Room 13

Teacher: Samantha Durkee

December

This month our class will explore holidays, traditions and geography in different countries around the world. Through stories and hands on learning activities, student’s will develop an appreciation for diversity in traditions. We will begin writing to our Pen Pals at Tamarac Elementary School and continue this activity throughout the rest of the school year


In Math students will be exploring the concept of more and less. We will look at different groups of objects and compare them through hands-on learning activities.

As we get closer to winter, we are hoping more snow will fall. Room 13 will be exploring the outdoors and experiencing all the great sensory activities that are included with the snow. Watch for pictures as we head outside to color snow, build snowmen and create fun obstacle courses!
