School notes:
The last couple of weeks you probably have noticed that all of the children's papers have their names highlighted in yellow.  I always have them  trace over their highlighted names with crayon.  This gives them practice in writing their names.

On Wednesday, December 3rd, the four year old preschool will be going to Santa's workshop in the church basement.  They can buy Christmas gifts for their families.  If you would like your child to participate, please send money and a list of who they are to buy for.  
*Our classroom needs some packages of Betty Crocker gingerbread mix for the sensory table.
