Merry Christmas!! 
Welcome to the craziest time of year! I tend to write lots of notes during the month of December as things seem to be going on every single day and my swiss cheese brain needs lots of reminders. The children have been working very hard in their music class in preparation for the Christmas concert which is this Wednesday! They have also been busy learning their lines for our Christmas play which is being held on Wednesday, Dec 20th. We will get a chance to practice our play in front of an audience when we visit Katinka House in Mattituck to "Share the Spirit".  In between all this rehearsing we continue to meet new Superkids, Sal being next, and add more sight words to our ever growing list. We are also working on reading comprehension and matching our words with our pictures. Our next chapter in math is classifying and counting data- something we have been doing since September! Our science lessons continue to involve hibernation and migration. And in social studies we will explore how Christmas is celebrated around the world. Religion, of course, will focus on advent and the coming birth of Jesus. We will celebrate St. Nicholas Day as well as discuss the importance of Mary with the Immaculate Conception. Squeezed in among all these activities will be some gingerbread stories- culminating with a trip to Gingerbread University on Dec. 18th.
