                                 December 2023



                 Hello all, this past month Mrs. Darby worked on letters I, I and on this Christmas season. Your little ones made a portrait of themselves, iguanas, igloos, and icy I's for letter I. For letter J, they made jungle binoculars, jingle bell necklaces and jungle J's. For Christmas, we learned and made snowflakes and snowmen. Just a reminder to look at the art wall. Your kids have done a lot of art and continue to make more each week.



                During Bible story time with me we learned about the birth of Isaac. Isaac was a gift from God to Abraham and Sarah. They laughed when God said they would have a son. God also said that their descendants would be as many as the stars in the sky. How many stars can they count? But in the end, they had a son and named him Isaac, which means,"he laughs." See if your child remembers what his name means? The last two weeks we were on the story of Christmas. We talked about an angel that visited Mary. What was his name? She would be blessed with a son, the son of God. What was his name? That's right Jesus, now it was almost time for him to be born. They traveled to Bethlehem, and it took a very long time. So, they needed somewhere to rest. Well, they knocked on doors, but they didn't have any room, so they had to leave. Where did they stay? They found a barn that they could rest in.They weren't alone, there were barn animals too! While they were there Baby Jesus was born. What did they lay him in?-Ask your child and see if they remember. Jesus was born for you and for me because he loves us very much.


Geography: We have been learning about the map about the United States of America and the compass rose. The children will learn a fun fact about 1 or 2 states per week. The compass rose will teach us which direction to go from New York to get to the new state. This month's states were- Hawaii (volcanos/surfing), Idaho (potatoes), and Illinois (The first McDonald's)


Vocabulary: Iguana, igloo, jungle, mañana, manger, brave, stable, gifts and descendants.
