Newsletter December 2009
What Your Child Will Be Learning The theme for the month of December is Christmas. We will be making many holiday decorations to brighten your home. Many of the activity papers have a P.S. (Parent Suggestions) noted on the page. These suggestions are to help you discuss work done at school and create a follow-up learning experience. If you have a young child, don't expect the activity papers to be colored. The most important things are the concepts taught, i.e. beginning sounds, number of objects, etc. Most of the learning takes place in the daily group floor activities with real objects and discussion. These papers can reinforce the learning activity, but they are mainly a link with the home so your child can show you what he or she has been learning. Proudly display your child's work,
