Just a few reminders:
**Changes in transportation MUST be in writing.
**Your child will be coming home with a folder each day. Please be sure to go through the folder and take out any notices that may be in there.
Please be sure to send in one HEALTHY snack for your child. Please also send in a drink with their lunch and a spoon, if needed. Please try to refrain from sending in peanut butter with your child.
The children have started to practice writing their name (the first letter of their name should only be capitalized). Please give them practice at home with this, as well.
Each week our class page will be updated. This will give you information about what we will be learning in class, important events, due dates, field trips, etc. The sidebar on the left will be updated with useful links to websites for you and your child, as well as our calendar. At the bottom of the web page, you will find our special schedule.

When writing, please only use pencil......unless otherwise noted.
Practice letters and their sounds.

Reading:  
This week, we will continue Unit 1 in Fundations. This unit lasts approximately 12 weeks. We will also be working on letters and practicing how to write our name. Please give your child as much practice writing as possible. All letters should be touching lines. Directions will go home as to how children should specifically be writing letters. Please note sight words for the week. I suggest writing all sight words on index cards and reviewing with your child. The more they see them, the more quickly they will recognize them.

We did a lot of writing for Christmas. The children created a project with the sentence starter, "If Santa got stuck in my chimney, I would...." They came up with great answers.
We also read How The Grinch Stole Christmas and the children wrote how they could get the grinch to grin.
Letters of the week: x, y
Sight words of the week: and, have, of
*****Please have your child practice writing their name each night.

Math: 
We will continue Chapter 5-Addition. Children will learn that add means to join more. They will also learn a + and = sign. Continue to practice counting and writing numbers correctly.
Have your child practice counting real life objects at home. We have learned that numbers should touch the top (sky line) and bottom (grass line) and not float. Please have your child practice writing numbers 1-10 as much as possible.
