Rumpus Costume Information: Students will need to wear a t-shirt with these specific colors for their roles in the play. The T-shirt needs to be clear of any writing (can be turn around or inside out so no writing is displayed). If you do not have a t-shirt of this specific color at home, please don't worry about running out and buying one, we have MANY extras from years past that learners can borrow (please let me know if your learner will need to borrow one).
Colors for Rumpus:
Jaguar-orange, yellow or animal print
Explorers-white with khaki shorts
*Black colored shorts or pants is best or any other dark colors for everyone except explorers.
Dictado for next week:
“What are we going to do in math this week?” asked Kate. “This week we will review area and perimeter,” replied Ms.Triller. “I am so excited!” shouted Ethan.
Have a wonderful weekend and please let me know if you have any questions,
