December 21-25

This week we wrapped up our Christmas preparations by reviewing needs and wants. We also listened to the story The Crippled Lamb and then watched the movie. Afterwards, we talked about things that were the same in both versions and things that were different. On Tuesday, we celebrated Christmas in our classroom. We started by "undecorating" our tree and packing 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. 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. We also got to open gifts from Ms. Torborg, our Advent Angel, and our 5th grade Buddy before we celebrated with games and treats. It was a fun and exciting week.
