Its been awhile!

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAIn case you are wondering – the internet connection at my house is acting a bit sketchy so I thought I would do it from here today!

I have a few things to share since my last post!

I think that considering the holiday craziness they are doing awesome! They did a rockin’ chapel, and performed like superstars at the care home!  Way to go Grade 1’s! They did great work on their cards and were super friendly about handing them out in a way that was meaningful!  And a BIGGER thank you to all the Moms and Dads who helped out or showed up to support their little ones!  You have no idea how much it impacts their school days to know you support them!

A few projects we are working on right now:

Christmas centers : Three or four times a week we are doing centers where the kids get to rotate through four centers – and they LOVE it! I mentioned them before – stocking center for punctuation practice, Christmas tree three numeral adding, pine cone painting and biography, patterning and alphabetical order.  You will see this work coming home occasionally – praise them heavily because they work so hard!

Our prayer a day is going strong – we have prayed for parents, teachers, bus drivers, patience, honesty, and peace.  We have some great ones coming this week too!

RACKS!   I sent home a sheet outlining the idea of a RACK – a random act of Christmas kindness. This week we are doing a few things each day to show people we care about them and that God loves them!  Yesterday we handed out chocolates with RACK cards to people all over – church workers, flooring workers, construction workers, a delivery man, staff, and students.  We were super quiet and sneaky!  I think it is very important for the kids to understand that Christmas is for us to celebrate Jesus.  Jesus told us in the bible that if we love him we will FEED HIS SHEEP!  That means serving others in deed and time.  Pop by this week to see what else we are doing!

There is spelling this week – Christmas words!  We have practiced them in class, but here are the words so you can practice them at home –
























holly



angel



star



baby



Jesus



three



gift



men



bell



wise



Thank you for the gifts you have sent – you are all awesome and I thank you for sharing your little one with me every day :o)

Blessing

Mrs. Hildebrand

Note: We made Birthday cards to Jesus to decorate the room – ask your kids about them they were very proud of their work!
