Back to school…

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

The “Can Do” Kids go back to school in September. Some of them are looking forward to school starting and others, like Hector, wish summer would last all year round.

How do you feel about going back to school? Name three  things you like about going back to school and three things you don’t like about school.

Are these some of the things you need to buy for school? What else do you need?

  • Shoes
  • Notebook and pencils
  • Ruler
  • Crayons

Teacher Pat wants to know…did you finish all the books on your reading list ?  Will your teacher ask you to write about what you read over the summer?

Have a great school year !
