We’ll review patterning with colorful Christmas lights.

Everybody Has a Name

Everybody has a name
Some are different
Some the same
Some are short
Some are long
All are right
None are wrong
I like my name
It’s special to me
It’s exactly who
I want to be.

The children are doing a great job practicing for the Christmas show!

our hungry birds and animals!
