January, 2016 Newsletter
Happy New Year to our Happy Days Family!
In December we celebrated Scarlett, Savannah, Devin, and Lincoln’s birthdays. Brody, Sophia, and Cooper were Miss Laura’s Star Students and made beautiful presentations! All month we were preparing for winter holiday fun. We had themes of reindeer, gingerbread men, bells and the holidays; all of which were enhanced with literacy, science, social studies, and math components. We culminated our month with some PJ days as we watched “Ice Age; A Mammoth Christmas Special” and “Little Einsteins; The Christmas Wish” and sipped on hot chocolate. On the 17th we had a wonderful Frozen themed day of singing, dancing, games, and face painting. Hope your children enjoyed! Our full day students rotated between afternoon weeks of math, language, social studies, and science, with literacy activities mixed in everyday. In January, our themes of study will be Mittens/Hats, Polar Animals, Quilts, and the Winter. Each week there will be a new letter of the week based on our theme. Our afternoon themes will be Button Math, Author Karma Wilson (literacy), Martin Luther King (Social Studies), and Ice/Snow (science).
Parent/Teacher conferences for anyone from Miss Laura’s class who did not yet have one and would like one are still available. Miss Rachael will be having hers on January 20th and 21st. Please sign up for one if you have not yet.
