Please help your student think about creating an informational project about bears. Do they want to work alone or in a group? Do they want to make a mural or a diorama? If they choose to make a diorama, please help them find a box to use (slightly bigger than a shoe box). Thank you for your help and support!!!! Mrs. Coombs

Now that we know our alphabet, please encourage your child to write by helping you write lists, like grocery lists, or thank you cards, or Birthday invitations. Please allow your child to use "kid-spelling" and do not give him/her letters or sounds. Your child should be able to write the popcorn words we have introduced. Thanks for helping us become writers!
Please bundle up your children in layers! It is very cold in our classroom and outside!
Please have your child bring shoes to change into if they wear winter boots to school.
P.E. (gym) is on Tuesdays, please where sneakers. (sneakers are a good idea everyday as we will occasionally go outside to explore)
