Happy Sunday Parents!
Can you believe all this snow? As I am working on this week’s plans, I am trying to figure out how to fit it all in, especially since I am not sure when we are going back. Please know that the plans below are tentative, and can change. Also – HW has already been copied for Mon-Thur, so I will give the kids some extra rewards if they are able to get all the HW done in their packets for the week. I guess it all depends on when we are back to school. See below for our week –
Gingerbread Houses – Thanks to my room parents, a sign up genius went out asking for supplies. We are in the middle of our Fairy Tale unit and the kids will be really excited to make their own gingerbread house. We will be making them next Monday and Tuesday, both at 1:00 each day. Please remember, as my room mom posted – you have to have a volunteer form filled out if you want to come into the room just to help. Email me if you need a paper copy. Here is the site for the sign up if you have not signed up for anything yet. Please send in everything by this Friday, Dec 14th.
Holiday Party – On Wednesday, Dec 19th – I will be having a small party for the kids. The school will be showing Polar Express, we will be making a craft, and I will provide some goodies for the class. I like to make reindeer food together then eat it during the movie, as my fun treat to them. If anyone has any allergy concerns please let me know and I will send home the recipe. It has no nuts in it, so I don’t believe there should be any issues. Parents are welcome to come in.
