Coin Drive

Bryant is collecting coins through this Wednesday to purchase turkey dinners for those in need this season! Please send in loose change to add to our coin jar. Thanks to those who have already donated.

Telling stories using our fingers...

Ask your student to tell you a "small moment" story using their fingers. This helps them organize their thoughts before writing and remember details. We also worked on choosing other words besides "and" or "then" to tell what happens in our stories.


It was cold last week! Please remind your student to bring gloves/mittens and other winter gear when needed. Place names in items if possible.
