Literacy

We continued to work on ABC book this week. The children picked a theme and each book will have 26 thoughts that fit the theme. Over the break it would be helpful to brainstorm ideas that go with your child’s ABC theme.

We published two new Kriletown creations this week so keep your eye out for new books. Our goal continues to be 42 books by the end of the year!

We read and wrote about what it means to be thankful. Your children are so thoughtful. Some of the things they listed were parents, friends, good food, nice school and a cozy house. All great things to be thankful for!
