Next Week’s News! 12/1/2017

Happy Friday and Happy December!

Next week we will be learning about Hanukkah and Hibernation. The books we will be reading will include:
“The Night Before Hanukkah” by Natasha Wing and Amy Wummer
“Simon and the Bear; a Hannukah Tale” by Eric A Kimmel and Matthew Truman
“Hibernation Station” by Michelle Meadows and Kurt Cyrus
“Time to Sleep” by Denise Fleming
“Hibernation” by Margaret Hall
Please check and make sure that hanging from your child’s hook is their RHS shoe bag with seasonally appropriate change of clothing. This includes long pants and a long sleeved shirt, socks underclothes and a change of shoes.
Also, please make sure that each day your child has a warm coat, hat and mittens (NOT gloves).
On Tuesday, we will swap names for a holiday gift exchange. On Friday, December 15th, please bring in a wrapped gift for the friend whose name your child draws. Please keep the value of the gift under $10. On the card your child chooses, there will be some basic information about the Christmas wishes of their classmate. If you have any questions at all, just let me know!
Next Friday, December 8th, we will be working with Mrs. Silva and Chef Jay on our first preschool project. We will be reading and baking The Gingerbread Man! Even though we are planning to be very careful, I have a sneaking suspicion that he may jump out of the oven and run away. Where will he go? That’s what we will be trying to figure out! When your child comes home and tells you that the Gingerbread Man has run away, please help by contacting all of your friends and family and social media contacts . Ask them to send us a letter or postcard telling us how they spotted our Gingerbread Man in their area. We will then begin to map the travels of our little man and see where his adventures take him!
Thank you for all of your support for the Potter League this year. Each year we “adopt” this wonderful shelter. Check out our tree. Pick a candy cane (or several). Purchase the items and bring them in. Enjoy the candy! Visit The Potter League at
Next week you we will be writing our letters to Santa. These letters will be addressed and mailed home. Be on the look out!
Do you have a special family holiday tradition that you would like to share? Let me know. We’d love to welcome you into our classroom.

Our Winter Break will begin immediately following Winter Solstice on Friday, December 15th just before lunch time.
Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!
