Happy Fall!

We began a study of Rap a Tap Tap- a book about the famous tap dance Bill “Bojangles” Robinson! We began our study of two dimensional shapes. Encourage your student to find shapes in the world around them! This week we reviewed the letters we have learned so far (m, a, g, I, c, d, o, t). Students should be able to read and form simple words in the consonant, vowel, consonant pattern using the letters listed above.

-One peanut free snack and water bottle should be sent each day.

-Please label all clothing with your student’s name. Many students have PPE Spirit wear and we want to ensure it gets home with the correct student.

-Additionally, please help your student practice buttoning, snapping, or zipping their coats independently. As the weather begins getting cooler jackets are necessary during arrival, dismissal, and recess. Students putting on and taking off coats independently is a big time saver!

-the 50th day of school is on Wednesday, October 26th! Your student can come in SSA or in 50s wear! We’re so proud of all the things they’ve accomplished so far this year!

-Harvest party is coming up! We are so excited to celebrate with our classes. This year guests are limited to room parents only.
