Christmas Show Songs

Jingle Bells

We will be singing this song and doing the dance as shown in this video.

These are the songs all students will be singing, though the music may be different.  The children simply need to know the tunes.  They can do the dance of "Santa Has a Red Red Coat" if they would like to.

Weekly Reading Folder Books
Oxford Reading Tree Series

Every week your child will read with our Reading Assistant. She helps to monitor the students' reading abilities and progress.  As your child progresses, they will move up levels in the Oxford Reading Tree series.

 

Each week, your child will receive a new book with another worksheet, which will be due in class the following class.  

 

In addition to the assigned books, it is essential that students read as much as possible in English.  It helps to improve syntax, vocabulary and spelling.  Besides, the world of  books is a wonderful place!
