We changed our prayer tables and the Turtles decided they wanted to act out the nativity story - so we turned dramatic play into a manger! We also had fun playing with a beautiful nativity scene donated by one of our families.
We continue to talk about healthy eating and students have been making good choices for morning snack!
We have also been doing number talks in both groups. To start talks, we have been showing students dot cards (like the sides of a dice) and asking how many dots they see and how they see them. This is a great exercise that encourages children to ask questions and use math language. One of our goals is to have children begin to recognize sets without having to count. Keep practising your counting and number recognition at home!
We've seen great progress in our penmanship skills through our name sign-in books each morning. We are encouraging the children (especially SKs) to use lowercase letters after the uppercase letter to begin their name. Keep searching for letters and practising your letter sounds!
Thanks to all families who have supported our Angel Tree Advent Project.
Please return permission forms for our museum trip ASAP. Thanks to those who are able to volunteer (just to note, unfortunately the museum cannot accommodate siblings on our trip).
Have a happy weekend!
