Please consider becoming involved in our wonderful PTO at Standing Bear. This unique organization does so much for our children. Also, if you would like to help in our room periodically, please pick up a form at the office for a background check. I would love to have an extra pair of hands anytime in Room 4.

Beginning math skills will include number recognition to 10, rote counting to 20, shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, square) and patterns (two or three-part). We will discuss attributes in objects, such as sorting by color, shape size, etc.
