Mrs. Brechin – Wednesday

Mrs. Brechin will be filling in for me on Wednesday this week.  She has been in to help us in our classroom and in the library so the boys and girls all know who she is.  It is going to be a fun day with a special treat in the afternoon for the 20 warm fuzzies that the Kindies earned for being awesome!

Christmas Program



We are now full swing into our Christmas theme and preparing for our part in the Primary Christmas Program on Friday, December 18th.  The Kindies will be dressed up as stars.  Mrs. Larrson and I will be creating a star headpiece and are asking you to dress your child in a solid black top and black bottoms (or dark jeans) for the performance.  Fridays are not our usual day but the Part Time Kindies will need to come to our class that morning at 9.  Parents and any friends or family members you wish to invite can then feel free to find a seat in the auditorium.  The program will begin at 9:30.  We will be singing three songs.  I am including the words so that you can help your child to practice at home.  Thanks so much!

1. Twinkle Twinkle

Twinkle, twinkle Little Star

Shining Brightly from Afar

Guiding Wise Men on their Way

Showing them where Jesus Lay

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Shining Brightly from Afar

2. Joy to the World – Chris Tomlin

Joy, unspeakable joy

an overflowing well

no tongue can tell

Joy, unspeakable joy

rises in my soul

never lets me go

(Kindies will just sing this part of the song , the chorus)

3. How Great our Joy

(This one has a lot of tricky wording!!! )

While by the sheep we watched at night

Glad tidings brought an angel bright


(Our class sings the echo)

How great our joy (how great our joy)

Joy, joy, joy (joy, joy, joy)

Praise we the Lord in heaven on high (praise we the Lord in heaven on high)


There shall be born so he did say

In Bethlehem a child today


This gift of God we’ll cherish well

That ever joy our hearts will fill

Pajama Day Reflections


Pajama day last week was a lot of fun!  It felt a little silly to be wearing our jammies to school so that just made the whole day an adventure!  Some of the day’s highlights were sorting our stuffies in different ways (Ex. big/little, teddy bears/not teddy bears) in Math, playing “Blanket, Blanket, Who’s under the Blanket,” making butter, and eating yummy pancakes in the afternoon.  It was a great way to end our nocturnal theme!
