Last week, we began our Advent activities. Angie, our Advent Angel, visits us every day with a an act of kindness for us to do. We hope you enjoy the Advent wreath we sent home. We say our Advent prayer and sing our Advent songs getting ready. We are practicing every day for our Christmas Presentation. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRACTICE YOUR CHILD'S LINES WITH HIM/HER. We are speaking slowly and clearly.
We begin the second week of Advent, continuing to get our hearts ready for the birth of Jesus. During this time, we pray for patience and tranquility amid the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. We remember JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. Advent is a time of hope. We will discuss what we are hoping for. We will celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Wednesday and the feast of St. Lucia on Thursday. We are busy little elves getting ready for Christmas! We are working on some special gifts for some very special people! We continue with our theme, reading books about the seasons and what animals do in winter. We continue to meet letters and their sounds. Our word wall words for this week are on and you. We are finding shapes all around us.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD USES THE BATHROOM BEFORE HE/SHE COMES TO SCHOOL. We use the bathroom at Snack time, lunchtime and before nap time. If your child needs to use the bathroom frequently, please let us know.
We are seeing a lot of food go to waste at lunchtime. If possible, we will send home any leftovers.
Please send in healthy snacks. Candy makes us crazy!
