Language Arts Work:

Working on developing consistent sound/ letter recognition the children practice sounds orally and are working on writing the sounds that they hear. "Monday news" is developing well and the children enjoy sharing and then writing their news. They are now more confident to sound out words to write their news. This week the children wrote thank you notes to Mr. Merwin who was the 8th grade teacher at BFS. He came into school, set up a sky lab and taught the children about stars.
