Hello K1 families!
As a reminder here are the important upcoming dates this month! This week we have the book fair and the school Christmas concert.
Wednesday December 12th: School Christmas concert. Students arrive at 5:30; concert begins at 6. Please stay for the whole concert and after a final song by the whole school in the courtyard you may pick up your child from our classroom.
December 10-13: The Scholastic Book is heading our way! Students, staff and families are invited to visit the school library for all the fun! Look for a Scholastic flyer in your child’s backpack for a sneak peek of some of the amazing books at this year’s fair!
Thursday December 20th: K1 Christmas Party at 1 pm. If you are safe environment compliant please join us for this celebration!
Friday December 21st: Kindergarten Nativity walk through at 11:15. Again you may join us if you are safe environment compliant.
Here is what we will be working on this week:
Reading - The theme this week is Animal Homes. We will read the stories Home For a Tiger, Home For a Bear and Turtle Splash. Our sight words this week will be "are" and "now" and our sound is /b/. We also will begin practicing identifying the middle sound in words.
Math - We will practice all that we have learned on numbers to 100 the past two weeks with some centers. The students will be assessed on this chapter at the end of the week.
Religion - We will discuss the third week of Advent and the third candle on our wreath that stands for love. We will hear about the angel visiting Joseph to tell him to not be afraid and to marry Mary still. We also will begin to make a class Jesse Tree to learn about Jesus' lineage before we celebrate His birth on Christmas Day!
As a reminder, animal reports will be due next Monday, December 17th. There is time in our homework calendar this week to work on the report and diorama. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Have a great week and see you all at the Christmas concert Wednesday night!
