Art with Ms. Deas





This month’s Unit of study is All About Us. Now that your children have done an in-depth exploration of their senses and learned to explore the world around them, they are ready to learn more about themselves and the people around them.   We will be reading books based on feelings, friendships, and families. We encourage families to retell a favorite story from the past. This story could be a about the first time your child did something new or a funny story about an experience..etc.
