On November 30, the Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade classes had an Advent retreat. We divided the kids into mixed grade level groups and then each group rotated to three classrooms to learn about Advent. We learned about the Holy Family, the Annunciation, and about Advent in general. We talked about Advent wreaths too.
The kids in my room also helped make this bulletin board display of Bethlehem.
Last week, my class learned about Mary. Here is an anchor chart that we made.
We also made these cute crafts from the Oriental Trading Company.
We had a wonderful time learning about Advent.
