We had a wonderful week with lots of learning! The children enjoyed learning from book illustrator Michael P. White ( http://www.michaelpwhite.com/). They enjoyed a hands on drawing lesson learning some new ways to draw fun, life filled characters. It was great!
We have lots to do this week. Here are some highlights for our week:

Phonics Focus: Qq/ sound and letter focus. We are also working with vowels and the sounds they make.
