Three storytellers from Third grade came to our class to share three folktales. Two of the storytellers were former students and one was Chase's brother! The stories the boys told were, a South African story-Why Do Dogs Chase Cars, a Portuguese tale-The Tortoise And The Hare and a Brazilian story-How The Beetle Got His Colors. Our class enjoyed listening and learning about the folktales and loved having the "big kids" visit us!

In honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday, we read and did several activities connected to his books. The last Dr. Seuss book we read was, Bartholomew and the Oobleck. The book is about young boy named Bartholomew, who must rescue his kingdom from a sticky substance called "Oobleck." Our class went out to Legacy's outdoor classroom (The Outback) and experimented and played with Oobleck!

Our class will celebrate our holiday cheer by watching Frosty The Snowman and eating tasty treats next Friday, December 18th.
Also, on Wednesday December 16th our class will have the opportunity to visit the ABC Holiday Shop during our lunch period. This is a easy and affordable way for students to buy gifts for family members. There will be a flyer and envelope sent home tomorrow in your child’s folder with all the details.
We have started Kindergarten winter literacy assessments! I cannot stress enough how important it is for your child to know ALL their letters and sounds, including the sounds for the digraphs- Sh, Th & Ch. Other important skills that can be practiced at home are rhyming and beginning sound awareness. Please take 10 minutes each day to work with your child on these skills, it will help ensure that they are on track to become successful readers!
