“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” — Laura Ingalls Wilder

December is a very magical time for children and this month at Busy Bee we want to do all we can to make it a memorable one for your families. November proved to be a very important month for everyone as we all learned the true value of our families and how much we truly have to be thankful for. As we transition into our new month and the beginning of the holiday season we are planning for three weeks of fun activities, creative crafts and special celebrations. decorations

We are starting the month off learning about the Letter D for December. With it we will be focusing on Decorating as our classrooms transform into a winter wonderland fit for Santa himself. pinata-1 One of our oldest holiday traditions at Busy Bee is creating pinatas for our big Christmas Party (it will be on Friday December 21 from 10:00-12:30). This week we have begun to create our pinatas based on the children’s classic ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?’ by Bill Martin Jr. pinata-2

5-little-frogs Singing, stories and music play such an important part in your child’s emerging literacy and this has been a focus of our’s over the past three months of school. This is something that we are continually building upon and this month will be no different. This week the children have begun to act out some of the fun songs that we have been singing in class. As they have fun singing and acting out these songs their expressive language and overall confidence will grow. So at this year’s Christmas Party the children will be doing a special performance to go along with our special book that is the theme of our pinatas. We will also be trying our very first attempt at a readers theatre activity as well (this has the making to be one of the cutest activities we have ever done :-) ).

With the holiday season comes lots of eating, snacking and treats. Everyone loves a good treat and parents do like to send in snacks that your children do love…. BUT we would like to remind everyone that there are plenty of great snack options that could be a healthier alternative. Over the past few weeks we have seen many great options (bannanas, yogurt, grapes, granola bars, V-8 drink, cranberry juice, cereal….) and low and behold the children have been loving it.

“Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.” — Larry Wilde

Lets Enjoy
