We started the year out by spending some time getting to know each other. I shared my All About Me bag with the class today. After sharing an Eiffel Tower key chain we used Google Maps to "visit" the tower and look around the city of Paris. Ask your kiddo about this. If you haven't played around with Google Maps I encourage you to give it a try! There are photo spheres for millions of different places that allow you to get a 360 degree view of destination all over the world.
Isn't technology wonderful?!?!
On Thursday we read the book First Day Jitters. It is about a girl named Sara that is nervous about her first day at a new school. Ask your student to share with you about the surprise ending! After reading the book we made our own "Jitter Juice" to help calm any first day jitters that we may have had.
Please don’t forget that school is released EARLY every Monday! We will dismiss at 3:10 every
Monday. ALSO... Your student brought home their own All About Me bag to fill with items they want to share with our class. Look for it (along with more directions) in their backpack. Students will begin sharing their bags on Monday!
Please make special note of a nut allergy that we have in our classroom. You will want to keep this in mind when you purchase snack for your child’s helper days. Please avoid foods with any type of nuts. Thank you!
