Happy Holidays and more

This week we talked about Hanukkah and Christmas. We will learn about Kwanza next week. This way the students are able to learn about all the holidays that are celebrated in December. We also had a nice time with the parents that came in to make a holiday craft. Students also had a holiday performance yesterday. It went so well thanks to Ms. Kim and her great program.

 Also this week in class, students worked on making a large tree map to help them look at beginning of names and end of names. Students then discussed who had the most beginning letter sounds that started the same.

Also this week after learning summer and winter vocabulary with Ms. Rebecca students worked on making a bridge map to compare different clothes with seasons and also to help them write their sea saw pattern books.
