ALL ABOUT TURKEYS!

This week, our theme is "Native Americans and Pilgrims!" Throughout the week, we will be incorporating various activities to discuss the first thanksgiving and about Native Americans and Pilgrims. The letter N will be introduced. While at home, have your child spy for items that begin with N. They can also point out the letter N. Ask them if it is a capital or lowercase letter. We will also be focusing on identifying, building, and writing our names. In math, we will be reviewing the numbers 2 and 3. We will also be focusing on rectangles and introducing AABB patterns.
