Welcome Back! I hope you all had a restful holiday season. As we get back into the routine of school I would like to remind you to please send hats, gloves, and if possible snow boots daily. As long as the weather permits, we will go outside daily.

No School January 15th in observance of Martin Luther King Day

Curriculum Focus
The next few weeks we will be wrapping up 
our Transportation unit. We will also be focusing on the story Jack and the Beanstock with emphasis on retelling the story verbally or using pictures. Our next STEM unit is Robotics.

Our letter focus this month will include P, B, R, K, and A. In math we will be focusing on basic ABAB patterns. Some ways you can integrate this at home would be at snack: pretzel, cracker, pretzel, cracker or using what ever toy your child is playing with alternating by color, shape, etc.

Each week we focus on a core word. We practice saying the word, signing it, and do a quick activity related to the use of the word.Our core words for January include teacher, box, play, work, and go.
