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.)
  • Bible: The Christmas Story
  • Reading/Phonemic Awareness: we will introduce the letter “Kk” and the sound /k/ makes

  • On very cold days, we will have the children wait inside the student building during carline.  We will walk children to their cars. This may take just a minute or two longer than on warm days when we can wait outside, but we want to keep the children warm and safe.
  • If your child brings his/her lunch, DHS mandates the lunch box must contain:  1 protein, 1 grain, 1 fruit and 1 vegetable OR 2 fruits OR 2 vegetables.  Thank you for your help with this!
