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.

Christmas Program

Last night was our Christmas program with all the practicing the children did beforehand really paid off because they did a great job. I was so proud of all of them. 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.

Week of 12-1-2014 thru 12-5-2014

This week both classes  glued on pieces of newspaper on pink paper and covered letter N because that's the letter of the week. The Rainbow class did the Weekly Reader where they learned about  how different  religions celebrate Christmas. The activity was they had to circle pictures of different things involving Christmas.  The Rainbow class traced letters M and N in their composition books. Both classes colored a picture of Mary and Joseph. The Rainbow class traced lower case n and upper case N.

Next week on  Friday December 12th is our Christmas program. There will be a short post on that date. We have been practicing for the Christmas program this week. We will be practicing all next week until the night of the program.
