“Little pig, little pig, won’t you let me come in?" 🐺 "No, no, no, not by the hair on my chinny, chin, chin." 🐷 "Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in." 🐺

4K students at Star Center Elementary School had fun reading The Story of the Three Little Pigs 📖💛

During this time, students learned about all of the parts of a story! The 4K students know who the characters are, where the story takes place, and the sequence of the story.

Central-Denison Elementary School

Mrs. Mandli’s Kindergarten Class at Central-Denison Elementary School played a new twist on the game "headbands". Each kindergartener had a sight word on their headband while the class walked around to print the words that they read on their friends' heads. By the end, students could figure out what word was on their head because there was only one word left! Such a fun learning game!
