Mrs. Gantt's Class

Week of December 1, 2014

What's Been Happening in our class

I can't believe we are almost to Christmas break. We only have three weeks and Christmas will be here.


This week we are talking about Winter Holidays. We will talk about Hanukah, Christmas and Kwanza. We would love to hear any special celebrations/traditions that you and your family have during the Christmas season.


We are also working on our Christmas program. Once we have the date and time I will send out an email. We are also planning a Christmas party so stay tuned!


Social Skills: We continue working very hard to be kind to our friends and use kind words and actions.

Letter of the Week

We are working on letter "J" this week and will move on to letter "K" next week. The final week of school before Christmas break we will review letter A-K. I am sending home letter "J" bags to be returned on Thursday, December 4th.

Coming Soon....

  • We are going to work very hard to learn the words to the Pledge of Allegiance. I will also be sending home a piece of paper that I would like for you and your student to create a "Family Flag" on and return. We will then combine the "Family Flags" into one "Class Flag." Our district theme this year is "United We Stand." so we will discuss how each of us stand for our family, for our community and for our country and what it means to be an American. I will be sending home the paper to create your family flag home after the new year.


  • Our Christmas Program/Circle of Friends Celebration will be on Thursday, December 18th at 9:00 in the cafeteria. Hope you can all make it.
