Today is National Popcorn Day! Huzzah! And of course we couldn’t let that go by without a little celebration. Today for snack we had a little popcorn along with our regular snack (apologies to parents who packed a home lunch and you see a lot of it go home today).
We are so excited to be back together at the preschool and to have our very first Chapel of 2021!
Today we discussed what we remembered about the Christmas Story and the birth of Jesus. Where he was born and who Jesus’ first visitors were. Then we learned about the Wise Men from the East and read Matthew 2:1-12 as well as the Rhyme Bible. We learned how the Wise Men (Magi) followed the star from far away to find the new born king (Messiah). The children had a wonderful time learning the first two verses of We Three Kings and discussing the three gifts that the Wise Men brought. It was a fantastic way to start a new year together.
Today we started with our morning meeting where we sang, “We wish you a Merry Christmas”. This has been our morning song all December. After morning meeting we had a snack with a tiny sweet treat. The friends ate them so quickly the teachers couldn’t even get pictures!
We saved our songs until the end of the day and we only had a few friends but we wore our hats and sang one of our Christmas songs.
Next week is the last week before the Christmas Break ( December 21st- January 4th) and we have a couple of fun days planned! December 17th and 18th are our PJ & Hot Cocoa Days! We will wear pajamas and watch short holiday movies like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the original Grinch!
