We worked on our postcards today. Your child will be bringing home four postcards. You can help us with this project by cutting apart the postcards, addressing them and mailing them to people who live in different states or countries.
We are so excited about getting mail and learning more about our world.
I was hoping to send home the Words Their Way homework today, but will send home the word and picture sorts tomorrow. I want to go through all the groups first before sending it home so the children are familiar with the pictures and sort.
We listened to a beautiful story this afternoon about a little girl who dreams of becoming a dancer like Janet Collins. The girl's mom tells her to not spend her time wishing on a star, but to work hard to achieve her dream. This is a really beautifully written and inspiring story. The book is called A Dance Like Starlight: A Dancer's Dream, by Kristy Dempsey. You can read this book online at :
You will need to set up an account to read the book, but it is free to join. This website has many good books to read with your child so you will want to bookmark it to return and read more!
Today we went to P.E. and learned the underhand throw. Ask me about the four steps to the underhand throw!
Have a nice evening!
