Weekly News: December 8-12

News: 

We are FULL of information this week so please take a moment to read carefully so you don't miss out on anything! Thank you!


Monday, December 15th is Grandparents Day at ILCS! We invite all grandparents who are able, to join us in the Lion's Den at 8:15. Our classes will perform a few songs and our principal will give a short presentation. 

Kindergarten will NOT be performing at the ILCS Christmas Program on Monday night. 

We WILL be having our very own special program - "The Tale of the Gingerbread Man". Our rehearsals have been going well and the students are having so much fun! Our performance dates are set! We will be doing two performances of our play - one at night and one during the school day. Our night performance will be on Tuesday, December  16th- Mrs. Bess's and Mrs. Stanley's classes will perform at 7:00 and we ask you to be there by 6:45 to get your costume on and get ready. Our school day performance will be on Thursday morning at 9:30. We hope that all parents are able to make this wonderful event! 

Parent Help for the Play: We are in need of many parent helpers on Tuesday morning (16th)and Thursday morning (18th) to help us with our "dress rehearsal" and performance. If anyone is able to come help us on both of those mornings, please let us know! Thank you!

Play Costumes: We are providing all of the costumes and props for your children. We ask that your child come to school on Tuesday night and Thursday morning wearing a plain white shirt and black leggings or pants so that it is easier to put their costumes over their clothes :) The only costume that we do NOT provide is the narrator - we ask that the narrators please dress in "Sunday best".

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: 
OUR, WHO, THINK, THING, THAT.

Letter Team: 
 
INK (like in PINK, SINK) and ED (We are learning that tricky Mr. ED goes at the end of the word to tell us that something has already happened - making the word past tense. Mr. ED is tricky because sometimes he makes the "T" sound - like in LOOKED, sometimes he makes the "D" sound - like in PLAYED, and sometimes he says "ED" like in WANTED).

Reading:
 We are reading many books about the holidays. 


Writing:  This week we will continue our "Writer's Checklist" - a list of things that all good writers do, such as proper punctuation, uppercases at the beginning of a sentence and name, finger spaces between each word, spelling word wall words correctly, adding details, making sure our writing makes sense, and trying our best! We will read this checklist everyday to make sure we are applying each of those skills in our writing.


Math:  This week we will continue to learn our addition "DOUBLES" in our fun DOUBLES SONG. You can help at home by asking your child doubles addition questions (2+2, 7+7, 10+10, etc.) We will start working on fun Christmas story problems in our math journals. 

Leadership: Our leadership theme for the month of November and December is Gratefulness.
