Thankful for Our Little Turkeys

We are so thankful for your little kiddos!  They make us so happy.  They really keep us on our toes, too!  We are also so thankful for our Kindergarten families.  We couldn't do everything that we do at school without your support.  You follow up on things that the kids are learning at school by helping with homework and also by reading our newsletter and reviewing skills at home.  One great example of your support is our Turkeys in Disguise project.  The kids brought in the most darling creations!  You can check out the costumed creatures below.  Enjoy!

The kids have worked very hard learning the consonant sounds.  They've been trying to stretch words and hear all the sounds...including the vowels.  Here's a song that we've been using in class - Vowel Bat.  It's a big hit with the kids!
