Krisak's Kindergarten

Weekly Newsletter

Dec. 5, 2014

This week our theme was centered around Peace, Love and Joy! We read stories together, created projects, wrote about it and we are memorizing a poem which your child will act out for you next week. It is very special to the children and I'm sure you will agree that the meaning behind it is truly touching. In addition, we are including this into our holiday learning. We are sharing our traditions and learning about how others celebrate at this time of the year. We know now that "lights, family and togetherness" are a common part of all the celebrations so far.

Ask your child to retell the story "The Mitten Tree." We read that story today and it is a heartwarming story. After the story we talked about ways that we could help others. Hence, we are collecting new hats, mittens, gloves for needy children. I will collect them and deliver them just before Christmas. Until then, we will hang them on or very own Mitten Tree.

I hope that you enjoyed Thanksgiving with your loved ones. I enjoyed our conferences together giving us the chance to communicate about your children. I look forward to the next few weeks when we will do so many wonderful things together!
