Each week will be devoted to a letter of the alphabet, in order from A to Z. There will also be a nursery rhyme each week.  A packet will be sent home every week with ideas and worksheets for each letter.

These subjects are not set in stone, and may change a little each month, especially in the spring. The weather also may create a change of plans. Every month we learn about one or two colors, and follow the weather, seasons and holidays:
