Mrs. Amanda’s Classroom

This week we had fun celebrating Easter and learning about the letter Q with queens and quilts.  It was so great to finally get to go outside for activities this week.  We sure enjoyed the sunshine while we got to have recess outside!

We will also focus on the numbers 19 and 20 this month.

Next Week/Reminders:

Next week we will be learning about the B.  Tuesday April 13th is our boot camp day and our day to wear your camo.

We still try to go outside if the weather allows.  Please make sure to send your child with a jacket, the weather does change throughout the day.

I encourage everyone to send in a water bottle.  We do not have a water fountain available because of COVID.

Have a great weekend!
