Children assigned should take at least five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Jimena (Prek”A”) and Paula(Prek”B”).

***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share eatable things for 22 friends such as rosquillas, raisins, raspberry, rice, ravioli, reese’s, ruffles, ritz cookies, etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit.
