Halloween Pictures to Enjoy

Halloween was a fun event at Francis Wyman as usual.  The kids had a great time participating in the parade and the teacehrs had even more fun dressing up as the vowel characters found in FUNdations.  Who knows?  Maybe it will help them all remember their short vowel sounds!  Click on the Halloween page to the right to view the fun photos from the day!

Parent Teacher Conferences
A reminder listing the date and time for your conference will be going home on Monday, 11/8.  Please let me know immediately if that time does not work for you and I can try to schedule you for a few of the times that are still available.  Also, please know that we only 15 minutes on the day of the conference, but if you ever need to discuss anything further we can always schedule additional meetings or telephone conferences.

Yoga Resources:
A few parents have requested that I list the yoga resources that I use in the classroom with the children, so I have created a Yoga Resources page to the right.  Just click on this page and access the titles of books, CD's, supplies and articles on the benefit of yoga for children.
