December News!
Tentative Happenings in our Class

Week of January 3 - 7
Happy New Year!!!  This week we will have a Horn Blowing Celebration as we countdown and welcome in the year 2022.  Also, this week we will celebrate Epiphany, the visit of the Three Kings to Baby Jesus.  We will learn about the special gifts the Three Kings brought to Baby Jesus.  We will have the opportunity to travel to “Bethlehem”, the upstairs chapel, as we celebrate Epiphany.  Our letter for this week is the letter “L”.

Week of January 10 – 14
            This week we will be talking about winter, and all of the changes this season brings.  We will be learning about Birds, which enjoy the cold winter weather such as the red Cardinal. Our letter this week will be the letter “M”. We will also engage in some winter “estimating” math games.   Also, we will be learning about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the importance of peace and equality for all people.
           
Week of January 17 – 21

No school on Monday, January 17

We will begin learning about Polar Animals.  We will talk about those animals that love the cold, icy climate like penguins, polar bears and the snowy owl. Watch for some of our “cool” winter art projects. Our letter for this week is the letter “N”.

Week of January 24- 28
This week we will be discussing and learning about bears and other animals, which hibernate “zzzz” in the winter.  Our letter this week will be the letter “O”.

 

Miss Beth’s Final Note
We will continue working our way through the alphabet, as well as continue learning to recognize, write, and understand the value of numbers.  In addition to our weekly themes, we will be working on mastering the writing of our first names.  We will focus more on proper pencil grip and ways to strengthen our fine motor skills, for example, coloring, cutting, lacing, and manipulating play dough.  We will also be learning to understand positional words such as on, above, beside, and below

Finally, progress reports will be sent home by the end of January, please review, sign and return them to the school.  If you would like to discuss your child’s report,  I will be happy to arrange a time for a phone call or face time meeting
           
                                    Sincerely,

                                    Miss Beth & Miss Joanne
