Gearing up for Christmas!!!


I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families! I know I did. There is just so much to be thankful for. It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving has come & gone and now we are preparing for Christmas!!! How many of you hit up the Black Friday sales?!? Believe it or not, that is how I get in the Christmas spirit. I was out at Target at 6:00 pm waiting for a midnight opening. Can you say "cr-a-z-y!" I loved every minute of it though!
Enough of my rambling... here is what is in store this week:
Theme: Kids Around the World
Story of the Week: Kids Can Help
Spelling Pattern: S blends
Math: Addition and Subtraction to 18; fact families
Science: Earth's Surface & Water
Social Studies: Holidays Around the World unit

Don't forget to turn in your monthly Book-it-Forms. The goal for each month is for your child to read 10 books. Once they fill out the titles on their forms, they get a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut for FREE!! You can't beat free & it is a great way to motivate them.

Not much to report this week: A heads up that parents will be invited in on Tuesday December 14th at 9:00 am to watch a class play and to make a gingerbread house with your child. I will be sending home further information this week. We hope you can join us!

That's about all for now! I will keep you posted of events that are forthcoming in the near future.
Happy Holidays!!
