Prek 3 ( Adele Leeds / Michele Zinicola) 
This week’s letter is J. We’ll make jellyfish, jack-in-the-boxes ( shape review) and strawberry jam for a special snack!
We’ll sort and count jellybeans (1-8) and practice patterning with colorful jewels.

We’ll have Show and Tell on Thursday and Friday. Please ask your child to choose something beginning with any letter A through J.
We’ll learn and illustrate this December poem:

December

All the months go past
Each is like a guest
December is the last
December is the best!
Each has lovely things
Each one is a friend
But December brings
Christmas at the end!

We are practicing  for our show. The children are doing a great job and are looking forward to sharing their songs with you on December 20th!
