We hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas program! It was fun to see the children in their nice outfits. If anyone would like to bring in a picture of the class we would greatly appreciate it, Ms. Kim and Ms. Nicole were a little busy and didn't get any photos! Also, thank you to everyone who came in to be with their child for "Cookies with Santa".
Last week in art class we learned about the American sculptor Alexander Calder and made our own mobiles. We also made bead ornaments for the entryway Christmas tree, we'll be sure they go home with you before Christmas! We also talked about letter "N".
This week we will be learning about letter "R" so please remember to bring in your words.
Finally, we would like to get an idea of how many children will be here during the last two weeks of December so we can plan staffing. We will be open on Monday and Tuesday December 22 and 23, closed the 24, 25 and 26. We reopen Monday December 29 and Tuesday December 30, then closed until Monday January 5th. Enjoy time with your family!

Last week was a short week, but we were very busy! In music class we began practicing our songs for the Christmas program, and in art class we learned about the artist Wasilly Kandinski and how his paintings were inspired by music. We learned about letter "Y": glued collages of yellow items, made yogurt parfaits and smelled some mystery cooking ingrediets that were either "yum" or "yuck"!
