Monday was our first day of school!  We spent a lot of our day establishing routines and getting the kiddos ready to be back!

Perhaps our kiddos' favorite activity this week was making Magic Playdough; a great idea we found from A Cupcake from the Teacher.  

They also enjoyed working on our Back to School centers / activities.    

We also started setting up our Daily 5 routines this week.  We primarily focused on reading habits.  Next week we will launch "Read to Self."  

We hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
