Kindergarten: This was our letter Ii week even though it was a short week! We talked about the first Thanksgiving and read many Thanksgiving books. We discussed about how much we have and how thankful we are. Happy Thanksgiving!

Grade 2: We have been working on making change in math and in reading we are working with the ar, arm, and ark phonograms. We are practicing our numbers in Spanish and in science we are discussing "Living Things of the Past."
