Christmas Party

So, I’m guessing that some of you are wondering what we are going to do for our Christmas partywell I THOUGHT I was going to send home notes Monday to explain everything, but looks like that will not be happening. So, here’s the deal- we are going to draw items from our classroom wish list (just basic items that are needed to keep our fun crafts and everyday activities going). You and your child will wrap that gift in ONE package and label it with your child’s name. Then, on Monday for the Christmas party (weather permitting of course) your child will open it in front of the class and donate it for all of us to use. We did this last year and it worked BEAUTIFULLY! The kids were so thankful and enjoyed donating these awesome gifts for us to use. I have tried to get the gifts to be under 10.00, but sometimes it is hard considering some of the items are little larger than others. So, if you would like to buy more than what you are given- please notify me. I’ll give you another item off our list. Again, I appreciate all that you do for us!!

Snow Snow! Beautiful snow!


I know that there may be snow, but I am hoping that my friends are at home reading!! I do not know when we’ll return back to school because it looks like there is more snow on the way! However, when we return we will get busy and finish all the fun things that were planned on the calendar. I look forward to seeing you. Since this week is a short week, I am going to review our spelling week and have the test on Monday (next week). Hopefully this will give us more time for successful practice!

Pajama Day

Don’t forget!

We all need to wear pajamas on Wednesday for our production of Twas the Night before Christmas for the school. We will also be having a special snack and watching The Flight before Christmas!



This past week we talked about penguins! Boy did the kids enjoy this. We learned all about what they eat, their body parts, how they find their mates and penguins babies! Most importantly, we found out how penguins stay warm in the winter. Check out the pictures of all the kids (on the pictures page) but here are a few!


Chistmas Times a' Comin'

First off, let me apologize because of far behind I am on blogging. SORRY! First off my camera broke (no worries, I have pictures, I just need to figure out how to upload them from my phone). Anyway- we have been VERY busy. I am just going to upload some cut pictures of the things that we did for Thanksgiving and start fresh next week.
