December class news 2017

Jesus-birth-celebration-cute-graphicaaa December is upon us and we will begin the beautiful season of Advent, leading us toward the ultimate celebration of Christmas!  As we light each candle of the Advent wreath, we remember Jesus as the light of the world, and we mark the approaching date of His birth.  We have a gift hanging on our classroom door which will be covered with happy faces.  These happy faces represent the good deeds and acts of kindness done by the children and offered as gifts for baby Jesus's birthday.  The children have already come up with some great ideas of things that they plan to do over the course of the coming weeks.

Graphs and fractions will be covered this month along with reviewing numbers beyond ten.  We already keep a daily weather graph which serves as a visual recording for the children to use in making comparisons.  They can't wait to color in a red box which indicates a snowy day!  Over the last month we have been working on number combinations using unifix cubes.  This will be helpful later on when we cover basic operations.

Our journal writing is moving along quite nicely as we apply our high frequency words to our sentences.  The children are getting good at this and really do look forward to this activity.

This month is short and busy, so please be sure to read your Wednesday news packet to review special events and dates.  Here are a few to keep in mind:

Dec. 13  Buddy Fieldtrip to tree farm!  Outdoor event so dress warm.

Dec. 15  K-6 Fieldtrip to see The Star movie  Regular uniform worn - No aftercare
