We have just finished reading "Olga Da Polga" and have started the "Pippi Longstocking" series. The children are really enjoying the adventures of Pippi. We are spending a lot of time reviewing and discussing Pippi's inappropriate behavior and lack of safety during the readings. I am enjoying this particular group of children, as they are eager and happy to listen to the readings and share their thoughts.

Our weekly journal writing and our recently started handwriting has been progressing and developing nicely during the afternoon. The children are excited with each new journal page.

We are currently trying to squeeze in our last few nature walks before the weather changes. The children particularly enjoyed this past walk to collect pine cones for a special project. First, the children wrote a picture/story paper to their family and then decorated a pine cone. I hope you all enjoyed your special story and pine cone from your child.

With peace,
