A Note From the Teacher

Dear Parents,

Wow! I can’t believe it will already be the last full week before Winter Break! The first official day of winter will be December 21!

We have had such a great week together! This week we had a wonderful time reading and comparing the various versions of The Gingerbread Man. Our favorite story was The Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Campbell Ernst.

Next week, the children will enjoy Midway’s Holiday Sing-a-Long today as well as many more exciting learning activities. PLEASE have your child bring his/her book bag each day We will be doing several activities and sending home items with your child.

When we come back from Winter Break, we will dive into the season of winter. We will also be studying polar animals.

Thank you for sharing your child with us! They are a wonderful gift! Have a wonderful and restful weekend!
