Father Amato blessed and lit our Christmas tree on Monday, December 5th. We celebrated with songs from our chorus of students led by Miss Heal. Our families then went inside for refreshments and a Advent coloring activity. A great time was had by all!
Our fifth graders led us in prayer at our Advent Prayer Service. We learned the meaning of the Advent wreath from the people and animals who were there when Jesus was born–the shepherds, the Kings, the lamb and donkey and Mary.
This week we will begin a unit on exploring pumpkins. We will learn that pumpkins grow on a vine and they change colors from green to yellow to orange.
We will carve our own classroom pumpkin and observe the inside. We will dry the pumpkin seeds and save them to plant in the spring. We have learned that spring is planting season and in the fall we bring in the harvest.
We will make a pumpkin-cano and mix shaving cream, glue, and orange paint to create puffy paint pumpkins.
We will explore numbers with 5 Little Pumpkins and shapes with Spookley The Square Pumpkin.Our Religion lesson will be God Made Me Wonderful.
This week we began a unit on the season of Fall.
We learned that this season is called fall or autumn and watched a youtube
video called “Seasons of the Year”
We learned that the leaves on the trees turn brown, yellow, red and orange.
We painted our own fall trees using these colors.
Our letter of the week was Ll is for Leaf.
Some of our stories:
When Autumn Comes
There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves
We’re Going On A Leaf Hunt
The Leaves On The Trees.
As you walk through the neighborhood see if you and your child can find some leaves that are changing colors and bring them in to be displayed on our science table.
