Early Childhood Grades 

Saint Mary’s Nursery December Newsletter

In the month of December, we will be getting ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus and learning about the magical symbols of Christmas.

Religion- We will create a manger craft to show baby Jesus surrounded by the love of the stable animals. We will also make a holiday collage to show and talk about different symbols of Christmas and how they relate to Jesus.

E.L.A- We will continue to build our alphabet and learn about the letters J-L.

We will also have fun making a Christmas tree light craft to identify the letters in their names.

Math- December is all about counting numbers and patterns. As we make festive holiday crafts such as Santa’s, reindeer’s, Christmas trees and candy canes, we will incorporate counting numbers and pattern skills to learn and have fun at the same time.

Fine Motor- Shh! This area is a surprize. Our class will be busy little elves making beautiful keepsake gifts for Christmas. All I can tell you, is that they will practice scissor, painting and glueing skills.
