REPORT CARDS GO HOME TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29.
**Upcoming in the classroom** December 12-20, we will have the “7 Days Before Winter Break” themed activities. Each day will be a different theme of winter symbols, traditions, and countries that celebrate holidays at this time of year. We will unwrap the special gift each day to see what the next day will bring. I will DoJo you each day to let you know. I will also write it on the calendar for those of you who do not have DoJo. This will be a fun and exciting time of learning and exploring with our fabulous firsties!
The only events that might require volunteers is Tuesday, December 20. That will be Gingerbread Houses and Polar Express day (SHHHH! don’t tell the kiddos!)
Reading: We will be reading stories on sequence and take a comprehension test on Friday. We will be taking our local reading benchmark Wednesday, December 2. A new homework menu is in the red folder.
