With Christmas nearly here, I thought there would be no better way to introduce the letter "J" than with a J is for Jesus theme. The crazies have jumped right into the Christmas story all while learning "J", Jesus, & other fun things with candy canes. We used the candy canes to show the letter J & have made plenty of crafts tied back to them. Deacon has been working on some Christmas math while Kennedy has been perfecting tracing & coloring her shapes. We spent our day in the kitchen making candy came cookies & we practiced patterns by making candy canes with our thumbprints. It has been a fun way to kick off Christmas with the crazies all while teaching the real reason for this season!!
J is for Jesus!!
One of our many books that tell the real reason for the season
D's holiday themed math
K got some new Minnie stickers that she was excited to use for shape & sticker time!
We colored candy canes, turned them into a J, & glues baby Jesus in it on some straw.
Candy canes were our go-to treat for cooperation during learning!
