FROM THE LIBRARY…
 
December is a busy month in Library class.
 
Pre-K students will be enjoying seasonal literature with the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. Our Pre-K students will not be bringing home a library book the week before our winter break. I encourage you to visit the Indiana Free Library to continue sharing books with our youngest library users.
 
Kindergarten students are exploring many versions of the gingerbread man and will be learning about December holidays. Our kindergarten students will not be bringing home a library book the week before our winter break. I encourage you to visit the Indiana Free Library to continue sharing books with your kindergarten student.
 
1st graders will learn about Christmas tree farming, December holidays, and listen to many favorite holiday stories. Encourage your 1st graders to continue to build reading stamina over the winter break. Try to set aside time every day to read-the rewards your child will get in return will last a lifetime!
 
2nd grade students will complete their special project for our East Pike Christmas tree then spend time exploring December holidays. Encourage your student to continue to read over the upcoming winter break share your favorite holiday story or pull out their favorite recipe and encourage them to read the ingredients to you.
 
3rd grade students are continuing to explore Destiny library, our library catalog. Ask your student to show you how to log into Destiny-there are many resources to explore when you are logged in! Encourage your student to continue to read over the upcoming winter break-share your favorite holiday story or have them read to you! Have a wonderful holiday season! 
 
 
As a reminder, please help your student take care of their library books. Library books should be kept in a safe place at home away from young siblings, pets, food and drinks. If something happens to your child's library book please email me to let me know. Library books are different quality compared to books sold in stores. They are made to withstand many users. If a book needs to be replaced - I will order it from a company that specially makes books for libraries.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION…
 
Students will be practicing their basketball skills in gym class. Maybe East Pike will have the next LeBron James in the making-it all starts with great fundamentals. Parents please ask Santa for snow pants and waterproof gloves for you children. The snow is coming and we will be going sled riding in class! The Elks National Hoop Shoot will be held at East Pike after school on December 4th. All students who will be 8 years old by April 1, 2019 are able to participate. Information has been sent home.
 
REMEMBER…Pack Sneakers!

TITLE I READING…
 
Reading makes real-life experiences more meaningful. It can give us a sense of other cultures, a historical perspective, and even an introduction to unfamiliar symbols. Books can help us to make sense of the world around us. If you are celebrating a holiday, you may consider using books to explore the history, culture and symbols of your holiday. Books can also familiarize us with other cultures and their celebrations. Pick up a few books for the holiday season! Fictional and nonfiction stories can assist us in exploring our traditions and traditions of others. Each time you read with your child, you give them an opportunity to learn more about their world! The Title Team wishes you a wonderful holiday season with your families and friends!
