Welcome to the second week of December. Thank you so much for your generous donations to the Stonegate baskets. Two families will have a wonderful start to 2013 with their gift baskets. A reminder that donations will be accepted until Monday. December 10. Thanks again for helping to support this wonderful project.
I have individually introduced the numerals from 1-10 this fall. All the formation rhymes are found on the right side of the blog. When your child is making numbers at home, please encourage him/her to start at the top and follow the rhyme. This makes the numerals easier to make and limits numeral reversals. The monthly calendars will help to show where your child may need practise. A fun way to practise numerals is using an old/unwanted calendar and practise the numerals in the boxes, following the example provided.
LKS is having a Food Drive. Non-perishable food items will be collected in the front hall until Wednesday, December 19 for Second Harvest. All the food collected will be provided to those less fortunate during the holiday season. Thanks in advance for helping others.
A reminder of our Sharing Assembly on Monday, December 17. The Kindergarten classes will be sharing songs of the season and the teachers will be handing out the monthly certificates. The assemblies will be in the lunch room at 9:00 am and 12:40pm and everyone is invited. To help us celebrate, each child should wear a Santa hat.
Also, our classroom holiday party is Tuesday, December 18. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered. Please check your child's monthly calendar from the Grade Parents to see if you are assisting at the party or sending food/drinks. Thanks in advance to all our volunteers. I couldn't do it without you.
