Week 16

Sneak Peek of the Week

Week 16: December 12th-December 16th

Dear Families,

I hope you are enjoying this wintery December weather!  


Literacy Lab/Project Lab

Over the last week students have compared and contrasted different variations of the classic story, The Gingerbread Man.  Students discussed similarities and differences among the stories (The Gingerbread Man, The Gingerbread Girl, The Gingerbread Boy).

On Friday (in the Project Lab), we'll make our own Gingerbread creation!  The Kindergarten teachers will supply the gingerbread for students.  

If you're able, we would appreciate the following items:



-Plastic knives

-Paper plates

Please send in any of the items above before Friday!  Thank you so much for your help in this project!


Global Minnesota-Classroom Connection

We will have our last visit from Svetlana on Wednesday afternoon.  Our final visit will focus on celebrations, festivals/holidays, music and dance in Russia.  Svetlana will teach Kindergarten students a song and dance from Russia!


Special Notes:

-There is no school from Monday, December 19th through Monday, January 2nd.  School will resume on Tuesday, January 3rd.


I hope you have a wonderful and restful Winter break! See you in 2017!
