Bringing Literature to Life

Dear Parents,

What an exhilarating week we've had with our students. They were exposed to so many books at such a small period of time. Since Monday we have been focusing on the importance of books and how we can use them in and outside the classroom. Our kids can foster their imagination by just looking at the pictures and create their own story based on what they see, learn letters by looking at them, practice their fine-motor skills by passing the pages, and so many important skills.


The Napping House was a complete success on Wednesday's Parade. As I walked through the hallways I could hear and see interested faces asking what character was each child dressed liked. They were so proud of their work and how they looked as we went to the parade route.


It was an incredible week! Check out the pictures and activities they were part of.

Stacking Characters

Sequencing benefits children since it allows them to understand the order of events in their life. In this activity students had to stack the different characters in the story.
