December to Remember

with Ms. Burleson's Buddies

Donation Gift Bags

Clinkscale Kindergarten is getting in the giving spirit. Instead of doing gift exchange between the students, our class will be filling 10 gift bags to donate to a local homeless shelter. We will be collecting items that are much needed such as toothbrushes, combs, chap-stick, small first aid kits, gloves, winter hats, and non-perishable snacks such as granola bars (additional ideas are listed on the back). Please purchase 10 of the same new item, and send them in a bag with your child’s name. They will place one of each item in each bags that I have provided for our class. We will be delivering the bags on Thursday, Dec. 17th so please send the items no later than Wednesday, December 16th. I hope this will help our children experience the joy of giving this holiday season.

Who-Ville Day!

We will be celebrating a very "Grinchy" Christmas this Friday by watching The Grinch Who Stole Christmas cartoon. Your children are also allowed to to wear their most festive Who-ville clothing this Friday as well. Please don't go out and buy anything (for ideas, just google Whoville costumes)!

I have completed reading tests on everyone during the last few weeks, and I'm so excited at how far our they have all come! Please make sure that your child is reading from their book bags each evening for about 10-15 minutes. I have been using the little paper readers to help the class get used to be responsible for the bags. We will start formal guided reading as soon as we get back from Christmas break!
