January 11, 2012

Happy New Year!

Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed a restful holiday with family and friends. We have been back at school for a few days and are quickly getting back into our routine. December was so busy that there was not much time to post so I thought I'd do a little catch up now!

First, Mme. Hanson and I would like to thank everyone for the donations to our 'angels' from the Angel Tree. We hope it brightened their Christmas morning! Here are a couple of photos of the gifts we sent to our 'angels' because of your support and generosity.

Thank You!!

We were very fortunate to have a little visitor in our classroom for the month of December. Jingles, the elf, appeared one day with a letter for us to read. He asked if he could stay with us until the holidays and we agreed - of course! We enjoyed trying to find him each morning and searching for his letters. Jingles even put up a Christmas tree for us and delivered Polar Express bells. Here are some pictures of our little friend and a copy of his first letter.

Jingles met our friend Pete the Cat.

We even found Jingles sleeping in our class library!

December was a lot of fun and January promises to be very busy in Grade 1. Happy New Year to all!
