Marc Shares A special Book

Marc shared a funny book called “The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate The Wash”. It is a very special book since it was written by his aunt, Trinka Hakes Noble. After the story we drew snakes and made some out of clay. Enjoy the story below at home!20141026-191116.jpg

P.E.!

Every Tuesday morning we will have P.E. (Physical Educational) class. Every week The Guppies (Ms. Lydia’s class) will join us. Most of time the middle school P.E. Teacher, Ms. Meaghan will lead us and sometimes we will be able to work on skills with our big friends from the 7th grade!
