December Newsletter

Lit. Corner

Our class read fun books throughout December. I encourage families to invest in the following titles for your child's home library, so he or she can enjoy the stories again:

Alphabet Soup

The students are continuing to learn that every letter of the alphabet has its own shape and sound. November ended with studying (Vv). December began studying (Cc).The students revisited (Bb) and reviewed the Alphabet song this month.

Learning Centers

The students follow personal schedules in order to attend learning centers. Below are pictures from various learning centers.

A Word from Mrs. Stephie

Hello Speech Families and welcome holiday break! Early in December, we talked about all things gingerbread. We visited with gingerbread people of all shapes and sizes, including gingerbread boys, girls, and houses. We all know gingerbread cookies like to run as as fast as they can, so speech and language activities focused on different places and locations they like to visit as well actions and activities they participate in. We matched gingerbread people to same size houses and cookie sheets, sorted and categorized, labeled and identified different actions and activities, used visual supports to help create and decorate a large gingerbread man, made felt board gingerbread men, and placed gingerbread people all around a gingerbread village. Have fun making and decorating gingerbread cookies at home with your children. Cooking and baking activities allow for multiple opportunities to be creative, follow directions, sequence, expand vocabulary, and more importantly, spend time together. Have fun and enjoy! Don't forget to check your child's daily folder for my weekly speech sheet for additional information.

Pajama Day

Students had an amazing Pajama Day! They made gifts for a family member and decorated the gift bag. Your learners listened to holiday music as they rotated through the learning centers. Watching the hot air popcorn machine spill out fresh popcorn was exciting. We ended our celebration with a book exchange. Mrs. Ronny, Mrs. Stephie, Mrs. Chris, Mrs. Suzanne and I would like to thank all the students and families for the thoughtful gifts. Thank you for your generosity. Please have a memorable holiday and a safe winter break!
