looking forward to seeing you at the Christmas concert this week! Your little elf is excited to perform for you
on December 12th and 13th. The Christmas Concert is called “Elflandia”
and both shows will be at 9:15 a.m. on those dates.Families with last names starting with A-K
are invited to attend on Monday, and families with last names starting with L-Z
are Tuesday. All children will be performing on both days. Remember to bring
a non-perishable item to donate to the Fredericton Community Kitchen on concert
What we are
Literacy - This week we will introduce the next
five words of List 3 (what, so, see, not, were). Our reading strategy for the
month of December is to give a good oral retell after reading, making sure to
include the beginning, middle and end. We will also introduce the sounds “ou/ow” ( as in the words mouse/cow).
Math – We will continue to review +0/+1/+2 and introduce +3 over
the next couple of weeks (the strategy that the children have learned is to
find the greatest number and count on).
You and Your World - We will discuss the difference between
needs and wants and how media influences consumers.

would be helpful if your child had an extra change of clothes including mittens
