Dec. 6, 2019 Newsletter

A little guy dressed in red made his appearance in our classroom to watch over the boys and girls. He flies back every night to give Santa his daily report on who was using their good manners. In case you haven’t guessed who it is –it’s “The Elf on the Shelf”! The class named him “Sassy” and the children have fun finding him because he is in a different spot everyday. The book and elf doll has become a well-loved tradition in our classroom as well as in many homes. Did you know the authors, Carol Aebersold and Chanda Bell (mother and daughter) live right here in Marietta?

We had Sassy help us to make a craft so we can count the days until Christmas. Just move the elf’s nose everyday until you get to Dec. 25th. Speaking of which, we will have our Winter Party on Friday, December 20. Can’t wait!! The last day of school before we break Friday, Dec. 20. Remember, everyone goes home at 12:45 since there is no afternoon Tree House that day.

We focused on the number 9 this past week. The class had some cutting practice as they cut out 9 road signs for their counting book. In Investigator Club, we counted and counted and counted some more—— making sure to touch each picture while counting!

Happy Birthday to Miss Eva Kuznar who turns 4 tomorrow!

We will continue next week with holiday activities and crafts and will have fun with The Gingerbread Man. Let’s not forget the number 10. We are also working on a special gift for mom and dad.

Thanks to Krish’s mom, Avani Thakkar, for reading to the class.

Have a nice week ahead.
Mrs. Roussarie & Mrs. Alger
