Past & Present

Last week we enjoyed learning about letter Tt. We enjoyed bringing in a toy from home and using it to guide our writing. We also enjoyed bringing in a special Teddy Bear. We read to our Teddy and also engaged in music and movement with our Teddy. Towards the end of the week, we started gearing up for Halloween. We loved creating a Haunted Sticker Story.

This week it is all about letter Aa and our new sight word is "have". On Monday we had fun participating in our first D.P.S Halloween parade. The costumes were awesome. A special, "Thank you" to those parents who sent in items for our Halloween party. Pictures from the day are on our class blog (
