We began doing some Christmas activities this week. Check out our bulletin board! During the next several weeks, we will be doing more and more festive activities to get ready for Christmas.
Happy Thanksgiving! To celebrate Thanksgiving, we had our annual Thanksgiving program yesterday afternoon. The preschoolers and kindergarteners worked so hard and were so excited to perform!
After we performed, we were able to be part of the audience for our Kindergarten friends. Great job, Kindergarten!
This afternoon, both preschool classes worked together to break open the piñatas that we made during small group time last week. It was a lot of work! Those piñatas were definitely well-made. They were difficult to break open but we did it!
This week, our dramatic play center turned into a grocery store! Thank you to all families that brought in boxes and containers for us to use in the center. When a preschooler goes to the store center, they choose a job (stock clerk, manager, cashier, or customer) before they start playing. It is amazing to listen to the conversations during their play and exploration. It's been a big hit already!
Today, we had a visit from Father Dan. Both preschool classes combined to watch a short video about Our Lady of Guadalupe and then Father Dan taught us about the many different symbols in the image. Thank you, Father Dan! We learned so much!
