Christmas is almost here!

Advent means “a coming”. The season of Advent is a time of waiting. We are eagerly awaiting the birth of Jesus. Every Monday, during our Morning Meeting, we’ve taken some time to light another candle–there is 1 pink and 3 purple candles. We’ve joined in prayer and offer our own intentions. In our class, we use an Advent calendar to count down the days to Christmas. Do you have an Advent calendar at your home?

This year, our school has decided to support several different organizations. It is important we help others at this time of year, too. For Grades 3-5, the charity we helped was called Joy-FULL Socks. Last Friday, Elaine from Joy-FULL socks came to pick up the donations. She was so excited to see the abundant donations to the worthy cause. Thank-you for your generous help! Men’s Mission & Rotholme Women’s & Family Shelter will be so happy.

Our class has been busy the last 2 weeks creating 3 different Christmas tree ornaments. First, we designed a paper ornament with our picture on the back, then we made a cork snowman, and finally, our marshmallow ornament that we made today. I believe a few marshmallows may have been consumed along the way 😉

Have a look at our creations below along with our Secret Santa exchange:

    Wow! The Christmas ornaments you created are so festive! I must say, my favourite is the sparkly marshmallow ornament. It is very colourful and vibrant! All of them are wonderful additions to our Christmas tree. Have a very Merry Christmas Mrs. Sullivan and grade 3/4 class! See you in 2017!
