The sun has come out this week, and we have loved getting to go outside! Thank you for sending in rainboots for muddy days and slippers for inside the classroom. Also, thank you for sending your child in shoes that they can take on and off by themself. That is incredibly helpful! =)

We have enjoyed learning about the solar system and discussing living and non-living. Several of the kiddos have made a solar system map, and many more are lined up to make one next. We painted the solar system in enrichment, and will display our model in the classroom. Models are so much more special when the children take a part in creating them!

JBMA is collecting box tops now, so send any you may have in an envelope in your child's orange folder. Also, please make sure that you have read the school's email about the solar eclipse Monday. We will not be able to take the kiddos out at all between 11:30 and 3, so please keep that in mind if you would like your child to view the eclipse.

Our week i…
We have had a wonderful week in primary! The returning children have jumped right back into their work, and our new friends haven't missed a beat. We have had many grace and courtesy lessons, and the children have been learning our 2 ground rules: Respect all living things and respect the environment.

Though it has been a rainy week, we have had happy and meaningful days in the classroom! I am grateful to have such an amazing group of kiddos! Next week we will dive into our studies of the solar system, and we have many beautiful works that I cannot wait to share with the children.
Please be mindful of the weather, and pack rainboots if it has been raining a bunch through the week. Our playground is very shady and gets pretty muddy! Also, please be sure that your child has slippers to wear in the classroom.  This helps with our second ground rule: respect the environment.  Thank you! Have a wonderful weekend.
