Hello again, and happy last day of summer to those reading this evening! The children are following the changing of the seasons, so remind them that Fall has arrived. The days are full and filled with lots of activity. In our numeracy block, we are learning how to extend and explain simple patterns, so please familiarize yourselves with the ideas on the sheet I sent home in the children’s back-packs today. I am including a copy of our daily routine, so as to give you an idea of what we do each and every day! A good Wednesday to you all and enjoy your first day of Autumn tomorrow!
