Dear parents ,
It’s hard to believe but there are only seven weeks left of school! We have been working the past few weeks on a lot of review in regards to shapes, numbers, colors etc .For the most part the children who have been with us from the start of the year are doing fantastic with review which is so rewarding for us to see how much they have learned this year! We completed the alphabet last week and although we don’t expect children at this age to identify letters typically many of your children have already begun to do so. Each week we have a vocabulary bucket with a variety of items that start with the letter of the week which they have enjoyed tremendously. For the last seven weeks we will strictly be reviewing letters and working on numbers six through 10 along with hands on activities. Please see the activities for this coming week below :

Letter of the week: b

Some books we will be reading:
A bug, a bear, and a boy by David Mcpaul
The Bernstein bear b book
The grumpy bird by Jeremy tankard
