Dates to Remember:

Things you may need to work on:

  • Keeping hands to self on the rug, as well as in the hall.
  • Walking in line while refraining from hopping, skipping, jumping.

 

Questions to ask your child:

1.      How many reindeer does Santa have?

 

2.      Who is Frosty?

 

3.      What are two ways you can make others feel good around the holidays?

 

4.      What are two 3-D shapes we are studying?

*It would be very beneficial to your child to establish a daily homework routine of 10 minutes per night.  Writing first name with only the first letter in uppercase, identifying shapes, identifying letters in their name– are all great lessons at home.
