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 new characters we were introduced to for the letter Kk: Kimmy Kangaroo and Nn: Nellie Newt. Ask your child what their favourite sound is? Ask your child what our sight word was for this week and how to spell them (for).

2) Ask your child to show you how they can represent a number using tally marks?
