Today was our day of full meetings before school starts on Monday
August 26th.

We discussed curriculum.  Our district worked very hard to create our curriculum this summer.

Katie was a member of the council that worked part of their summer.
What a great job they did.  Congratulations to the entire council!!

We have Meet the Teacher Night tomorrow night!!
Lots to do tomorrow!

Just a quick unit for Alphabet Review to start the year.
Then of course we do a more thorough study of the sounds of letters in the weeks to follow.

Let's Find Letters!

Busy! Busy! Busy!
I know everyone is busy.
Some of you have started with kids
and some are getting ready for school
to start!
This is the time of year I don't know
which way to turn or what to do first!!

We have finished a short color pack!
It helps with color word retention and 
recognizing things that are those colors!

I did go to my classroom this morning

7:45 am.  Thank you to my thoughtful husband
for helping me get the heavy stuff moved before he
went to work this morning!
