News of the Week!

Hello Families!

 

The week went flying by! On Tuesday, our third LPIE art lesson focused on “texture”. The class got to do a wonderful crayon transfer lesson, which was based on pointillism art. The artists colored on sandpaper, and then the pictures were ironed onto paper! The results were magical! Thank you families for your support of LPIE! The opportunities from this amazing organization are so appreciated and needed!

 

We are coming to the end of our second unit in Reader’s Workshop. The readers practiced giving book talks this week. They read their book’s title, then gave a brief introduction before reading it to their buddy. After the buddy heard the story, they told a synopsis of the book back to the reader. The children are growing in their reading powers daily!

 

In Writer’s Workshop we continued working on revising our stories. One of the ways we revised a story this week was by having a friend listen to the story and then ask them if there was anything that did not make sense, or was there anything that they were still wondering about? The continued growth in writing is simply astonishing! 

 

In math this week, we played a holiday bump game, decorated pretend gingerbread men with “teen- sprinkles”, practiced counting in the teens, and built and decomposed numbers. 

 

We water-colored reindeer, made geometric ornaments, sang holiday songs, recited holiday poems, and finished our Holiday Song book! Look for these treasures next week!

 

The Springhill winter concert was so fun! I hope that everyone was able to attend! The children sang so beautifully, and looked adorable in their PJ’s!

 

Your child is bringing home their holiday gift to you, I hope that they all made it safely home! I hope you will cherish the heartfelt gift!

 

Have a lovely weekend, and please remember that all kindergarten children will attend school next Friday from 8:15-11:45! Our holiday party will be on Friday from 9-10, all families are invited to stop by, or help! Thanks for all the donations! - Katherine

Dear Parents,



This month's Scholastic Book Club flyers are ready for you to explore with your child. Children read more when they choose their own books, so I encourage you to look at the flyers together.

You can return the order form and payment to me, or give online ordering a try. It saves time, offers more book choices, and earns extra rewards for the classroom!

 Happy reading,

Katherine Welcomer
