Three weeks until Christmas Break! Unbelievable, but here we are. Here is what is on deck for this week:
Sight words: Review all sight words introduced so far
Book: Time to Sleep. Other stories about winter/hibernation
We are very “into” ramps in the block area still, enjoying building ramps and seeing how fast and how far both cars and balls can go down the ramps. It is so interesting to see the children building up each others’ knowledge in this area. In the sand box we are using natural elements such as rocks, sticks, shells, starfish, and pinecones, combined with some jewels, to create intricate designs. Both of these activities are more than what they may appear to be. These activities allow children to experiment with gravity, with design, with patterns, and with motion, in such a real way. No lesson taught by a teacher could give the children these hands on experiences. I have taken some pictures and hope to post them later on this week.
Here are some other things to take note of:
First and Foremost the Holiday Concert is Wednesday at 4:30 in the library. As it will just be our class, there will be plenty of room for grandparents and other family members to attend. The children have been working very hard to be ready for this, I hope you can all attend!
Also on schedule:
December 13: Report Cards go home
December 20: School Skate, class holiday party, last day of classes before the break. Please note that your child will need a hockey helmet for the school skate. If this is an issue, please let me know. The permission slips will be sent home in the upcoming days. Also, if any of you would like to join us, please feel free! This is always a fun time for the children, and the more parents and people, the merrier!
Have a great week!
