St. Paul Nursery School Family Newsletter
November 2022

          Hello and welcome to the CHRIST-mas season!!  We have been busy bees (now elves!) at preschool and will continue to do much with our time until the holiday.  In November, Mrs. Ramiza taught us about letters F, G, and H with a week of Thanksgiving activities.  She even snuck in some review work!
We practiced both the upper and lower cases of our alphabet letters as well as the sound(s) each makes.  Our craft projects included frogs, flamingos, fish, goats, garbage trucks, giraffes, glitter/glue, hippos, hedgehogs, hens, and hermit crabs!!  That’s a lot of crafting and you can see it all-it’s posted on our preschool Facebook page.

          I also used the month of November to focus on Bible stories about the letters F, G, and H.  For letter F week, we learned of a little boy who went with 5,000 other people to visit Jesus.  At day’s end, everyone was so hungry.  All they had were the 2 fish and five loaves of bread he brought.  After offering it to Jesus, Jesus thanked God for this little bit of food and the crowd was blessed with so much more food-enough that everyone was so full and there were 12 baskets of left overs!!  Wow, that was a -------!!  What’s that word?  Ask your child!  We said it was a miracle!  In letter G week, we learned how we talk to God.  Can we talk to God with our phones, computers, or the mail?  No, the only way that works is praying to God.  We learned about 3 ways to pray. 
Do you know the ways? Ask your little one, he’ll know.  God will listen to us anywhere and anytime of the day.  What a great feeling!  We also had some review time when we practiced all our favorite stories from the whole Fall.  We celebrated our Bible knowledge with a “quiz game contest” and each child got a “good job” prize from our treasure box.


          Geography: We learned the following states and each’s fun fact-Illinois (first light bulb), Indiana (race car race-500 laps), Iowa (corn), Kansas (middle of            the USA), Kentucky (1st Post-It note), Louisiana (Mardi Gras), Maine (blueberries)
          Vocabulary: vote, fussy, quarrel, adventure, compact, barge, quirky, stubborn, enormous
          Dates to Remember:
          * Monday, 12/12-Christmas Concert-both classes together, children arrive 6:30pm in class to prepare and families wait up in the Church until our                          7pm concert.
          * Thursday 12/22 & Friday 12/23: Classroom Christmas Parties
          * December 26-January 2, 2023-Christmas Recess
          * January 3, 2023-school resumes
          * Please send your child to school with a coat and hat.  We continue our fire drills through the winter and the children need to be dress accordingly.                       We will often go to the playground too and mittens, boots, and snowpants will be needed.
          * We are collecting new hats and mittens on our “Hat and Mitten Tree” in the lobby.  This outreach effort supports the Salvation Army and the needs                   of individuals they see.  We will collect until Wednesday, 12/14.
          * Fall assessments have been distributed.  If you’d like to meet with the teachers to review your child’s progress, we are available to you!

Thank you for allowing me to spend the mornings with your children. 
We love celebrating the learning and the accomplishments they make academically, socially, and personally!!
Have a wonderful holiday season and be joyous of the “reason for the season!”

Love, Mrs. Wendy Clark-Darby
