KINDERFUN 12/12/16 - 12/16/16

Weekly Newsletter

Snapshot of the week:
     This week we will finally learn our last two letters -- Zz-zebra-/z/ and Qq-Queen-/qu/. We will continue focusing on building/writing CVC words and focusing on letter formation. Our theme of the week is all about gingerbread! We'll read all the gingerbread books we can, including all of the different variations! Then, we'll illustrate our favorites! We'll also have lots of gingerbread fun incorporated into math, crafts, and centers! 
     Please remember that on Tuesday we will be traveling to Riverwoods and Water Street to practice for our holiday concert. Because we will be doing the same show on Tuesday, December 20, we ask that parents do not attend the shows this Tuesday. We want to surprise you!
     Finally, all parents are invited to attend and volunteer during our gingerbread houses. We'll be needing a lot of extra hands to construct all of the houses! This will take place on Friday, December 16th from 9:00-10:20. Be ready to get messy and have fun with your kiddos!
