On a classroom note- we are working hard to start getting our schedule in place and are have started working with our math journal. Today we got our Tool Kits and our pattern block templates. The kiddos got a chance to experiment with them and made some very cool pictures. We also played a game called Monster Squeeze which is helping us to review the concept larger than and smaller than. Your child is bringing home a copy of the game to play at home with you. Enjoy!
