Our first three days...

We had a GREAT first three days of school so far! We have learned how to use our crayons, pencils, glue sticks, and scissors! We've also learned our class rules and procedures...AND we all visited the class Treasure Box! It's easy to see why all 19 students fell asleep at rest time each day! We are off to an excellent start!
