Theme Transportation
Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed your winter break. And now it’s time to get back to work! For January 2010, the students will be learning about transportation. We will learn about the various modes of transportation – air, water, land and space. We will also discuss why we use transportation and how it can help us.
During the month of December, children learned about Christmas and prepositions. K4 students were able to make sentences like “The reindeer are hiding behind a snowman” “Santa is standing in front of the Christmas tree.” They really enjoyed singing “Opposite” song and did an amazing job learning all of the words that goes with the song, too! K3 students also did a wonderful job understanding the concept of prepositions and were able to make sentences like “Santa is inside a box.” “Presents are under the tree.”  WOW! Lastly, the Children’s show was a huge success and I want to thank all the children and parents for their hard work!
