Welcome 2022 and Welcome Back to School!

 

     This month we will be using the lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to learn about diversity and equality.  We hope to be able go outside for a walk on days where the temperature allows. Continue to dress your child in layers and send in hats, gloves, scarves, and mittens. The class continues to watch our animal friends and learn about animals during the long, cold winter.  

 

     Our language arts unit continues to help develop written and spoken language that is on topic and descriptive in nature. These discussions will include positional words such as: above, below, behind, under, and next to. Having reciprocal conversations with your child at home will reinforce this skill we are working on.

 

     B-R-R-R-R, stay warm!
