Good morning parents,
  We've had a busy week this week! We've collectively lost 3 teeth this week! We're in full swing with whole school Christmas rehearsals and the kids are doing a fantastic job with their songs and group recitations. Thank you for helping your child learn the Christmas Memory Treasures. If you can, continue to practice all of the Christmas Memory Treasures until the Children's Christmas Service on Saturday, December 22 @ 3pm! 
  Show and Tell tomorrow is for the letter E. Please help your child find something that begins with the "E" sound to share with the class!
  I will be sending home either a Purple or a Yellow Folder every Thursday with lists of Sight Words in them. There are 10 lists in the folder, please work through the lists during the following weeks:
List #1: December 6- December 13
List #2: December 13- December 20
List #3: Over Christmas Break (you could work on reviewing lists #1-#3)
List #4: January 10- January 17
List #5: January 17- January 24
List #6: January 24- January 31
List #7: January 31- February 7
List #8: February 7- February 14
List #9: February 14- February 21
List #10: February 21- February 28

 Feel free to keep the Folder and list at home for the week and work through them. Send it back on Thursday for your child to read the list to me. If you want to make flash cards at home for them to use, or any other creative ideas you may have to help them memorize the words- go for it! Please initial and date the bottom of the list when your child mastered the list. I will also initial the bottom of the list after they read it to me. When we complete all 10 lists, we'll move onto more challenging words!
  In lieu of a gift exchange, if you are able, please send in a cash donation to be used towards purchasing gifts for those less fortunate. Thank you to those who have already contributed! The deadline is next Friday, December 14th!
  Next week we'll be working on the following:

  Bible Encouragement for the week:
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:3-6
  Be assured of this same confidence- the God who planted faith in your heart is quite capable of sustaining that faith until Jesus returns!

  Have a great day :)
