Weekly News: December 3-7


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!

Next Monday, December 10th is Grandparents Day at ILCS! Our TK through 2nd grade classes will be performing some holiday songs in the sanctuary, then we invite all grandparents back to our classroom to do a special craft together. Times for Grandparents Day TBD so keep checking your ParentSquare emails from the school! 


Gingerbread Man Information: 

Details: We will be performing our kindergarten play, "The Tale of the Gingerbread Man" on the evening of Tuesday, December 18th at 7:00. TK will have a small performance at 5:00, then Mrs. Bobrink and Mrs. Marion's classes will  perform at 6:00 and Mrs. Bess and Mrs. Stanley's classes will perform at 7:00. Because of so much going on this evening and the limited amount of parking, we are asking you to arrive at the Cub's Den (church sanctuary) at 6:45 to get your costume on and get ready. If you come any earlier, another class may still be performing/taking pictures/etc. and we want to be respectful of their time. Please arrive at 6:45. Our rehearsals have been going well and the students are having so much fun! We hope that all parents are able to make this wonderful event! 

Parent Help for the Play: We are in need of parent helpers on the morning of Monday, December 17th (8:15-9:15) to help us with our "dress rehearsal". We will also need parent helpers on the morning of Tuesday, December 18th (around 9:00) to help us with our school day performance, and will also need parents to help put on costumes for our Tuesday evening performance at 6:45. If anyone is able to come help, please let us know! The more, the better! 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 (the 18th) morning and Tuesday (the 18th) evening wearing a plain black or white shirt and black leggings or pants so that it is easier to put their costumes over their clothes :) If you are a farmer, please wear jeans instead of black pants, but we will provide the rest of your costume. 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, THING, THINK, 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. Students will continue to take home leveled Reading A to Z books and library books in our book bags. Please practice reading these sheets and these books every day at home. Please remember that everything in your book bag MUST come back to school every day! 

Writing: We will continue to work on our writing goals as we strive to write three to five sentences every day. Some students will be writing topic sentences, three details, and a conclusion sentence. 

Math: We will continue working on fun Christmas story problems and playing fun addition games.  

Leadership: Don't forget to ROAR everyday to keep earning those ROAR tickets!
