Letter Ss Week was ssso saturated with Ss words, Sssanta, Ssssleigh, Sssnowman, Ssstar, Sssinging Sssilly Sssongs, and Sssewing Ssstockings! And that was just the Ssstart! Ha ha!
We sang our flag-prep song, changing all the first letters to S. Sut sor sight sand son sor sart. (Put your right hand on your heart if you’re smart) and then, we saw who was smart. Soston was smart. Sendrix was smart. It was fun. Avery became Savory! Fox changed into Socks! Clyde slipped into Slide! Madden was so Sadden. Lincoln was totally Sinkin’! Kohl found Soul! Que became Sue! And Lilly, well, she was just Silly! If Ryder hadn’t been absent, we could have had cider! Ha!
Monday, we started singing Christmas songs. Oh my goodness, how the children love these songs! Singing them together has been a joy! We also did some secret Santa surprises, sewed our stockings and assigned solos. Sienna was funny. Her mom said she was afraid to sing a solo because she didn’t want to “go to the microwave!” When Dani was sewing her stocking she said, “Hey! I’m in trouble with my sewing! That’s the awkward part!” Ha!
We had a great discussion about Santa and the chimney. I wish I had recorded some to their sayings. “We don’t have a chimney!” “Santa is magic!” “If you’re not good, you’ll get a lump of coal!” The children are so excited for what is to come this month.
Thursday, the children had fun creating a “Countdown To Christmas Snowman”. The snowman’s carrot nose should be pointing towards #23 today, signifying 23 more days ‘til Christmas. It will be at #1 before we can turn around!!! Ahhh!
Monday, we will be making candy houses. It will be a very fun day. We crank up the music and sing our hearts out while decorating every side. We will also be painting horns, so plan for a very messy day. We are excited.
We love this time of year. The children come in with raised brows and big smiles anticipating the fun projects that greet them. “Ooooh! My mom is gunna love this!” “This is so pretty!”
Have a great weekend. See everyone back on Monday.
Much love and devotion.
And Miss Julie, too!
