Good afternoon!

We made it!!!  It’s our last week before our Winter Break!! 🙂

A few dates to remember- No School on Wednesday, 12/19.  Come to Parent Fair at 10:15.  It is a fun day!

Thursday, 12/20- Wear your jammies to school!

It is that time of year where everyone seems to be sick.  Just a few reminders; must be fever free for 24 hours without medicine (fever is anything over 100.4);  no vomiting or diarrhea for 48 hours; uncontrollable runny/green nose, strep throat 24 hours of medication and fever free.  Remember that even though your child may not have a fever they may be uncomfortable and a day of rest will not hurt!

Here is our plan for the week!

Language Arts:  Names and letter L l   Book:  Christmas Books Opposites; Rhyming

Math: Triangle, Green, counting to 10 , and number 8

Theme: World Holidays

I took very few pictures this week.  🙁  Sorry!

Good Afternoon!

Wow, I cannot believe it is December!!!

Here are a few important dates for December:

12/4  Picture Retake Day

12/6  Career Day (dress your child for what they want to be when they grow up!)

12/12 Late Start School Begins at 9:40

12/19 Winter Fair – NO SCHOOL (bring your child at 10:15 for the activities)

12/21-1/4  NO SCHOOL

This Thursday we will have career day.  All week we will be talking about community helpers.  I thought it would be fun to play a little dress up on Thursday and we can talk about what we want to be when we grow up 🙂  You can either bring a bag of stuff that person might have or dress up how the person would dress when they go to their job.

On Wednesday, December 19th we will not have class.  You will bring your child to school at 10:15 and go through stations throughout the school.  This is a fun parent/child day.  Please try to leave siblings at home.

Here is our plan for the week:

Language Arts:  Names and letter L l   Book:  Clothesline Clues to Jobs We Do; Opposites; Rhyming

Math: Square, White, counting to 10 , and number 8

Theme: Community Helpers

Enjoy the pictures and your weekend! 🙂



phones/other information

Posted on


New phones were put into our building.  My classroom no longer has a direct number.  This is so if an emergency happens first responders know exactly which room to go to.   If you need to reach me for any reason you will need to contact the office at 313.827.6150 then they will connect you to my classroom.   I’m still in the process of trying to get my direct number back.  I cannot always answer the phone as we get busy in the classrooms and sometimes we are not in our classroom.  If you leave a message I will do my best to get back to you on my lunch.

Please remember to bring your library books back and your pillow/blanket back every Monday!
