Monday, we had our first assembly. Barney Sue came to talk to us about bus safety.

Also on Monday, we had our first day with inside recess. If its raining or cold, we will have recess in our classroom. The choices on Monday were legos, big blocks at carpet, and smaller blocks and math manipulatives at tables. The kids were awesome - one of the other teachers even told me how fabulous they were!

During Social Studies this week, we are learning the Pledge of Allegiance. We have read a book explaining the meaning of the pledge and worked on learning the colors of our flag. When your child knows the pledge, they get to sign our poster that says "We know the Pledge of Allegiance."
One of our big focuses right now is handwriting. We are writing letters and numbers. Today, we worked on C and c. We used individual white boards at our seats, and the kids seemed to enjoy it!
We are continuing to work on letter and number recognition, the Pledge of Allegiance, and we are talking about characters.
