Week of 12-10-18
I hope this message finds you warm and cozy with your families! We are just plugging away at our learning this month and I can’t believe December is already here! Your darlings are just growing so much in their learning and I am ever so proud of their progress 🙂 I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Lilly’s mom for helping prepare the homework packet! It’s a big stress relief to know the homework is pulled out of the book, ready to go home on Monday’s. With the last two weeks to go before our winter break, here is what you need to know this week as well as important information before the break! If their are any changes of modifications to the week, I’ll be sure to write them as soon as possible!

Homework: This week your child will receive lessons 1-5 in Module 2 about shapes as well as a new math game to play in their games binder. Make sure they are in sheet protectors before writing on them to ensure that your child can play them over and over again this year!
*Library check out: Library check out is back! We had 100% return yesterday (for the students that were at school)! Thank you for all your help. Way to go kindergarten!
*Reading Packs: Make sure your child is spending about 10-15 minutes a night on the books, letters/words you find in there. This will help your child SO much reviewing their personal bags each night! Those students who had books sent home last week, make sure they are in there next week because they will be switched for one to two more this week!
