I hope you all had a wonderful week. We had a chance to look walk around the community and see what we could find.  I look forward to creating our own community next week!  I will supply a paper bag, or your child can bring in a box (approximately the size of shoebox.)  They can also bring extra supplies if they want.  Please bring in by Monday if interested. 

Ask your child:

  • To describe how they created their “green frog.” What did they use to make it bumpy?
  • What is the number to call in case of an emergency? What are 2 good examples of when to call this number? What are 2 times we should not call this number?
  • Where is a good family meeting spot that is outside, if there is ever a fire?
  • To say your mom’s first name. How many beats or syllables to her name? Say it!…clap it!…stamp it!…tap your head!…count the beats!.  Can you do this to one other family member’s name – and yes it can be a pet.  :O)
  • Is it okay to make mistakes? Why does Mrs. Evans sometimes say “Congratulations!” when someone give an incorrect answer? (Hint:  They leraned!)

Memory Verse:  “Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest.” – Nelson Mandela
