How Have I changed?

Dear Parents,

We have been learning all about the different types of changes in our environment during IC. We will soon be investigating ways that people can change.

During our investigation, we will observe how we have changed and what we can do now that we are older.

For this activity, students are allowed to bring a current photo and a baby photo of themselves. These photos may not be returned. Small, copied or printed photos (3 1/2 X5 or smaller) are best. Please send photos on Monday, May 11th or before.

Thank You!!

Kindergarten Teachers
