As we continue our theme, “In The City, In The Country”, we will shift our
focus this week from the country to the city as we explore the hustle and
bustle of city life. Queenie Queen and Mr. Q make an appearance this week as we
learn all about the letter Q. Queenie
Queen is quiet and quick to learn, while Mr. Q is curious and full of questions
that he likes to ask to help him learn.
In math, we will revisit the number “5”.
In conjunction with our theme, we will continue learning about money (pennies,
nickels, dimes, and quarters) to identify and sort coins, and explore the use
and meaning of currency and coins.
