This week in Writing:
We are continuing our EXPERT books on our Wyoming animals. All of our research is complete. Our books look great so far. The kids are enjoying the FLIP book and are making the smooth transfer from lines to no lines. Today we worked on capital VS lowercase. I told the kids that we are working really hard to turn our letters little and lowercase. They did a nice job today and will be working on that this week.

Thursday is St. Patrick's day. Kindergarten will hopefully outDRESS the school with fun assortments of green. Be creative if your child wants to participate. We will be parading through the school before lunch. They may wear hats, necklaces, sunglasses or anything fun in the SPIRIT of St. Patrick's day. The kids will learn more about Ireland and the luck of eloquence. And you never know...Loulou-the leprechaun might show up...you never know!
Friday is my birthday and I will be bringing cupcakes to share. YUM.
Please let me know if you plan on being out in the next 2 weeks.
Only 12 more days 'til Spring break...where are you headed?
