November 12-16, 2018

Last Friday's Weekly Reader taught us about veterans. We learned that veterans are people who have served our country and helped to protect us and keep us safe. 

We then gathered together with our friends in Nursery and Kindergarten to make cards thanking our veterans and members of the armed forces for their service.  Through Operation Gratitude the cards will be mailed to veterans and troops serving around the world. Our hope is that we might even receive a letter back from some of them!

Show and Tell continues to be a Pre-K class favorite! It is amazing to see the students' confidence grow each week as they describe their clues for their classmates. Their public speaking skills are developing more and more and they love sharing their items with their friends.

Charity, Blaine, Nora, and Marcus found the Pp
Sandpaper Letters and shared that Pp says /p/.

Lily shared her picture and Kellan shared his police car.

Foster shared a pot and Jordyn shared Play-Doh.

Mira shared a pig and Vincent shared a pencil.

Scarlett shared a pear and Cory shared a penny.

Austin shared a pillow and Braela shared a puppy.
Our next Show and Tell will be on Wednesday, November 28. The topic will be something that starts with /b/.

What a surprise snowfall we had yesterday! The boys and girls cheered as the looked out the windows and saw the snow falling. So, of course, we had to take them outside for a few minutes to catch some snowflakes!

Teachers and students had so much fun!

Have a great weekend!
