Ollie the Elf
Ollie the Elf came to visit in 4K. He is here to watch the children learn and make sure they are being good workers and listeners. Ask your child if they can remember the places that Ollie was hiding. We received a note and it said Ollie will be in 4K until December 23rd, which is our last day of 4K before Christmas break.
All the children decorated a gingerbread man in 4K. The children did a wonderful job describing their ornaments. Thanks for taking the family time to decorate it! Each one is special and unique!
We talked about decorating trees and who had what kind of tree. Deciding whether a tree is "real" or "artificial" was tricky...take a look and see if your child's answer was correct.
Ollie the Elf
- Square One art products will be coming home Monday (14th) with your child.
- December 16th will be Vision Screening.
- The elementary winter concert is Thursday, December 17th. We are not part of the concert, but will attend to watch.
- Remember to send report card envelopes back to school. The actually report card is your copy to keep.
- We will color and write on paper taped to our tables to strengthen our shoulder muscles for writing. Writing/drawing on an easel or paper taped to a wall is also something your child should practice.
- Working with a partner is a great skill for all children. We will practice writing the letter Jj on each others backs with our fingers. Try this at home with your child... one person is the paper and one person is the pencil. Ask them to explain how we do this in 4K and see if they can teach you.
- We will be reading There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bell by: Lucille Colandro. I will be pointing out that words rhyme in the story. Continue exposing your child to rhyming words. It is a skill on the report card and Pals assessment.
