Dolphin Swimmers - Literature Session One
During this session, we will be reading books with color words in the titles!
These books will introduce the class to a variety of authors and illustrators.

Dolphin Swimmers do not have weekly Literature homework.
Occasionally, I may ask students to bring something to class, or wear something theme-specific, but I will give adults at least one week notice if something is requested.
I will send home a note, put the information on the homework section of the ODE website, and post it on the ODE Facebook page.
