We’re really enjoying all of the things that make this time of year special. Along with learning what “really cold” feels like, we’ve been lacing stockings, making snow scenes and enjoying the “gifts of the Gorge.” We’ve been really impressed by how the kids are still working hard and attending to their work despite the big holiday season.
We’ve had a short week, so just a few reminders: Next week is, of course, our final week before winter break. Things to remember are: friendship tokens (by Tuesday), and decorations for gingerbread cookies (also by Tuesday). Both of these are optional. Please email us right away if you don’t know about either of these.
Here’s the latest poem we’ve memorized. It’s fun to hear the children recite it aloud. Ask your child to recite it for you!
by Lilian Moore
Go wind, blow
Push wind, swoosh.
