Week of November 18th

Hello Parents:

We want to thank everyone who came to Parent/Teacher conferences! We enjoyed meeting with everyone.

We are going to do an abbreviated author study of Mo Willems. He has a fun collection of books that children will learn and laugh with. We will then transition into a month long Gingerbread Man study in conjunction with our Kindness Unit. We will explore the various versions of the story and end our study with a Gingerbread decorating party!

Thanksgiving Break will be Thursday, November 28th – Friday, November 29th. Regular class will resume on Monday, December 2nd.

Many parents expressed interest in learning our Morning Meeting songs. Here are links and titles to all of songs:

Jane Averill Reading Day- Friday, November 22nd– This is a day that the community schools read a special book in memorial to Ms. Jane who was a beloved preschool teacher here at Ray. Ms. Jane passed away a few years ago and she was an awesome story teller and she exposed her students to a plethora of books and I am sure she instilled the love of books in her students. We are looking forward to celebrate with this new Ray tradition.

Reminders:
Please remember to assist your child in returning their library books into the blue bin labeled “Return Library Books Here” located near the exit door. Please do not re-shelve the books! Library books are due on Tuesdays, not Wednesdays. If you forget to turn in the book on Tuesday simply keep it another week until the next Tuesday.
