We survived Week #1 and the kids did great! This is a wonderful bunch! We started by learning the letter U and it's short sound as in umbrella. We played a name game by trying to figure out who was hiding under the umbrella. We played several other games this week working on math skills, literacy skills and the all important social skills. Turn-taking, sharing, and playing by the rules were some important conversations we had this week. I encourage you to play a game with your child this weekend -- there are some valuable lessons to be learned -- especially that everyone has to lose every once and awhile. We ended the week with some extra time on the playground with our new friends and enjoying a yellow frosted balloon sugar cookie to remind us to "Be Brave" just like Daredevil Duck. Thank you all for a great first week!!
