1st week in December
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... Our room is taking shape with all of our decorations. Don't forget to complete your Holiday Family Banner to hand in this week. We just finished ours and here is the picture. We had a grand time talking about our favorite part of the holidays. It is so cute to hear from the little people what they find fun and exciting. I can't wait for each student to share on Wednesday. We had our pictures with Santa, thanks to FFEA. If you didn't get a chance to have your photo, they will still take pictures with Santa the 11th and 12th this week. We have so many fun activities to come so be on the look out for the updates and invitations to come.
By the way, your children are turning into pretty proficent "texters". We used the ActivExpressions to text in the "s" blend to words we learned this week (snake, slide, skate). We also took a practice math assessment using the Expressions. They did a fabulous job showing me what they know about addition and subtraction so far this year. That same afternoon we took the district math assessment and the class average was 87%! WOW we are so smart!
