Mrs. Grant's Kindergarten
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to Kindergarten! I just wanted to thank our three room moms, Tiffany Muth, Angie Fitzpatrick, and Tina Travis, for such an organized winter party. A great time was had by all thanks to you. :)
Each child seemed so excited to come back to school on Tuesday and share stories about their two week break. I hope you all had a memorable and relaxing time with your families!

On Thursday we enjoyed learning about nouns. Each student received a post it with either a person, place, or thing written on it. While using complete sentences, they had to stand up and tell the class their noun and if it was a person, place, or thing.
