Dear Students and Parents,
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!
Supplies are needed for February:
-Gallon of water
-Classic Color Crayola Markers
-Donation of copy paper
The children have been doing wonderfully on their spelling tests. Please remember to study their sight words with them each night. Also, it is just as important for your child to be able to write their sight words as it is to read them! We will be starting to use sight words to compose sentences, so please practice putting these words together to help them read/write sentences.
Please remember to check our class web page for any news and updates about what is going on in our class! Also be sure to check our school website and calendar for any important updates!
-CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION MUST BE IN WRITING!
-Please label your child's HEALTHY MORNING SNACK with the letter "M" on it.
- Remind your child about the importance of staying safe in our classroom. This means we keep our hands on our own bodies, we sit criss-cross applesauce, hands in our laps, and we raise our hand to leave our seats.
- Remind them to ALWAYS ask for help.
-Please practice writing their name (first and last) with only the first letters being uppercase letters.
- When writing, please ONLY use pencil! Unless the directions say to color, we ONLY write with pencil :)
**PRACTICE LETTER/SOUND RECOGNITION EVERY DAY!!**
-Remember to have fun while learning!
This week in K-2:
We will finish up Chapter 8- Number 20 and Beyond. The children will be learning how to show these numbers on a 50 and 100 chart. We will be looking for patterns to help us learn about 10 more and 10 less. Remind them that when they see a set of ten, they should circle it and write 10 on top. This helps reinforce that they should start counting from this number.They will be learning on two 10 frames to show these numbers. Please, please, please continue to practice number recognition with teen numbers. Remind your child, "When we write teen numbers, the 1 goes first!"
