We invite all children, who did not receive gift bags last week to contact us, so that we may distribute them. Also, we remind parents that our winter break has begun and our next class will be held on January 15, 2017.
At the Catechism, the children learned why we give gifts and what they mean, and that а gift represents love. The children learned about Christmas and the greeting “Christ is born” and the appropriate response,”Indeed, He is born!” The children sang the songs “Marijo Slavna” and “Sveti Sava Srbe Voli”.
In Serbian language classes, the preschool group and younger schoolchildren repeated the letters learned so far and practiced reading and writing the following:
- А, В, С,
- Љ, У, Б,
- О, И, Л,
- Т, Р, З
- М, Е, Н
- Д, К, Ћ
- Ј, Ч, Ц
The younger school children also wrote Christmas cards. Older students learned about numbers, analyzed the story “Čardak ni na nebu ni na zemlji”, learned about the speech organs, the sounds and syllables.
Homework for all children: Learn a poem of their choice about St. Sava (poems can be found here), and continue to practice songs “Marijo Slavna”, “Sveti Sava Srbe Voli” and “Himna Sv. Savi”.
