This Week (Dec. 11-15):

Our theme in Reading this week was where do different animals make their homes.

We focused on the letter Bb and sight words “are” and “now”.

Thank you to everyone who has been working on sight words with their child.  Your child should have mastered the red list by now.  If they haven’t, please make sure you are practicing it with them daily.  Thank you!

In Math, we continued subtraction by solving subtraction word problems and completing equations.  At center time, we did some snowball bowling to solve subtraction equations.

Our Religion focus this week was Advent and Christmas.  We lit our second candles on our Advent wreaths, and some of the children were able to put an ornament on our “Good Deeds” tree.  

We had our Christmas performance on Thursday.  Thank you to Mrs. Fletcher, our music teacher, who taught us all the songs!

Our theme, in Reading, will be what can we see in the sky.

This Week (Nov. 27-Dec.1):

Our theme in Reading this week was what do animals do when the weather changes.  The children loved the stories we read this week.  During journal time, after listening to the story snow, the children had to write about what one animal did (from the story) to prepare for the snow.  The children impressed me with their writing skills this week! They are getting better at writing independently!

Thank you to everyone who already practiced their child’s sight words with them.  If they are having difficulty with the first, red list, please practice it with them every day.  We are also working on reading the ten, basic color words.  

In Math, we completed our study of addition! The children will be bringing home their assessment next week.  Please go over any missed items with your child.  Thank you!

Our Religion focus this week was Advent and The Holy Family.  We learned that Jesus was a child and did many things all children do, Jesus is the Son of God, and discussed ways family members care for one another.

Thank you to everyone who already contributed to our Advent Family, Hannah’s Socks! Contributions can be made until Friday, December 15th.

A few dress code reminders: Shirts worn under a uniform shirt must be solid white.  Leggings must be solid black or navy.  The navy ¼ zip sweatshirt, embroidered with the school crest, is the only thing that can be worn indoors, over a uniform shirt.  Sweaters are not permitted.  Belts must be worn if your child is wearing pants.  Thank you!!

December 6th is the Feast of Saint Nicholas.  Children are encouraged to set a pair of their shoes out on Tuesday evening, so Saint Nicholas can leave them a treat.
