Classroom Happenings!!!

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


1) Talk about the two new characters we were introduced to that help us remember our letters and letter sounds that we need for reading and spelling. Have your child tell you one thing they remember about Farley Fox and Baby Barnaby. Then have them tell you what sounds those two characters like the best, and what letter represents those sounds.


2) Get your child to tell you what they are thankful for. As them what they wrote on their turkey crafts.


3) We recently read the book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" Have your child come up with and talk about three different ways they can fill someone's bucket.
