The children are loving all the different versions of the Gingerbread Man! We have been busy comparing the different versions, acting out the stories and taking about the different characters. Next week, we will continue our study by reading The Gingerbread Cowboy and The Gingerbread Pirates. We will be decorating paper Gingerbread Man, working on rhyme and using non-standard measurement to see how tall we are. We will continue to study the number five next week. Ask your children to show you all the different ways to make five with their fingers.
Thank you again for all your assistance with the new arrival and dismissal procedure. When the weather is inclimate parents can sit in the back three tables of the cafeteria and wait to be picked up by a preschool teacher.
We are trying our best to keep the students healthy by washing hands, disinfecting the room and using our cough catchers. However, we understand that students will still get sick. Please make sure that you are sending a note when your child returns so that they are not recieving unexcused absences.
Thank you so much to the parents that have sign up to bring items for our Gingerbread Man decorating. There are still some spots left. The decorating is on December 22nd at the end of the day.
Our second Parent and Child Activity will be held Friday, December 23rd in the school cafeteria from 9:15-10:30. All children (accompanied by an adult) are invited to participate at this time. There will be no regular class on December 23rd.
Please remember to help your child learn to independently put on their hat, coat, scarf, boots, snowpants at home. We want our students to be able to dress themselves as much as possible. If you can purchase mittens rather than gloves, we would much appreciate it. Mittens are much easier for kids to put on independently. If you are unable to provide a winter coat, boots, gloves or other cold weather clothing, please do not hesitate to talk to me. I help find these items to donate to your child.
Winter Break- December 26th- January 6th. School resumes January 9th.
