Dear Parents, 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we navigate the online learning. I am hoping the children are enjoying their time online with us as well as the activities sent home. I am looking forward to the day we can meet with them here in the classroom SAFELY in person as a class.

Along with this newsletter, you will find this week’s packets. Please note that some items will need to be returned for assessment purposes, you will find a list of those items below. Also attached to this newsletter you will find the class activation codes and directions for our scholastic magazines along with the class code to order books if you wish to do so.

This week our class will wrap up theme 1, we will read stories about the things we do at school, our topic this week is “Our Happy Classroom Our read-aloud this week is a tale from Africa titled “The Big Mouth Frog.” And our big book this week is titled “The Great Shape Hunt”

 You can help your child learn more by talking with them about the things that they are doing in school. Here are some ways that you can work with your child at home.

ASK? What did you read today? What was the story about? What shapes did you learn about? Do you see those shapes here in our home? Where? Can you name them?
