It was so nice to meet and talk with all of you at our Parent Teacher Conference.  Thank you for attending.  J is for Jesus! Our letter this past week.  The letter is J and the sound is /j/  - /j/ /j/ /j/. Jacket, jump and jellyfish were also repeated a lot. We began our candy cane craft and noticed that a candy cane is the letter J.  J is for Jesus. It also looks like the staff that St. Joseph is holding on our bulletin board. This week they will add the glitter to make their candy canes even more special. We also painted angels, Christmas stockings, and a Christmas tree.  We added ornament shapes to our trees as well.  This helped us to review our shapes, our counting and our gluing skills.  Of course we made our letter J craft.  We lit our first candle for Hope on our Advent wreath craft and each morning the line leader adds an ornament to our Jesse tree.  We listened to the story of how the angel Gabriel came to Mary and Mary said, "Yes" when he told her the message that God gave him.  Advent is a time to wait and we are all preparing for Jesus in our homes, our classroom and our hearts.  We began to practice for our Advent Prayer service.  We read God Bless Our Christmas, Gabriel Visits Mary, The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever, and Elf on the Shelf.  Our elf, Claire, has been very silly sitting in all different places in our room.  Hopefully she will always report good things to Santa each night.  

We will light our second candle on our Advent wreath craft.  It will be for Love.  We will continue adding to our Jesse tree each day.  We will continue to discuss and prepare our classroom, homes and hearts for Jesus' birth (tree, lights, presents, decorations, books, stories, being kind, waiting, etc).  Crafts will include a Santa Claus paper plate craft, Twas the Night Before Christmas craft, work on our gift for our family and practice for our Advent Prayer Service.  Please continue to sing our songs at home (Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Jingle Bells, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, We Wish You a Merry Christmas). This week we will review the letters I and J.  We will shop at our Christmas sale and maybe even see Santa there.  I can't wait!
This is our poem we will be reciting:
When the cold winds blow and down comes the snow
Look out for good ol' St. Nick.
He comes in a sleigh from miles and miles away
And he vanishes really quick!
