Dear Parents,
December and winter weather are upon us! Even with cooler weather, we do still go outside to play. Please dress your child and send appropriate hats and mittens for the weather. (We will not play in the snow.)
This month, we have been reading stories about the winter season along with some classics such as The Gingerbread Man. Students will have the opportunity to act out some of the stories we read. We continue practicing letter formation, focusing on lowercase letters. When writing, we talk about how our pictures match our words. In connection with our writing, the class has entered the Newspapers in Education contest sponsored by Lancaster Newspapers. The students drew pictures to illustrate headlines.
In math, we have been focusing on teen numbers. We have been reading, writing, and building sets with teens. Be sure to ask your child what every teen number begins with!
We were sad to say goodbye to Mr. Lugo. We used our writing skills to make a book to help him remember his time with us. He will be visiting us when he can. We wish him much success!
