Happy Back to School!

 

I hope that you all had a great Christmas break and had lot of time to spend with loved ones and make some great memories!

Back at school today was a bit of a turn-around!  I came in this morning to see that the tiles were being put into our classroom!  We have found our new home in the front hallway in the room next to preschool.  For those of you who attend Springs it is in the 12-18m nursery room.  Considering we were not 100 percent prepared for this move today  things went very well and we have come to enjoy our new space – well, until next Wednesday anyhow.

January means the beginning of a bunch of new units in our room.  Bye-bye gingerbread theme and hello snowman theme!  Our overarching theme is the chilly dudes we all love to build.  Curriculum-ly ( I realize that is not a word :o)  ) speaking we are moving on to My Environment (mapping, community, global perspective), money and shapes in math ( while still reviewing everything we have already learned), Exploring the 5 Senses, Poetry, Germs, and a greater focus on guided reading and reading strategies.  It is going to be a blast!

If you want to peek at what we are doing you can check out the two of the previews here (the rest are not up yet):
