PRESCHOOL: Miss Lokensgard
The focus this week is on Baby Jesus and how he was born in a barn. We are learning new Christmas songs to spread the good news of Baby Jesus.
This week we are also learning about Gingerbread man and gingerbread houses. On Tuesday we made our own gingerbread man art project; we got to decorate it with yarn, markers, buttons, and sequence. On Thursday we will see if the gingerbread man will sink or float in water, soda, and vinegar.
We are focusing on the letter Ee this week, we built the letter out of popsicle sticks and corn.
At the activity center this week we put letters on mega blocks and had them build it with the correct letter. We also counted the gingerbread men with clothes pins and practiced our scissors skills. I also brought out the scooters a couple times this week to the basketball court and had them race each other to see who was the fastest.
Our memory treasurer for this month is “Today, a savior has been born” Luke 2:11

This week in our Bible lesson we met Shadrach, Meshack, and Abednego. These three men trusted God and did not worship King Nebuchadnezzar. Instead, they trusted God to protect them, or take them to heaven, as they were thrown into the fiery furnace. God sent an angel to save them in the furnace. King Nebuchadnezzar made a law that no one can talk bad about the one true God.
