Week of October 23

This week, we will learn about community helpers such as firefighters, police officers, teachers, doctors and nurses. We will read stories about how people in a community help each other. We are also learning the letter P. We will practice naming the letter, saying the letter sound, and make a list of things that begin with the letter P.


Pajama Day:

We will have a pajama day this Friday to celebrate the letter P. Please see the letter in your child’s folder explaining more about this fun day!
