The students enjoyed going to Chapel everyday during Spiritual Life Week. As they heard Biblical truths about the life of Saul/Paul, they learned how to draw closer to God. It was a time of praise and ‘jumping” into their faith.
In addition to learning about the birth of Jesus, the Kinderkids learned about La Posada, a Mexican Christmas procession and party. For our Christmas party, the children participated in craft activities, then donned their Mexican costumes, and paraded through the hallways, stopping at various classrooms asking, “Is there room in the inn?” Of course, the answer was “no.” While processing, they sang Christmas carols, including Feliz Navidad, while led by our strolling mariachi. They ended up in the gym where each child had a turn batting at the piñata, which soon broke open. The scrambling for candy and treats began! Back in our room, the children enjoyed a “Mexican” lunch, complete with tacos, chips and salsa, and Mexican hot chocolate. What a great time they had!
It was a peppermint world in Kindergarten as the children worked in centers doing “candy cane” activities. We also learned about the Legend of the Candy Cane and how it relates to Jesus. Of course, eating brownies and peppermint ice cream was a “minty” delight!
