Tuesday, December 8th - Christmas Pantomime (this activity is for students only)
Thursday, December 10th - Exit Point for 'Changes'. Students will be asked to come to school dressed in cold weather clothes (no need to go big - a simple scarf and hat will do!) - to find that the classroom has 'changed' seasons! We will watch 'The Snowman' and have popcorn. This is a fun exit point the children always enjoy - and it fits with the upcoming holidays perfectly!
Friday, December 11th - Last day of school. Classes dismiss at 11:20 am
A Week of Nativity Plays
Around the Classroom: Looking at 'Changes' in Art
In Language Arts we recorded our findings of the color experiments in our Learning Journals and wrote about our wonderful experiences in the nativity plays. We also learned the diagraph /ue/ and worked on our Magic 100 words /big/ and /she/. Our Mathematics lessons centered around re-visiting patterns - specifically looking at patterns in our current festive surroundings. We made wonderful candy cane prints and holiday chains. We also had fun measuring our Christmas presents and counting down the days to the start of the holiday!
