Autumn Blessings

When I reflect on October and November at Precious Lambs, the repeating theme is "blessed"! We have been so blessed with all of YOU, our Precious Lambs families! We are all so thankful for all of your involvement this fall - from attending School Spirit Day, to visiting as a fireman and veterans. You purchased books from our book fair, which allowed us about 100 free, new books to read to the children at school, and you donated to the Food Drive, which provided hundreds of meals to NC families. You participated in our Trunk or Treat and Thanksgiving Program and Feast, which was so special! Thank you all!

We are also so blessed with health, happiness, faith and forgiveness from our loving God. Thanks be to God from whom all blessings flow! Now, let us go with joy and peace into this Christmas season.

A Word from our Teachers

PreK3 Yellow Lambs The past few weeks leading up to the holidays have been busy, but full of fun and laughter! The children love sharing their home holiday experiences and brainstorming ways to give thanks to the Lord for the blessings they have! We are all about love and kindness as Precious Lambs, so it's the perfect time to incorporate that into our fun holiday lessons!

PreK4 Green Lambs The months of October and November found us learning about Fall things: trees, pumpkins, and apples. We were also hard at work preparing for PLELC's annual Thanksgiving Program and Feast, which was held November 20. The children worked very diligently to present 3 songs to their families - one about the very first Thanksgiving, one about giving thanks to God, and one in which they played bells and used sign language to share the message of "Jesus Loves Me"! We are now excited to begin our countdown to Jesus' birthday, and we will be busy preparing for our Children's Christmas Service on Dec. 20.

We hope you had a most blessed Thanksgiving!

PreK4 Blue Lambs Wow! These past two months have flown by! We have had such fun learning how wonderfully God made our bodies. We talked about our brain and how it is the "boss" of the whole body. We played a game where the children played the "brain" and Miss Royann was the "body." They loved being the "boss" and telling her which direction she should go! We also talked about our likenesses and differences and how special God made each one of us. Later, we went on a leaf walk to see how many leaves we could find, then we ironed our findings.

One precious moment happened when one of the children said, "My mommy

eats the fastest in my family!" Another student said, "How Fast?" The first student replied, "Like 100 miles." :)
