WHEELS AND THINGS THAT GO!
Wheesl are everywhere, and children love every wheeled object: tricycles, bicycles, cars, trucks, wagons, trains, skates, and scooters. Wheeled toys give children mobility, ignite their imaginations, and enable them to get places more quickly. Vehicles driven by adults are fascinating for their speed and size. Chidren ride in these cars, buses, trains, and airplanes.

This study is building on children's experiences with wheels and expanding their knowledge about wheels. They are observing, gathering data and, exploring their community. A study of wheels also offers a meaningful way for children to use skills in mathematics, literacy, the arts, and technology as they learn important concepts related to physical science and social studies.
LOOK HOW BUSY WE HAVE BEEN!!

BOOKS OF THE WEEK
BLOCKS ARE SO MUCH FUN!
We will build up on our wheels and transportation unit by adding people, places, and things around our community to our study. We will match out vehicles with jobs community workers and helpers. We will discuss jobs that community workers have, what services workers provide, and what utensils workers need to get their jobs done.

TOYS FOR SMILES:
Dear ISP Families,
This holiday season, our school will again host a “Toy-o-thon”, to benefit the Fundación Amigos del Niño con Leucemia y Cancer. This event will be instead of the classic gift exchange between our students.
Fundación Amigos del Niño con Leucemia y Cancer (www.fanlyc.org) is an organization that covers the cost of cancer treatment for over 900 children all over Panama. Every December, they hold a Christmas party for these children and their families. They are in need of gifts for the children. We emphasize that the gifts must be good, since sadly, for some children this might be their last Christmas. Others have been through very hard and painful times; therefore FANLYC wants them to have a wonderful Christmas and a nice gift to remember.
We are asking for your participation by bringing an unwrapped gift appropriate for the age group assigned to your child’s grade level. If your child is a boy, send a boy gift. If your child is a girl, send a girl gift.
The gift should be in the range of $15-20.
PK3/4= 4-6 years old
We are asking that donations be sent in as soon as possible. We will be collecting donations until Wednesday, December 10, 2014.
Please help us help! We would like to build a huge “Toy Mountain” in the Elementary Office as a gift from the ISP community to these brave children. The Student Representative Council will be delivering these gifts to the FANLYC house.
You can find more information at www.fanlyc.org.pa.
FANLYC calls people who help them “Little Stars” (Estrellitas) and they have a song that goes “Come little star, like you I want to shine” So let’s all be “estrellitas”.
