish!  “J” says “juh juh” jacket, jam, jar, jeep, jingle bells, jungle.  We colored a jellyfish in the shape of a capital “J” too! 

We reviewed the color red this week, too.  Red is a very merry Christmas color!  Santa sure wears a lot of red!  We colored an apple, a ladybug, two balloons, a rocket ship, and three rubies all the color red!

This week wraps up our last week of the school semester!  What awesome work we did these past few months!!!  Way to go, Little Lambs!

Have a very wonderful and restful winter holiday and we’ll see you in the New Year!

Busy Bees

Hello and happy Friday!

For the last week of the class, the Busy Bees continued learning for our theme this month which is, “Christmas around the World”. We talked about how Christmas is celebrated in Japan, foods we eat during Christmas holiday, and lots of presents they want to get from Santa. We also used some Christmas flashcards to learn more vocabulary. Some of the words are: candy cane, ornament, elf, Christmas tree, stockings, reindeer, etc.

Since our theme for this month is all about Christmas, the Busy Bees made lots of crafts this week. We made toilet paper roll snowman. We sang the song “I’m a Little Snowman” before making the craft. We used felt for the scarf, pompoms for the earmuffs and sequin for the buttons.  We also made snowflakes using Popsicle sticks; we painted them white and added some sequin to look it more sparkly.

For the letter of the week, we did letter Mm. M is for monkey, mouse, and mittens. We made mittens for the craft. We also traced letter M after the craft.

Over all the Busy Bees did a great job this year!

Enjoy your Holidays and see you all next year!

Hello and happy Friday! It was our last week this year!

We started off the week with Birthday parties on both Monday and Tuesday!! 2 parties in a row! Lucky us! 

Since it was our last week in school before Christmas, we did lots of Christmas crafts this week :)

We made colorful ornaments with a fluffy snowman made out of shaving cream and glue! It's actually very fluffy looking and is very neat! It was like a little science experiment and art mixed together :)

We also wrote a thank you letter to Santa Clause for all the gifts he brought for us at the school Christmas party last week. We all wrote down what we got and why we liked it so much. We then put the letters in an envelope addressed to Santa Clause in North Pole and went to the post office to send it off :) 
Hope Santa likes our letters!

As our last project of the year, we made snowman photo frames to bring home to our parents as a little Christmas gift.
We hope you like them mommies and daddies :)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

See you all next year!
