Reading: Each week, I take time during rotations to practice different phonics’ skills. The circle and square group are working on short vowel sounds. The hexagon group is working on long vowel sounds. Please make sure to read with your child each night and have your child read to you! The decodable readers coming home are a great book for your child to read to you! J
Math: The students will learn how to count by tens. We will also review AB and ABB patterns.
Religion: In religion, the students will learn about and do activities related to the Christmas story and the true meaning of Christmas, i.e., Jesus’ birth.
Social Studies: The students and I will learn about the holiday traditions from the Netherlands and Sweden.
I will be sending home a homework page today about your family’s holiday traditions. The “Holiday Tradition” page will be due this Friday!
Writing: This week, the students will learn about the three parts of a letter, i.e., greeting, body, and closing. Then, the students will write letters to Santa!
Buddies: On Friday, our 7th and 8th grade buddies will come and help the kinders with a reindeer directed draw art project. Look for them hanging in the hallway! J
Progress reports will be coming home in folders on Wednesday. All the copies are yours to keep. Please sign the envelope and return it to school. Thanks!
This Thursday is the students’ Christmas Musicale. Students need to be at the Community Hall @ 6:15 PM. Clean up and tear down of the set will happen right after the musicale. If you are willing and/or able to help, it is very much appreciated!
Thanks so much! J
