PH PreK4 eNews

“Run, run, as fast as you can! You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!” We have had such fun this week reading and then comparing/contrasting different versions of this classic.
What an exciting and wonderful time of year! We love watching the wonderment and joy that the children have as we learn about the true meaning of Christmas.  It is fun to hear the children discuss decorating trees, baking cookies, and wrapping presents.  Our favorite part, though, is that we are learning about the greatest gift ever given, our Savior!

Please see the information below regarding our book exchange during class Christmas parties.

Next Week

  • Bible Verse:“Today, a Savior was born for you in the City of David” Luke 2:11 (We will add Luke 2:12 next week, so practice at home as well.)
