The Giraffes - Winter 2017/2018

GOODBYE 2017!    WELCOME 2018!

The year 2017 went by so fast. Thank you for being faithful followers of our blog. We are so excited to continue sharing all the fun and learnings that we are going to have for this new year.

By this time, we would like to share to you the highlights of the things we did for the months of November and December 2017.

"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18. November is Thanksgiving month. We had our special Thanksgiving lunch last November 21. Each class was assigned to cook the food for that day. We were assigned to bake the corn bread which everyone enjoyed to eat. To add color to the celebration, the children made table placemats, and Pilgrim's outfit. We did not forget about making Thanksgiving card for our parents to express our gratitude for loving and taking care of us. On top of all these preparations and Christmas program practices, we were able to learn letters E & F and numbers 7&8.

"Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace goodwill toward men." Luke 2:14 The angels told the shepherds about the birth of Jesus which brought joy to all of them. The children made Poinsettia flowers and hollies to reflect this message on our December bulletin board. We did the Christmas calendar, Advent candles and learned about the Christmas story. The Christmas spirit was so alive with the children during that month. They made Christmas cards and gifts for their parents. We learned letters G & H and numbers 9 & 10.

We had a very inspiring Christmas program with the theme, "Children Around The World" last December 9th at Millbrae Bible Church. The children did a wonderful performance to share the love of God through it.
Our annual Christmas party and exchange gift was last December 19th two days before our Christmas break. We had a 100% attendance this year. For our Christmas ornament, the children made wreaths. They sang "Long time ago in Bethlehem," recited the meaning of the 4 Advent candles before hanging the wreath on the living Christmas tree who happened to be Everett's Dad.

Again, thank you and have a wonderful and prosperous 2018!!!!!
