Week of November 27

This starts one of the most exciting times in first grade! The holiday season is a fun time to complete lots of cool plays, crafts, and writings! I am so excited to share this time with our first graders! As the holiday season approaches, our class will be learning about how the holiday season is celebrated throughout the world. If you have an cultural holiday custom that you would like to share, I encourage you to let me know, and I would love to have you come to our class, or send items in to teach us about it! If this applies to you, please contact me at cristen.appel@pennmanor.net. Also during this season, I wish to be sensitive to all family’s beliefs. Our class will be making ornaments and doing some writing related to trees, Santa, and reindeer. If you would like to talk to me with any concerns, please feel free to email me or call the school and leave a message for me to return your call. Thank you! I look forward to this season!
