I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. It has been nice to relax before we get into the busy Christmas season. We will be learning a lot during the month of December. We will continue to work with letters, sounds and words. In math, we will be making a lot of graphs. During the month, we will also be learning about Christmas celebrations around the world. This is lots of fun for the children. You may want to pull out a world map, so your child can show you the places we learn about. Watch for the weekly newsletter to find out things we need this month to help with our activities.

Our school is having "recycle a book" on Monday, Nov. 15. Your child may bring up to 10 books to trade or swap. We are also having the BOOK FAIR in the Library. The BOOK FAIR will last until next Friday, Nov. 19. If you want your child to buy books, please send the money in an envelope labeled BOOK FAIR. There will also be FAMILY NIGHT for the BOOK FAIR on Tuesday, Nov. 16, from 3pm-7pm.

Good afternoon! We have been very busy at school learning letters and sounds. We have also been learning to speed read our ABCs in order and out of order. You can practice this at home by writing letters(upper and lowercase), out of order for your child to practice. You can even use a timer to see how many they can say in one minute and see if they can improve their time. The children really enjoy beating their times. I will be posting pictures from the field trip soon, watch for them.
