December

We are learning about sorting, money, and winter.

Sorting

The students will be introduced to sorting. We will read books to explain what sorting is. We will discuss that sorting is putting things into groups based on common properties (color, shape, size, etc.). Together we will work through some examples of sorting.

Money

We will learn about different coins (quarter, dime, nickle, penny). The students will discuss why we have money. We will learn that we can't have everything we want and there are certain things that we need.

Winter

We will read books to learn about things that happen in winter. We will discuss changes in weather, animals, and people.
