Classroom Happenings!!!

Here are a few things that have been "happening" in the classroom. These are great discussion starters with your child.


1) Ask your child about their sight words. How many can they remember? Have them show you some in their library book. This week we will be reviewing all the sight words learned.


2) Ask your child about the two new characters they learned about: Daisy Dragon & Ollie Ostrich. Have your child tell you one thing they remember about them.


3) In Math, we have been sorting and patterning. Ask your child to tell you what a pattern is and to find some around the house or outside.
