Toodle-loo 2022 in Pre-K 2!
Good afternoon Pre-K 2 families,
I first want to take a moment to thank you all for the very generous gifts. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to teach your children and I am so appreciative for your support. Your children are amazing kiddos and I am looking forward to exploring more with them in the new year. 2023 here we come!
What a busy week! We had two visitors. Thank you to Mrs. Lehane for coming in to read us a story. The students were a very polite audience. Thank you also to Mrs. G for coming in to share her music with us. The children loved dancing and singing with the bells. We also did a STEM challenge using our Problem Solving Wheel. The children made a chair for Panda and a bed for Pigeon so they can have nice places to relax during our winter break.
