Kindergarten News: 9/9
We dug into a new book about the five senses, My Five Senses by Aliki, and discussed how our senses make us aware of the world around us. We started a new unit in math- Numbers 1-10. Our wonderful school counselor and our school nurse are both popping into classrooms and teaching mini lessons. Students are continuing to earn Tiger tickets and class compliments for good behavior. We’re so proud of their hard work!
-One peanut free snack and water bottle should be sent each day.
