News for the week of December 10th

Holiday/ Giving Theme

This week we will introduce a "Holiday/ Giving" Theme! We will be working hard at finishing up a special gift that will be sent home during winter break. I hope the gingerbread houses made it home in one piece last week. The students had a blast making them. I also hope each student was able to retell the story of the The Napping House to someone at home using the pictures sent home last Friday! See below for some class pictures from last week.

Gingerbread Exchange

The Gingerbread Exchange has been a huge success! Each day we are still receiving Gingerbread Men from Pre-K classes all over the country. We take the time each day to read the note and plot on our map where the Gingerbread Man came from. Below is an example of what our Gingerbread Exchange maps look like. More pictures of our maps to come in next week's newsletter.

Jolly Phonics

Our Jolly Phonics letter of the week is "R. The action for the letter "R" sound is to pretend to be a puppy pulling a rag, with clenched and shaking head say rrrrrr. Again use this fun video below to learn the new letter "R" sound song and review past songs we have learned.

*Please mark your calendars for a special parent/child craft night in February. The A.M. class craft night will take place on Monday, February 11th from 6:00- 7:00pm. The P.M. class craft night will be held on Tuesday, February 12th from 6:00-7:00pm.
