Wednesday December 9, 2015
Good afternoon, parents.
The students and teachers are very excited for tonight’s Christmas concert! A few reminders…students are to arrive to school for 6:40 in their Christmas outfits and come directly to our classroom.
Hot chocolate and apple cider will be available for a donation to Choices Youth Shelter.  Also, please bring in some items for our food bank drive (either this evening or sometime before the Christmas break).
We had another busy day!
After our calendar activities, students worked on phonics while I met with each reading group.  The Kit Kats reviewed and worked on “A Little Princess” chapter 14 questions and the Jelly Beans reviewed and worked on questions for the first half of “Merry Christmas, Amelia Bedelia”.
After snack, and stories of Elf on the Shelf antics, the students went out for recess.  When they came in, I read aloud “Oh What a Christmas!” and then students worked on their rough drafts of their Santa letters.
After lunch and recess, students had French with Mme.  Be sure to check her blog for program details.

Following last recess, students worked on penguin math (graphing, addition and subtraction).
