This Week... February 15th-18th
- At the math center, children will be rolling a dice with a number 1-6 written on it. Then the children are asked to write the number they roll on a sheet. If your child brings home a Roll and Write sheet have them read you the numbers they wrote.
- The dramatic play area is a Post Office. I will be teaching the children to write the name of a friend on the front of an envelope. Then they can choose a card or piece of paper to write their name on and put it into an envelope. We will be using stickers as stamps. If you have the opportunity to send mail to a friend or family member please include your child in on the process.
- Our new book bag book is A Penguins Adventure Book. We will be again taking several books out of their full book bags and I will give them to you at conference time. The bags are quite full-enjoy listening to your child read!
