**This week we will be learning about the consonant letter Jj and its sound as in jump and jar. Instead of the usual Show & Tell we are asking that students tell a joke to the class rather than show a Jj item. If you do not know a joke, you could do an internet

search for kids’ jokes and riddles, look for a joke book at the library or local bookstore, or check out the Mini page jokes in the newspaper. Be prepared to laugh your way through the week!
