Organization

Mother Goose Day will be coming soon.  A list of characters will come home on Monday.  We need to pick our characters we will be, so Ms. G. can give you their poem they need to memorize and recite in front of the class.  I would like each student to be a different character, so we don't have doubles.  Ms. G. is Mother Goose of course and she will need her friends to help her recite all those poems.  I will let you know the date as soon I as I firm it up with the secretaries!
