We are continuing to work on our life skills of showing respect to our teachers and friends. Our themes for the upcoming months are St. Nicholas and the birth of Jesus, Christmas Poems and Songs, Hibernation, Presidents Lincoln and     Washington, Math- pairs/matching, Valentine number bingo and Pancake and Pajama Day. Some of our projects will be gold bells, surprises for Mom and Dad, penguins, snowflakes, Valentine hearts and shamrocks. We continue to build on our reading skills by learning to recognize printed words, such as the days of the week, months of the year, holidays and special events. In math, we will be learning basic math facts of adding and subtracting by using numbers through sight and counting objects. During the winter months, our science unit theme is how different animals hibernate.
