December 11-15


This week we continued our Christmas preparation.  On Monday, we explored the candy cane.  We listened to the story, The Legend of the Candy Cane, and compared it to the movie.  We also made candy cane ornaments.  On Tuesday, we celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadeloupe.  We heard the story of how Mary chose Juan Diego to give the Bishop a special sign from Our Lady of Guadeloupe.  Plus we spent some time learning about the poinsettia with the story Legend of the Poinsettia and then creating a paper poinsettia flower ornament.  On Wednesday, we read about the important job of the angel bringing the good news to the shepherd.  Then we made an angel ornament out of beads.  On Thursday, we also explored the relationship between goods and services along with reviewing wants and needs.  On Friday, we created a Christmas tree ornament with foam and gems as we talked about the history of the Christmas tree.  The week wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our Christmas concerts.  On Thursday, we performed 2 different concerts for our family and friends at the church and on Friday, we sang in the chapel for the residents at Ecumen.
