December 18-22


We wrapped up our Christmas preparations by exploring the role of the star in the nativity story, making a nativity scene Christmas card using stickers, and sewing together paper Christmas stockings.  On Thursday, we "undecorated" our tree and packed up all of our ornaments to take home and share with our family.  We had to be very careful not to break anything.  Some of our ornaments are very fragile.  Then we decorated the tree with Ms. Torborg’s ornaments.  In the afternoon, we exchanged gifts with our Advent Angels and celebrated with our room parents.  On Friday, we celebrated with our 5th grade Buddy by exchanging gifts and playing games.  We also read the Christmas story out of the bible.  We moved our creche pieces into our stable as we read the nativity story.  We were finally able to add baby Jesus to our manger.
