The Tiny Turtle’s
December Newsletter 


Who can believe it is already December, because I sure can’t? Our first half of the year has been so much fun! Every student in our class has been working hard, learning, and growing each day. Mrs. Montoya and I are very proud of them.


In ELA this month we are focusing on the big theme, then and now. We are working on strategies to sound out words in our reading, as well as learning and recognizing sight words. In writing we are working on opinion pieces, using capital letters when needed, using spaces, and punctuation marks at the end of our sentences. We are also working really hard on sounding out the words in our sentences all by ourselves.


In math we have been learning about 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes. Specifically; circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, rhombus, pentagon, and hexagon, sphere, cylinder, cube, pyramid, and cone. We have also started to touch on writing out addition sentences and working on the concept of subtraction.

Dragon Party

Our class has done an amazing job filling up their 7 habits jars and have earned a dragon party, which will take place on Wednesday December 13th in our classroom from 11:30- 12:45. We would love it, if you could join us in celebrating their achievements.


Now that the weather is getting colder please make sure your child is leaving the house each morning with a jacket. Students who do not have a jacket will have to stay inside for recess.

Possible Snack Changes

We appreciate everyone sending in snack on their snack day, however we have more than once, experienced instances where not enough snack was sent in and/or the necessary items to serve that snack have not been provided. Unfortunately if this continues to happen, I will be switching our class snack policy to where each student will be responsible for bringing in their own snack each day.
