• Dear Families,                                                                                                                                                                   

    February is a short month, but it is a very busy one!
    We are still learning lots of new things! Talk with your children about what you see on the newsletter. Please talk with them about the importance of listening to adults at school, especially during safety drills. We must do all we can to keep them safe! Also, please help your child do family projects and weekly homework. Our shape charts are not complete because not enough samples of shapes have come in for us to get started. Take a look at the newsletter for this month to see what is going on at school. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. Thanks for sharing your child and family with us!                                                                                                                                                                                                ~3K Staff

    Weekly Homework:

    Look for pictures of objects of different shapes and send them in!









    We are still working on Thinking Maps. It will take us a while to finish our study of shapes, so feel free to work ahead and send them in. Please take a look at the chart to see what we are learning each week, and send in pictures, drawings, small objects, or magazine clippings that show the shape we are learning each week. Don’t just look for plain shapes; look for THINGS that are the shape. See below for ideas:
