Happy Birthday Jesus!

Every year we have a Happy Birthday Jesus party where we celebrate the birth of Jesus and play fun games, make crafts, decorate cookies and sing songs that we have practiced over and over again!

This year is a little different in how we celebrate, but we are still having fun and enjoying this special season with each other.

The first big thing we did was sing the songs we have been practicing as a class. What we actually got on video might be a little different than what we practiced, but it was fun!

This is the song that they love the most! They ask for it even when we play on the yard.
Before we sang this song the class was shown tiny cupcakes they would get as a party treat. Needless to say, we were excited!

Ms. Sheri read to the class during snack time! We talked about Jesus and his birthday and why we celebrate it.

We enjoyed our sweet treat! (We also had our regular snack which were Saltines!)

Ms. Sheri read The Gingerbread Man during Morning Meeting and after snack we made our own Gingerbread people and Santa hats and decorated both with glitter and jewels and googly eyes!

Some of our Gingerbread people!
We colored our hats with our favorite colors.
After nap we wore our hats outside; even when we were riding our bikes.

Even though it wasn’t the same as usual we had a pretty good time!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Our traditional Happy Birthday Jesus celebration looked a little different this year but in no way did we let that shift our focus from the reason for the season.

In Room 2, we dressed up in our Christmas festive best, sang happy birthday, baked cupcakes and enjoyed a special pizza lunch.

As we head into this season of giving, we remember that God has given us the most special gift, his son Jesus, to be the light of the world. Here’s a glimpse into our fun and festive day celebrating our savior, our king–our friend Jesus!

“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Like 2:10-11

Stone Soup Days

Hello Room 1A families! We wanted to share these memories with you! We had two wonderful Stone Soup days! Stone Soup is all about understanding the importance of sharing and community. We strive to teach our students to be selfless and kind. It’s all about coming together as a team to accomplish our goals! They loved helping to make the soup. They shredded chicken, cut celery and carrots, watched the soup cook and, the best part, enjoyed the soup for lunch! We hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them! Thank you to everyone who brought their Stone Soup items and the Tavey Family for donating the cutest Thanksgiving bowls!

Happy Thanksgiving

As we reflect today on all the wonderful blessings we have in our lives we give thanks to God for every single one of them. I am so very thankful for each and every one of you and your beautiful children and I thank God for bring you into my life.

Stone Soup ( The Sequel!)

Day 2 of Stone Soup and we were just as excited. We got to cut celery and carrots and potatoes. Which was a little tough but still so much fun!

We chopped and it was fun!
Celery was kind of hard but we did it!
Ms. Joy came and read to us! We loved it so much.

While we were waiting for our soup to cook we played on the patio and in our classroom. We asked over and over if it was time for soup yet.

We love our classroom and all the fun toys.
We made Thanksgiving wreaths and we also sang Jingle Bells!
We ate our soup! It was even better the second day!
Mmmmm!
In the afternoon we danced to music in the yard and played The Floor is Lava!

We loved our Stone Soup days! We drank juice and had so many strawberries.

Thank you Room 3 Families for helping to make our Stone Soup so special! We couldn’t have done it without you!

We wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!

Stone Soup Days in Room 2

Our Stone Soup Days were a wonderful way to celebrate the Thanksgiving season. We began our week by reading different versions of Stone Soup and discussing the concept of collaboration and sharing. On Thursday and Friday the children cut different vegetables to add to a big pot of broth, we added some seasoning and pasta to finish our masterpiece. Next, came our celebration feast with our delicious soup, rolls, apple cider, strawberries and our festive decor. Our room 2 family sat together in delight enjoying our soup and each other’s company. To top off the festivities we had a special guest reader today, who we lovingly refer to as papa. He read Bug Soup to the children over a zoom link so the children were able to interact with him. This last week has reminded us of the special blessings God has granted us and we are thankful for our room 2 family.

Fall Art Explorations

This month has been so much fun and busy. We’ve created many different artwork in art studio and under the double trees that’s found in the play yard. From fall sculptures, gourd rolling paintings to nature collages, tie dye magnet turkeys and cinnamon art. Much was explored and discovered…. Happy Thanksgiving to all our wonderful students and families. -Ms. Monica, Preschool Art Teacher

Stone Soup!

Stone Soup has been so much fun! Room 3 was so excited to help Ms. Sheri cook our soup. We got to chop the vegetables that went into our soup!

Chopping and cutting is hard work!

We went in groups to cut our vegetables and we couldn’t wait to help out!

We got to cut the potatoes for our soup.

This week we have been reading Stone Soup books and the overarching theme is sharing. We are thankful that our families have been so generous!

We got to play while we waited for our soup to cook!
We all tried the soup! And some of us ate more than 1 bowl!

Thank you for the beautiful tablecloths and napkins. Thank you for the delicious strawberries, bread and juice. We loved it all. We couldn’t have done it without you!

FOX TAIL SOUP

Thank you parents for supporting us in this long time tradition at Pasadena Christian Preschool. There are many versions to stone soup and the shortest story for class 4 is “Fox Tail soup,” Thank you for bringing all the vegetables and sides. The kids had fun chopping and tasting them. The soup was delicious and all the kids seemed to enjoy the soup. Enjoy your Thanksgiving week, stay safe and may God bless you and your family.

Give Thanks to the Lord for He is good. Psalms 106:1
