Pre-School

In Preschool we try to bridge the gap between home and school by making the children feel secure in new surroundings.  We start each day with prayer and a Bible story.  We stress kindness, sharing, taking turns, and saying “please” and “thank you”.

Throughout the year we work on upper and lower case letters, numbers 1-10, colors, shapes, printing names, Pledge of Allegiance, singing, and much more.  We end the day with a craft that centers around the Bible story for the day.

In November we spent the month talking about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. We learned that the pilgrims came to America to worship God, and they were thankful to him for their safe  travel, their native American friends, and their abundance of food. We all shared things for which we are grateful to God. We are learning to recite our ABC’s as well as counting 1-10.

Our songs were “Father Abraham” and “Little Teapot”.

December was focused on the birth of Christ. We learned about the angel Gabriel, Mary and Joseph, the journey to Bethlehem, the wisemen and shepherds, and the birth of Jesus. By the time Christmas vacation came, it made us happy to notice the children were talking more about Jesus than Santa. Instead of exchanging gifts, the children brought in canned goods for under the tree.
These were donated to the food bank.

Our songs for December were “Away in a Manger’, “Jingle Bells”, and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”.

We hope you all had a blessed Christmas and would like to  wish you a joyous new year.

Please continue to support the Preschool through your prayers.

God Bless,

Barb and Sue
