Welcome Back!!

Summer seems to have came and went pretty quickly this year. The nice, cooler weather was a nice change to the hot, humid weather, but it put a damper on some of my pool days with my kids. We started this year talking about summer camp and things we didm this summer. 

You may have noticed books and visuals coming home regarding this theme. These materials are part of the Unique Curriculum that we will be using throughout the school year. The curriculum follows grade level standards as well as the Ohio Academic Content Standards-Extended. (Clinking on the links will get you additional information about these materials.) We will also be doing a daily journal (binder) that will be sent home each day where the students will 'tell' about their day. Look for this to start in the next week or so. It will be picture bases so that the students can help 'tell' about his/her day. 

I have posted the newsletter for September on the Newsletter tab as well as sent home a hard copy. Be sure to check it out as it has important dates, themes for the month, and my contact information.

If you have not done so already, please return the photo/video permission form and the donors choose permission form. I would like to use the next couple weekends to start posting pictures of our classroom activities so I need those forms back ASAP.

Look for pictures of our first couple weeks soon!!
Have a great week!
