What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update: 12-11-13

on December 11, 2013


This week we are thankful for warmer weather and outside recess! It is a relatively routine week, following the assemblies last week and preceding the holiday fun next.

Today, Ms Paula did some fun holiday motor activities with the class (see the new pictures).

Some fun things will be happening next week.

1. Literacy Night is next Thursday after school. This is a fun Edison tradition involving dramatic readings of the Polar Express, holidays around the world skits, and classroom activities. It’s also a giant PJ party! My role varies each year based on our needs. My plan for this year is to hold our classroom as a break space. This way, you can check out the activities in your child’s general education class, participate in the reading, etc, but come to our classroom if your child needs a break. Then we can catch up too. Let me know what you think of this idea for the fun night!

2. I am attempting to schedule a holiday party with the Recess Buddies next week. Otherwise, holiday parties will be coordinated with your child’s general education teacher.

If you are willing and able, I would love a quick note about some of your holiday traditions. This will allow me to help facilitate conversation with peers, for which this is a hot topic these days.

Let me know if you have any questions or ideas about our last few days of school in 2013!

PS Over break I will be performing with my dance company in Lakewood for a holiday show. If you’re looking for something fun and different to do with your family, it would be awesome to see you there! The music/volume and lighting is similar to most dance performances. For more information, video and pictures, or to buy tickets check out the website: ascendanceproject.com. If many of you are interested I could ask about a Room 125 group rate:)
