First Week of the New Year 1-5-2015 thur 1-9-2015

I'm back  and it feels nice to be blogging again. I had a nice Christmas vacation. This week both classes made a hand print Octopus. They also made 2015 New Year fireworks using red paint. They made snowflakes out of Popsicle sticks and put glitter on them. The Rainbow class did the Weekly Reader where they learned about frozen cities. The activity was to write letter F on the pictures that were frozen and a letter M for the pictures that were melting. The Rainbow class made Owls using brown  paper. They traced letter O in their composition books. They also traced uppercase O and lowercase o. Both classes colored a picture of Mary and Jesus as a boy.  We also some new kids in the Sunshine class and two of the kids from the Sunshine class moved to the Rainbow class.

Last Posting because of Christmas Vacation 2014

This week the children did a lot of Christmas projects. They were doing four projects in one week. I personally think that's a little much because it puts a lot of stress on them and on us to try to  get everything done  before Christmas vacation. Maybe someday we can cut it down to two projects. Today was the last day of school.  The children  brought goodies for their classmates and teachers. In the morning I had them do one last Do A Dot Art stamping.

I will write again next year. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Our Christmas program was about Jesus being born. One girl played Mary and a boy played Joseph. Three boys played the wise men and a bunch of boys played the shepherds. Some boys played the animals. All the girls played the angles. The songs they sang were Behold The Star, Go Tell It On The Mountain, Glory Glory Glory To God,  The Virgin Mary Had A Baby Boy, Wasn't That A Mighty Day.

My last post will be on  Friday December 19 th  because I will be off from  Monday December 22 to  Friday January 2 because of Christmas vacation.

This week has been a crazy week because Thanksgiving is next week. The Sunshine class and the Rainbow class glued colorful squares into the letter M cause that was the letter of the week on yellow paper. The Rainbow class  also made  turkey hand prints on brown paper. Both classes colored paper plates using different colors for the turkey feathers. On Thursday  both classes  glued on the turkeys on to their paper plates. The Rainbow class colored a picture of the bible story Jesus feeds the 5,000 people.  Today both classes made an Indian  out of hand prints using brown, red, yellow, green, and  orange paint.

P.S. Been working short handed but that will change next week. The school hired a  part-time helper. Yahoo! Also I apologize for not blogging last week because I had a bad cold.

Week of 10-27-2014 thru 10-31-2014

This week The Rainbow class decorated pumpkins by gluing on eyes and made a face. They also made another pumpkin and glued  on black tissue paper on it. All of the children took turns carving a pumpkin for Halloween.  We also played the game called "Who Stole The Cookie From The Cookie Jar." The game goes like this: you call a child's name and you tell them they stole the cookie from the cookie jar and the child says who me and everyone says yes you then the child says it couldn't be, then we  say then who ? Then the child picks another child.  The Rainbow class traced letter J. They also did the Weekly Reader where they learned 8 facts about spiders.  The activity was to draw 8 legs on one spider to make it look like its friend. The Rainbow class colored a picture of Daniel and the lion's den. Today all the children dressed up for Halloween and we went on a fall parade. We took the children around  to the shops. They got a lot of candy.
