Two Secret Readers!!

This week we were lucky enough to have two secret readers!!  On Wednesday, we welcomed a grandmother of one of the Kindergartners.  She read us the book Corduroy by Don Freeman.  This is a favorite of many young children as well as her own granddaughter.  On Friday, we had a big sister of one of our Kindergartners read to us.  She read us the book Red Sled by Lita Judge.  It is a very funny book that they enjoy reading at their house. It was a special treat since this big sister used to be in my Kindergarten class a few years ago. Thank you so much to both of these secret readers!

Post Office Field Trip

Today we went on a walking field trip to the West Brattleboro Post Office.  The weather was beautiful, we couldn't have asked for a nicer day during the third week in February!  The Kindergartners each wrote a letter to their families, purchased a stamp from Holly and mailed it.  We got to cancel our stamp, get a tour of the post office and helped Holly wait on the customers.  It was a great time!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Wow, what a day!  Literacy breakfast in the morning and Valentine's Day in the afternoon!  The Kindergartners had such fun opening all of their valentine cards and celebrating with treats this afternoon!  Thank you to all the parents who organized the party! It was such a special day to share together with the ones we love!

Literacy Breakfast

This morning we had a wonderful literacy breakfast!  Thank you so much to all of the parents and grandparents who attended this event! Each child was given a copy of their favorite fairy tale and enjoyed breakfast in the classroom.  It was so exciting to have our families, teachers and even Sarah (our intern from last semester) here to spend time with us!
