DECEMBER SNACK: Zoey Hauer
Well this is our last week of school before our Winter/Holiday Break. Our last day of school is Friday December 21, 2018 and school will resume Monday January 7, 2019. I want to wish everyone and your families a wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year!
This Friday December 21, 2018 we will be having a small Holiday Celebration. I will be sending home a note tomorrow about our party. Also, on this day we will be having the PBIS behavior reward in the afternoon, we will be playing Holiday Bingo.
Please NO SHOW AND TELL on Friday. Our day will be too busy to be able to share with all our friends. We will resume this activity in January after our break.
This week we are learning about the letter and sound Bb, Bennie Bear. We are also learning the new sight word “like”. We took home in our book bag a new book today called Bounce Bounce Bounce. Please practice reading it and also practice the letters and sounds. After the Holiday I will be reassessing some skills and hopefully more friends will be able to put their number in the hallway on our WIG (Widely Important Goal) board.
Last week I completed a Math assessment and was pleasantly surprised how well we did and what a difference in their knowledge from September. Thank you for supporting their learning at home and school.
This week we have been busy making Holiday crafts, discussing Mystery Science lessons and learning about different types of weather. We are continuing practicing counting by 1’s, 10’s, 5’s, and 2’s. In Math we have exploring shapes and their attributes. We have also learned a poem about Santa and have read many stories. We also have learned an action poem with Gingerbread Man. We are having lots of FUN and keeping busy!
LEADER IN ME NEWS: This week your child has brought home an Act of Kindness activity sheet from the Student Lighthouse team. Please try to find some time to work with your child in completing each task. Please keep the paper in their folder and after the week is done it will be placed in their Leadership Binder.
Also, we are still collecting pop can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. We have a container in our classroom to collect the tabs and then we will deposit them in the school wide container. Also, we are collecting new items for cats and dogs for the Dearborn Animal Shelter.
This month we are learning more about Habit 3: Put first things First.
Have a Great week,
