NO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY!

There will be no school on Friday, due to a "snow day."

SEESAW

If you haven't already done so, please join SeeSaw. It is a wonderful tool that allows me to share pictures and videos of our learning in the classroom. It is completely private and the pictures/videos of your child go directly to you.

Color: Green

Rhyming

Beginning Sounds

ALL ABOUT FARMS!

This week, our theme is "GARDEN!" We will be learning all about plant needs! Throughout the week, we will be incorporating various activities to introduce the letters G. We will be focusing on beginning sounds. While at home, have your child spy for items that begin with G. They can also point out the letters G. Ask them if it is a capital or lowercase letter. We will also be focusing on identifying, building, and writing our names. Some kiddos have mastered writing their first name. Those that are ready will begin to writing their last name. In math, we will be learning about the number 10 and reviewing the color green.
