There is no sharing for the month of December!
We are beginning to do more writing in class and are allowing the children to write at their developmental level. Some children are writing sentences, others need highlighter to trace and still a few need to dictate their sentences. Please allow your children to do as much as they can independently, knowing that everything does not have to be perfect spelling, but do remind children to print as neatly as possible and to pring using the guide-lines provided. It is important for the children to know that they can challenge themselves. Many depend on a lot of adult help and are hesitant to try for fear of making a mistake. We learn through our mistakes and it is important to allow children to be independent.
This week we will comlete our Number 10 books and finish our monthly assessment. We will work in our December math journal and use some of our Handwriting Without Tears math materials to explore shapes, fine motor skills and counting.
This week in Science we will be continuing our exploration of the 5 Senses with our Science teacher, Mrs. Benor.
In P.E. Coach Sean has been teaching the children new games and practicing psychomotor skills. Remember to wear tennis shoes to school!
We are so grateful to our Art Trek teachers for providing creative and stimulating lessons for the children bi-weekly. The children love it! We have been having in-class lessons also, on alternating weeks. December is a great month for craft projects in Room K!
In addition to our regular enrichment schedule, this week we will be practicing our holiday program songs. Remember to turn in the "packages" by this Friday (the sooner the better).
We are getting low on playdough. If anyone is able to contribute that would be so helpful..

Thank you all for your help and support in Room K!
