Hi everyone!  We had a great day today!  The kids got to go to gym for the first time.  We also read Chrysanthemum and then practiced printing our names on the mini whiteboards.  Tonight ask your child to show you how they print their name.  We are trying to use lowercase letters except for the first one!  Your homework for this week is to have your child practice their name every night.  We also read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and made a craft in our visual journals.  The kids are bringing home their book orders and reading logs in their take home bags.  Please try to keep the ziploc bag in their backpack to use for notes and things.  If you are ordering a book order please return it by Sept. 20.  Also, it is supposed to be cold and rainy again tomorrow so please dress your child warmly for recess.  Have a great night:)

Ms. New
