We are counting down the days until the first day of WINTER! Your children brought home a model to show how the Earth rotates around the sun, and tilts. Be sure to have them show you how it works.
This week we will be discussing signs of winter and learning about how shadows move over time.
We are looking forward to a Crafting Hour on Wednesday, a walk to the Food Pantry on Thursday, and our Holiday Breakfast on Friday morning.
If you have not done so already, please send in the Permission Slip. If you cannot locate it, please simply write a note indicating that your child has permission to walk to the Food Pantry on Thursday. Thanks!
This week there will be NO HOMEWORK. This includes spelling, reading, and math work. We are in an Assessment and Review week for both Reading and Mathematics.
I hope you found the link to our Family Letters on the Wonders Reading site. This week and over vacation would be an excellent time to explore the digital component of our math and reading programs. The kids love the online math and reading games, and all of the stories that we have read in our reading program can be accessed from this site.
Last week, we created our very own Elves on the Shelves! They even sip hot Chocolate with CH digraph marshmallows. Your kids love these so much, and they really didn't want to keep them in the classroom for too long. We put a special date on the calendar for when they could bring them home! Tomorrow is the BIG DAY!
Snow clothes was a NEW challenge this week, and they did GREAT! They are so very proud of themselves! I've heard things like..."Wow, I got my snowpant over my boot all by myself.", "And, look Mrs. Veilleux., (insert any name here), was able to get that done super quick..." They are really proud of their independence and proud of each other!
Families, thank you so very much for the GIFT of your children. Each day, they show how very much they are growing as learners in all areas...socially and academically.
I am looking forward to a great week!
