First week Celebrations!

RAINBOW playdoughWow! What a busy and exciting week – cylcone and all! We definitely will not forget your first week of Prep in 2014. I am very proud of how well our class has settled into the new routine. The mornings have been pleasant with lots of play experiences with friends,  mums and dads. I am sure this will continue as we move into homework transition over the coming week. During week 2 I will continue our assessments and review each child individually so we can map out exactly where their learning needs are and future goals. More about goal setting in the not too distant future.

Boys and girls – Keep practising using your duck hands and speaking in speech sounds d/u/ck, p/a/n, s/i/p, s/i/t, p/a/n/t/s
