December has arrived, all too quickly. The children have a sense of anticipation and excitement for the upcoming holiday season. This month we will discuss Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, and New Year’s. We will also be continuing to work on numbers, letters, shapes, colors, days of the week, months, and weather.

The children are learning new words during our circle time, such as, December, Snow, Holiday, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza and New Year’s Day. The children also enjoy doing music, movement and exercise everyday. They are really doing well and love to do their projects too!
