Lots of songs for Concert: December 4, 2008


Today in morning circle we sang "Must Be Santa", "Jingle Bells", "Bells are Ringing", and "Reindeer are Tapping", "Let's Clap Hands" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" in the morning circle.

Next week is the big concert so we have been practicing our songs in large group and in small groups as well.

The kids really enjoy singing the Christmas songs together and dancing around. We also began teaching the actions to 12 Days of Christmas - the kids really enjoy doing the actions to the song.

Then we did S worksheets - the kids created snowflakes out of popsicle sticks and glued on glitter and/or small cut out shapes to make pretty snowflakes for the letter S.

The Kinders got together and practiced for the Friendly Beasts. They enjoyed reading the new book on the Nativity that came from Amazon yesterday. The book was a good addition as it tells the same story as the song - although I didn't know that when I ordered it.

In the afternoon, Jeana practiced with the Rompers, while Lynette and Carol did an activity with the Toddlers, and Yuko practiced handbells with the Kinders.

In closing circle, Jeana read another version of Stone Soup. The children enjoyed this story of a tricky chicken and silly fox more than the traditional stone soup version.
