Dear Parents and Students,

Happy Monday! We have such an exciting week ahead! 1st Grade will be celebrating the 100th DAY OF SCHOOL on Monday!  I cannot believe how fast these days have gone.  It has been amazing watching them grow from Kindergarten to now :)
We are also excited about celebrating Valentine's Day.  The class parents have a special treat for us on Wednesday and we will be exchanging valentines with our class on Thursday.  (Valentine's Boxes are due TUESDAY!)
I sent a Remind last week about the supplies your child needs- Crayola basic and bright color markers!  They will need a pack of both.  Also, any donation of glue sticks and Clorox wipes are GREATLY appreciated :) Please ask your child if he/she needs new crayons! Please send those in as well.

The children are doing an great job copying their homework into their agendas!  It is VERY important that their agenda comes to school with them every day (except Mondays!- I will be collecting them on Fridays to make sure that they have them for Monday!)

**Some Information for You!**

-Your child will need one (1) HEALTHY morning snack every day! Some examples are yogurt, fruit, granola bar, pretzels, Goldfish, Cheerios, etc! They will also need to bring their own water bottle each day.  The only thing they can drink at snack time is water! This should be in a bottle with a sports top or pop up straw (tops that screw off often make spills that we try to avoid!) 
-Please refrain from sending your child to school with peanut butter as we have a few children with severe allergies.
- Remind your child about the importance of staying safe in our classroom.  This means we keep our hands on our own bodies and we raise our hand to leave our seats.
- Remind them to ALWAYS ask for help.  
-Remember to have fun while learning!

This week in 1-2:


We will finish up Chapter 5- Addition and Subtraction Relationships.  We will continue learning about fact families. We will now learn how to decide if we should add or subtract.  I am very proud of how hard they have been working.  We will have a test on Chapter 5 this week! 

*Please be sure Doubles Facts and Friends of Ten Facts are still being practiced EVERY NIGHT until they are memorized.  Having these facts memorized will make future math concepts a lot easier!
