MARCH madness....and news!

Reading: It's READ across AMERICA week! Yippy! We are celebrating the life of Dr. Seuss all week long. His birthday is tomorrow and our class will participate in READ across AMERICA (which means we will read for 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes long) Kids will set a goal and try to reach it. Kids who reach their goal will receive a CERTIFICATE. Feel free to stop in from 9-10am tomorrow and join us for any amount of time.
WE are working on "READ to self" strategies!
*Get started right away
