This month the theme is families. The children will be learning the letters I, S, Q, and X in language. For math, they will be learning the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3 and learning about triangle and heart shapes. The colors for the month are red and pink. The classrooms have been busy learning about families and how each member of the family is important. Families can be big or small. Anyone can be apart of a person’s family, a family is love.
