We had a busy week of concert practice and making Christmas crafts. We graphed M&M’s, made a reindeer hand print picture, and learned the letter Qq. In Second Step we learn about what to do when we’re having strong feelings. Students were taught to put their hands on their belly and say Stop! Then we practiced taking belly breaths to calm ourselves down. Maybe you’ll catch them doing this at home :)
Next week will be another exciting week. We will be singing for the other students in the school on Tuesday. Our concert is on Wednesday at 10am in the cafeteria. Following the concert, we will be decorating gingerbread houses in the classroom. Please remember to send in a dozen cookies or other desserts to be shared after the concert.
On Thursday we will be having our Polar Express Day. Please send your child to school in Pajamas. You can pack slippers as well. We will be watching the movie, and doing a couple other related activities. We will not have a new letter of the week next week.
It’s hard to believe we only have one week left before Christmas break.
I hope everyone has a great weekend,
