Weekly Update

Another busy Christmas filled week! We started on Monday with Carol Day … we don’t know all the lyrics to very many Christmas carols, is what we realized. On Tuesday we had Gingerbread day, where we decorated cookies and then made gingerbread men with gingerbread play doh. We had a lot of fun on this day 🙂 Wednesday was Kindness day, and we talked about how we can be kind to everyone we meet. And Thursday was Reindeer day … where we played some fun reindeer games, completed a directed drawing (which are so cute, by the way!) and did a flying reindeer experiment. Lots of fun was had this week!

We also spent some time thinking about the shepherds and the wise men in the Christmas story. We spent some time wondering about what it would have been like to be the shepherds, out in the field when a multitude of angels came and told them about the birth of Jesus. What would we have felt? How would we have responded? And the wise men, they brought gifts to Jesus. What gifts do we ourselves have that we can offer to Jesus? How can we give Jesus our best?

Have a great long weekend!
