Hello Families!

We are learning about farms and the seasons! We are working hard to name the seasons in order, identify different weather in each season, and identify appropriate clothing for each season. We are continuing to learn about addition and subtraction. Students should be able to read and form simple words in the consonant, vowel, consonant pattern using the letters listed above and m, a, g, I, c, d, o, t, n, h, s, v, z, p, e, f, b, l, r, u, w, and j.

-Navigator day is Wednesday, December 7th. Please send your student to school in their red field trip shirt.
