Goodbye November and Hello December!
I hope everyone had a great break and a Happy Thanksgiving! I am so proud of all the children and how well the Thanksgiving Feast came together! They really did do a fantastic job! And thank you, to YOU for providing the food and drinks for our feast!
With Thanksgiving behind us, we look forward to celebrating Hanukkah and Christmas. We are already decorating at our classroom with wreaths, tree’s, dreidels, menorahs and ornaments. If you or your family celebrate something else during this time, please send me an email and I would love to celebrate that as well!
We are officially in unit two for our math! We started this week with reading the math story “The Tree’s of Mrs. McGee”. The story was about a women, Mrs. McGee who found mystery seeds in her yard. When she planted the seeds, they turned into trees with different shaped leaves such as circles, squares, rectangles and squares. We will be in this unit until winter break. We will be learning all about shapes and their sizes and their sides. It should be a fun unit for the kids!
We also started a new story in our Happily Ever After Program, “Jingles, Poems, and Rhymes”. This story is actually a combination of nursery rhymes, songs and jingles. The kids enjoyed listening to the multiple stories and songs and like having a chance at coming up with their own rhyming words.
Our focus letter this week was the letter “C”. The letter bag has been making its round again, so please keep an eye for it! Next week, we will focus on the letter P!
As a reminder, please make sure to be checking the snack calendar for when your child’s snack day is. A few times this month we have had people forget it was their snack day resulting in us going into our extra snack bin. Because of this, we have had to go out and buy additional snack for the bin. Please remember to check the calendar or to email me if you misplaced it.
That is it for now! Have a great weekend and see you all Monday!
