We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

Thursday, Dec. 11, 2008

Of course we started off with our learning box question. What is your favorite: Frosty or Rudolph? We all had a hard time deciding, but I think Rudolph won out! During calendar time, while we talked about the weather, Corey pointed out the sunny sky outside.

Then Miss Amber brought some fun Christmas songs to dance to! First we did a fun Fingerplay.
The Chimney
Here is the chimney, (make fist with thumb inside)
Here is the top, (other hand over fist)
Open the lid, (remove hand)
Out Santa will pop! (pop up thumb)

Then we danced to a version of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

1. Let's all do a little clapping,

let's all do a little clapping,

Let's all do a little clapping,

And spread Christmas cheer.

2. (jumping)

3. (twirling)

Next we re-read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett.

We completed another page in our Christmas books. Today we colored ornaments!

After snack we drew cards from the review bags. We reviewed Jj. The kids gave a thumbs up or thumbs down if the word began with the Jj sound... jump, tree, Santa, jewel, reindeer, jingle.
We played "Is it 5?" After we counted as a class, the children did their own worksheet.
