Our letter of the week was letter “J.” Some of our letter “J” words included: jellybean, jar, jeep, jack-o-lantern, Jack, John, jog, jelly fish, juice, jelly, and jungle. Throughout the week we read various books on weather and the four seasons. The children also discussed different types of clothes we wear during the different seasons.
