We have so much to do this week! We begin our week making and eating fried rice for Chinese New Year. We will be celebrating the “Year of the Monkey” by making paper plate monkeys. On Wednesday and Thursday we will be eating pancakes and wearing pajamas. We will read If You Give a Pig a Pancake and watch the DVD A Pocket for Corduroy. We will also be celebrating Valentine’s Day. If you are going to send in valentines from your child to his/her friends, we ask that you sign them “To my friend from,” With 20 children in the class, it is very difficult to sort out personalized valentines. On Friday, we will celebrate Maya’s birthday.
If you have been able to create Valentines for Veterans, please send them in so that Miss Anne can deliver them in time for our veterans to receive them for Valentine’s Day.
Presidents’ Day allows us to learn about two very important people in our history. We will read stories about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. We will learn what the President does and why it’s such an important job. We will color pictures of George Washington and the cherry tree and Abraham Lincoln and his log cabin. If time, and the weather, permits; we will create a log cabin using craft sticks.
Looking forward to a wonderful week,
Miss Louise, Miss Enedina, Miss Jade & Mr. Joe
