December Kindergarten News

Division 25, Mrs. Villavicencio

A Busy Month....

Wow! December is here and the holiday season festivities have begun! We have been very busy practicing for our Christmas concert. Thank you for sending in mittens, gloves and scarves. If you haven’t sent them in yet, please do tomorrow, Dec. 2.

When we are not practicing for the concert, we have been busy reading and comparing books about The Gingerbread Man and his friends, and doing various Gingerbread Man alphabet and number themed activities.

We have begun learning “Popcorn Words”. These are words that “pop up” all the time in our reading. You might notice your child has started to point some of these words out to you. So far we have learned: a, can, I, is, in, it, see, the, to, me, and go.

Christmas Concert Information: Students will need to be at school by 6:00pm tomorrow night (Dec. 2) to be ready for our 6:30 show. Please meet at our classroom. If the meeting place changes, there will be a note on the Modular Door. The show is about 30 minutes long, so you can pick up your child soon after 7pm from the classroom. Tickets will be available at the door. If you have not yet bought a ticket you can come to the 1pm show. Tickets are $3, first come first served.

I hope you have all been able to check out your child’s progress on Freshgrade. I will be adding some more posts in the near future. If you have any questions about your child’s learning, please feel free to contact me.

December is a very busy month, so please mark your calendars with all the special dates below.

Your partner in Learning,

Mrs Villavicencio
