What a great month this has been! We got to start our new study about trees. We have learned so much about trees. What are the parts of trees? Who lives in trees? What food comes from trees? Who takes care of trees and What do trees need? We had an arborist come in and talk to us about trees and today we got to plant those trees. We hope that your student has been coming home talking about trees and what they know about them.

Thank you to those families that were able to join us for our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving feast. Take a look at the pictures on the photos page.

We have also been covering many social lessons about safety and how to identify others emotions. We leaned how to look for clues for how a person is feeling, how to tell if someone is angry, that people might have different feelings about the same things. We have also talked about what an accident is and how to fix it when we have an accident and how to show people that we care about their feelings. We have covered safety lessons about safe touches and  what to do is someone uses and unsafe touch.

Over the next few weeks we will be covering safety lessons about appropriate and inappropriate touches and how to deal with people who might try and touch our private parts. The safety rule we will teach students is; “A person should never touch my private body parts accept to keep me clean and healthy.” Please let us know if you have any questions about how we cover these lessons.
