Our Class News
December 18, 2014
We've had a several kids out with fever, sick to stomach and/or the flu just FYI.
This week we finished our Christmas around the World travels. Ask your child to tell you about all the things in their "suitcase." They really enjoyed these activities.
We continued to learn about addition and subtraction. In language we worked on retelling stories including important events, characters & setting.
We worked on adjectives in writing when we described Rudolph. We also worked on lists and letter writing.
Have a wonderful, relaxing break with your family. See you next year!
