The preschoolers started their day with a coloring sheet of baby Jesus laying in the manger. After they finished coloring, they flipped their paper over and wrote their name!
During Jesus time we talked about the shining star that led the wise men to baby Jesus. We talked about another shining light in our lives, JESUS! Jesus lights up our lives even when things are going bad. We said our words of the week with some motions to help remind us of this “Arise, shine, for your light has come”. Ask your child to show the motions that went along with this!
We rotated through centers which were searching for jingle bells in the sensory table, the train table, playdough with Christmas cookie cutters and chalkboards! We then sat down to work on our project for the day which was assembling baby Jesus in the manger! The preschoolers loved putting all of the pieces together to make a manger scene!
After centers, we gathered on the carpet for our Christmas Veggie Tales movie called “The Toy that Saved Christmas”. The preschoolers loved watching the movie!
See some of you tomorrow!
