We are continuing with our unit on winter.   We read the story, Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?  by Eric Carle.  We then made our own version, which is titled Snowman, Snowman What Do You See?  The students really enjoyed making one themselves.   We talked about Groundhog Day.  We did a fun project about it.

We are learning the letter Pp and the sound that it makes.   We looked at pictures of a pumpkin, penguins, pancakes, and popcorn.  They all begin with the letter Pp.   We also did many activities to learn about this letter and its sound.  Please work on this with your child at home.
