Holiday Excitement! December 4, 2012

Filed under: 1 Mrs. A's Daily Posts! — Bethany Arsenault @ 11:14 pm

We are all very excited for the upcoming holidays.  

We have a busy (and fun!) couple weeks ahead of us.


Phonic Soup:

We will be studying “sh” and “ch” this week.  Help your child find the “sh” and “ch” sounds in words.  We are excited to use these sounds in our sentences during writing workshop!



Writing Workshop

We have been talking about how all words have at least one vowel and how spaces are very important when writing.  Please reinforce and model these concepts at home.  I am so proud of your amazing young authors!



Past Present Future Homework

Watch for the Past, Present, Future homework that will be coming home the December 21st.  It is due Monday, Jan. 7th.  Your child will present the project to the class.  The projects will be displayed in the hallway during the month of January.  They will be returned to you by Feb. 1st.  It is a really fun project!




Snowpants, Gloves, Hats, Scarves, Boots, etc.

It’s cold outside!  Please remember to send warm clothes with your child 🙂

Please label all winter clothing when possible. – Thank you!




Afternoon Snack

We are running low on snacks for our “afternoon snack.”  The kids love: saltine crackers, Goldfish crackers, graham crackers, etc.   Thank you 🙂




We are having so much fun with numbers and shapes!

  • Writing numbers 1-20

  • identifying numbers 11-20 using flashcards

  • counting objects up to 20

  • orally counting to 30 and beyond.

  • Identifying 2d and 3d shapes


Wants and Needs Project

Students will be cutting out and sorting pictures of “needs” and “wants.”  We will watch a video about needs and wants as well.   It is a great time of year to do this kind of project in class 🙂




Humane Society Service Learning Project!

Our class is collecting donations for the Humane Society of Livingston County.  We also made a commercial and posters to advertise our service learning project.  The Humane Society will visit us the last week before Holiday Break!   Thank you for all your continued support!  Here is a list of items that they need:
