We ended our week with a lesson about George Washington and our Independence Day--July 4th, 1776.

First Day of Happy Feet!

An exciting first two weeks!

We have had such a wonderful first two weeks! Our students are already getting into the swing of our classroom routine and we couldn't be more proud! They have explored the classroom, worked together, and are excited about the jobs they are doing. We have also celebrated Jakson and Ayaana's birthday! Not only did the children get to eat cupcakes, they also helped make them with Ms. Zehra. We will be posting pictures periodically so please keep checking the blog!
