Greetings! As an annual event, the transitional first-grade class and the first- and second-grade combination class at Florence-Carlton School in Florence get together to learn about the Peanuts comic strip and gain appreciation for the man who created it all, Charles Schultz. The children have loved this week of activities. They were able to choose their favorite Peanuts character, produce creative drawing assignments, make a Snoopy to hang on the wall and write letters to the Schultz family. We also enjoyed a Peanuts video and shared books. Good grief, we sure had fun this week. It was Snoopendous!
