Welcome to Preschool

Classroom News and Notes

Week of November 29th

I hope your Thanksgiving celebration was absolutely wonderful. I am so thankful for you and your child. Thanks for sending them to Prince of Peace! As we flip the calendar..we’ll be decorating the classroom to look like Christmas this week. I can’t tell you how much I love Christmas! 

 

This week in preschool we will be learning about being faithful to God. We are blessed to live in a country where we still get to practice freedom of religion. It was not the case long ago under the wicked rule of King Nebuchadnezzar.  We see how Daniel was faithful to God  and how God protected him from hungry lions. We will also see how Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were also protected from the hot flames of the furnace. God will protect his people. He tells us to be faithful to him, to be fearless, and comforted that he will always be with us. As our school year theme sums it up, “ Light up the world!” Please read two stories this week on page 223 (A very hot fire) and on page 237 (Daniel and the Lion’s Den) We’ll be learning the song, “This little light of mine.”

 

We are moving on to the letter Ii. I is for ice cream, Fire and Ice, ice skates, igloos and ink pads, and “introducing________!…”

 

In reading we’ll continue to work with Rhymes. We’ll work with the sight words, “the, I, and, see, can”

 

In math, we’ll work with ABC patterns and writing numbers 1 and 2.

 

In music we will start learning our recitation song for the Children’s Christmas Service. Please mark your calendars! Sunday, December 19th at 9am and 10:30am. 

 

In science we’ll be making ice cream and popsicles!  We’ll learn what freezing temperatures do to water. We’ll also see what salt does to ice. 

 

 

Have an incredible week!
