Happy December!


Dear Wonderful Room 4 Families,   


   We have had a busy start to the month of December!   This month we are focusing on winter holidays around the world.  Many of these holidays have similar traditions of special foods, candles, decorations, giving presents, and family time.  We also started the month with many different gingerbread stories and the students had fun creating their own gingerbread cookie!

   We continue to have lots of fun with our writing workshop!  We are diving into true stories.  Stories that really happened, whether it is a big or small story.  In reading we are working in our very own book boxes now!  Each week the students are able to "shop" for books that they would like to read.

    On Friday, December 21st we will have the Holiday Sing.  This is a special Burton Valley tradition.  The kindergarteners all wear their pajamas to school that day and all attend school from 8:15-11:45.  Our class will sing at the end of the first show.

    In planning ahead for next month ... all room 4 children will attend school as early birds (8:15-12:45) on Tuesday, January 15th so we can go on our field trip to the Lindsay Museum.


                                Thank you for sharing your children with me!

  Each month I will send home an order form for Scholastic books.  You may order books online, or bring in the order form and a check.  This is a wonderful way to build your library at home and support the class library at the same time.  When ordering online please use the code FMTZM
