Cheers to 2020!

2019 has been amazing! Your child started TK and made lots of new friends, and we all got to experience bonding and connection as a 206 family! As 2019 finishes we start to prepare for 2020! Set a 100 day goal!!…Maybe a challenge to help others in specific way? Maybe a health goal to try a new vegetable every week? Possibly a time goal to leave earlier or spend 30 minutes of screen free time as a family? Or maybe even going to bed earlier every night to start the next day refreshed and without rushing? So many options! Regardless of your goal, may you reflect on all the good in this life of ours and strive towards your goal with confidence and accountability and of course with love! 

Make sure you relax, rest, and recover from the busy! Take time to enjoy yourselves as a family. Play a game, go for a walk, and try to have a schedule free evening or day! May be the best Christmas gift ever! 

I’m so grateful to begin this new decade with you all! Thank you again for the daily support you all provide in our class and in your homes! Cheers! Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2020! 

Best News Ever!!! (well maybe this month!!)

So many not the best news ever…but some of the best news this year!…our class is finally getting Chrome Book Devices! We have waited patiently and are so excited to have a set of our own!!

Winter Sightings!

Friday we got see EBS Santa in our class. He was visiting the Kinder classrooms and stopped in. (Our kids might have recognized Mr. Tom right away, but know he is also a helper of the real Santa ;). 

Also, Mr. Waczek and the choir did some caroling in the courtyard! The kids had a great time! Check out a video on the Facebook page! (Will be posting soon!)

Family Card

The card/letters to our family presents didn’t get sent home with the gifts. We sent them home Friday and wanted to give you all a heads up!

Winter Gifts

This week you will receive a gift from your child. They are planning to share this with you for either Christmas, Hanukkah or the New Year. They love you dearly and are trying their best to keep this a secret. 

Amazing 206 Team

This post tells of multiple amazing talents and gifts shared by different parents in our class! There are so many more of you who contribute this TK Tribe! Thank you for your efforts, time and all that each of you do for these 27 sweet little faces! You are the difference that makes this year and class so unique and memorable for your lovelies! Thank you so much for partnering with me! 

Holiday Shop Visit

The Holiday Shop visit was a success! A special thanks to the parents who came out to assist our young shoppers! They were awesome and super helpful!

Pajama Day

This Friday is an all-school Pajama Day! Come dressed in your cozies! Remember to check the weather for PJ choices and don’t forget to wear regular shoes (no slippers or feetsie pj’s). 

Letter of the Week – Gg

This past week we studied the letter/sound Gg. We worked to practice and understand that Gg has 2 different sounds (/guh/ and /ji/). 

Character Education – Generosity

Nicole Meyer also  came in this week to teach the December Character Education trait! She read them the book, Stone Soup and had them interactively participate as they each got to contribute different pretend items to the shared soup pot. We also discussed and tied this trait of giving to others with joyful heart to the recent generous act we participated in of bringing meals of rice, beans and legumes to donate to families in Mexico. This is an important trait and valuable in building the care and empathy for others. Thank you for participating in discussing and sharing this with your child! 

Hallway Art

In case you haven’t noticed, we are excited and ready for winter!! Caitlyn Tschernkowitsch came in and read Snowmen at Night with our class. She had the class each make their own snow globe with a snowman inside. The students had fun creating their own glittery winter art for the season! 

Mrs. Miller Planter

Our TK planter was struggling to survive! Jen Vanderveer donated some succulent clippings along with some donated clippings from Chinmay to create a lovely and revived planter! 

Another Running Club Accomplishment

Our dear friend Walter achieved the 100 lap ribbon from the morning Run Club! We are so proud of him and his efforts! 

Buddy Time

This past Friday was our last visit with our buddies until 2020! The TK’s love, love, love their buddies! It is for sure their highlight of the week! This week, we had prepared a little gift and card for their buddies and also received a card in return! It was a special moment! 

Math Tiles

Many of you received a colored penguin this week. The students are doing great in Tile Math and moving along. If you see one of these penguins come home, commend your you little student for efforts and great counting!
