Happy Holidays

It is hard to believe that the second nine weeks will be over next Wednesday and we will be at the half way point of the school year.  We had a wonderful time learning about Reindeer in our class this week. We wrote an informational paper with the facts that we learned.  The Gingerbread Girl visited our classroom on Thursday. She read about her adventures and we wrote about our favorite part of the story. Enjoy some photos of our adventure below.

Welcome to December


We have 2 ½ weeks left until the winter break and we will be in high gear as we try to finish up the academic requirements needed before this nine week session ends. We will have our holiday party on Monday, December 18. Since a traditional party is very chaotic in a Kindergarten classroom our children will be going to different centers that all contain crafts or snacks that have to do with holidays, winter and gingerbread as their party.  We will share a decorated cookie and juice while watching a movie after our rotation.

Please work with your children on their sight words.  Sight words open a huge window to help your child learn to read. Students need to know 25 at the end of the second nine week period and 50 by the end of the third nine weeks.

Look at our count down calendars to the holiday break. We will remove one every day for the next 13 days until only our snowman remains.
