Happy New Year! I hope that everyone enjoyed their holidays. We have been busy this week discussing the new calendar, including the new month and the new year. The children completed their January calendar and will complete the art portion on Monday. Their completed calendars will be sent home this week.
We are finishing our unit on graphing and the class completed a favourite season graph. The children are continuing to learn sight words through our daily messages and the word wall.
The children are becoming very independent dressing and undressing. Thank you for your encouragement at home. A reminder to please arrive at school for the bell. This allows the children time to get undressed and be ready on the carpet for announcements and O Canada. On rainy days and extremely cold days I will open the classroom door early. A reminder that once the back door is closed, you should be entering through the main school doors. For safety reasons, I will not be opening the back door other than at entry and dismissal.
Our next Sharing Assembly is Monday, January 21. I will be notifying the families of the award winners this week.
Wishing everyone all the best in 2013.
