 Hello Grade One Families!

 I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!

 I am looking forward to this week and continuing to explore our units of study with the children. I enjoy listening to their ideas and watching them interact with each other, especially during play time and data collection time. They love to chat, visit and learn about each other!
