‘‘Tis The Season

Dear Winter Wonderland families,

With the chill in the air and our campus looking so festive the children are getting exciting just listening to the sound of the bells. We are looking forward to filling the next few weeks with activities and festivities in celebration of Christmas and Kwanza.

This week, the highlight of the holidays are upon us.
Our study of numbers continue as we transition from nine to ten. The children will continue to identify and recognize objects in groups of ten during circle time. We will continue to use the white board this week to strengthen their pencil grip and by writing the number ten. Finally, we will be adding to our number book this week by painting our ten fingers. Your support at home is crucial to our success in the classroom. Please be creative and help your children practice counting at home. Thanks for the support!
