Swimming is often mentioned as the highlight for December JLS – so we gave swimming it’s own post. Here are some other classroom highlights:
Kindergarten: Our students loved making Gingerbread cookies. It was a 3 day project – mixing the dough, cutting out the cookies and decorating them, and eating!
The 1/2 grade class learned about holidays around the World.
The 3/4 grade class did a fun 3-day project making globes.
Day 2 – painting the oceans
Day 3 – adding the continents-
5/6 grade class made topographical maps of the United States.
The end of December JLS means Christmas! But it also means that we have to say good-bye to some of our friends. We gathered on the last day for our pinning ceremony. Each student has a pin with their initials that is pinned to where they are living. Students who were moving changed their pins to recognize their change in location. We also prayed for our friends who were going back to the village and some who were leaving to go to the States.
