Newsletter #12

November 23rd Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Greetings Everyone.
This week was a busy one!

On Monday we continued working on our printing practice, and had fun playing games in the gym. There was no library today due to the book fair being set up in that space. We also started a habitat mural and played squirrel games in the forest. Monday was also school photo retakes.

Tuesday our class had a chance to look at all the lovely books at the book fair. Many of the children copied the titles of the books onto a wish list to bring home. We focused on sorting life cycles in our oral language groups. Tuesday was our first day of the Roots of Empathy program. You were all sent home a newsletter outlining the program and a consent form. Thanks to those who have returned the consent form. If you have any questions about the program, don’t hesitate to ask. We look forward to meeting baby Max next week!

Wednesday was a busy day. Some of the children purchased books from the book fair, we continued learning about measurement, we practiced our song for the Christmas concert, made owl puppets and played an owl game outside.

On Thursday the class welcomed Janet Hoag in to help do some math assessments with the class. We also had our Whole School Meeting, went to Music and explored nature.

The lyrics to “Santa Bring Me Snow” were sent home on Thursday. If you find time to help go over the words with your child it would be appreciated. Here is a link to the song if you would like to hear it:
