Last week was so much fun! We did our count down chains, Santa letters and mobiles, Triangle Christmas tree and worked on our gifts. We read books, talked about vowels and practiced our place value with tens and ones. Friday finished our week with a visit from St. Nicholas! What fun to hear the bells and find goodies in our shoes!
This week, will continue to be just as busy and hopefully just as fun! We are reading The Gingerbread Man and many varieties of it! We will be talking about the sequence and which ending is the best. We will continue with one and tens, and keep working on vowels! Besides all that, we will be putting the finishing touches on our Holiday program!
Friday, the children are supposed to “dress up” for the show. I suggest that the children wear regular uniform clothes to school and bring their other outfit with them. It is pizza day, after all, and we want them to look their best.
The performance is in the gym and begins at 2. Another suggestion is arrive a little bit earlier if possible. The show is generally pretty packed and so is the parking lot.
After the performance, you will be able to pick your children up from the classroom. That way we can ensure everyone goes with the correct family!
Warmly, Laura Sanders
