Helpful Information and Reminders

- Three ways to read a book:

* Read the pictures

* Read the words

* Retell the story

When reading the pictures, your child can make predictions about the story. Then, if it's possible, a parent or sibling can read the story aloud. Finally, your child can again look at the pictures and retell the story.


- The classroom is open at 8:20 allowing time for the children to start school promptly at 8:30. If your child is late, please say goodbye to them outside the classroom. Please understand and respect that class has begun and encourage your child's independence, just as we are in the classroom.
