  • December 2014

    Can you believe it is already December and we are approaching the end of the second quarter?  Our students had a busy November learning new skills, enjoying a music performances by Janie Next Door, who played the accordion, sang songs and had the kids marching to the music. 

    December promises to be filled with new learning opportunities for our students.  Right before the Thanksgiving break, they read the book, The Elf on the Shelf.  Every day, starting December 1st, until the winter break, they will search for Elfie (aptly named by the students) and do a daily writing activity related to their journey to discover where Elfie is hiding.  This activity is a wonderful way for the students to engage in creative writing.

    Please mark your calendars for our Scholastic Book Fair the week of December 8th and our annual Winter Fest Family Night on December 9th from 6:00pm – 7:30 pm.  There will be fun activities for parents and students to enjoy together.  Santa will stop by, for a visit, so if you would like to take a picture of Santa and your child, be sure to bring your camera.

    Don’t forget the Success by 6 story time on December 4th and the Parents as Teachers story time on December 18th.   Ms. Fonda and the parent educators have great stories and activities planned.

    December is such a busy time for everyone that we sometimes overlook our normal daily routines.    For our young students being consistent and sticking to daily routines such as bedtime and mealtime help them know what to expect.    If you are going to make a change, prepare them ahead of time so they are not caught off guard.  Talk about the changes that are going to take place.  Children are happier and feel more secure when they know what’s coming next.
