At A Glance

We are so excited planning for our WInter Celebration on Friday December 18th. Our party will be from 12:30-1:30pm. We hope you can join us. Please make arrangements for childcare now for any siblings. This is a special occasion for you to spend time with your child. Coming soon will be an e-mail from Volunteer Spot for you to send in party supplies and volunteer to help with activities.

Winter Celebrations Around the World

In the English class, we will be studying how we are part of a family, neighborhood, community, and the world. We will expand on this idea as we "travel" around the globe to learn about winter celebrations. During December, we will celebrate winter holiday traditions from around the world. If you would like to share a special family tradition with the class, please let us know.We would love to taste cultural foods, make a new craft, or try new songs/dances.

We will study the following countries/cultures:

Monday (7th)– Reindeer (Fact not fiction),

Tuesday (8th)– Germany (Gingerbread),

Wednesday (9th)- Festival of Lights (Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa),

Thursday (10th)– Australia (Summertime),

Monday (14th)- St. Lucia's Day (Sweden)

Tuesday (15th)- Holland (Poetry)

Wednesday (16th)- Las Posadas (Mexico)

Thursday (17th)- Japan (New Year's cleanup)

We will also explore Christmas/winter through the use of our five senses: seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, and tasting. We will learn about our five senses in French throughout December and January. As you travel around the community, ask your child to describe decorations using his/her five senses.
