December 10

Dear Parents,

We are excited to be sending home information for IXL today, a web-based math program that your child can explore and do “homework” at home now. Each child has their own username and login.
We will set monthly goals for them to work on. They can always work on more, but at least try to cover the areas below.
Below are the goals for December and January. The letter in your child’s folder will explain in more detail.

December 3-7

“Run, run, as fast as you can, you can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man!”

This week’s centers were focused on the Gingerbread Man. We read several different versions of the story including the The Gingerbread Girl.

We went on another sensory walk and recorded what we observed.

In science we are learning about birds. We went bird watching outside and listened to the different sounds.

We wrote letters to Santa and put them in Santa’s Mailbox.


THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you for making today such a special day for our kids. They were soooooo excited to perform for you. Here is a video from today.

Looking ahead to next week… 
  • Five Senses Show and Tell- Your child should bring ONE item related to seeing, smelling, tasting, hearing or touching, next week on their regular scheduled day. “If” they choose to bring an item for tasting, please remember no nuts and that individual pieces for 20 students should be prepared.
  • Literature Bags will not come home next week, due to the long Winter Break. Also, we will not be checking out library books due to our long break.
  • Thursday, December 14th is another special celebration day! Please allow your child to wear pajamas to school and bring their favorite stuffed animal. We recommend that students wear normal school shoes, as we will still play outside on the playground. Click on the letter to find out more.

  • Thursday, December 14th is our last day of school for 2017. Students will be dismissed at 11:45. We will see you back on Sunday, January 7, 2018. If your family is traveling earlier than the 14 or later than January 7, please notify me via email.
