Dear Parents and Students,

 I hope you all had a nice weekend.  We have been working so hard on our "How To" writing!  We will be getting to our final copy this week!  I cannot wait for you to read your child's story with them! We are also learning a lot about the Solar System as we prepare for our field trip! (More information will be sent home soon)
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.

Mrs. Kahn sent directions to every family regarding the project for Catholic School's Week!  Please let me know if you have any questions regarding how to create your family wordle! 

Family photos for the CSW mural need to be sent in ASAP.
Thank you!

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 begin Chapter 5- Addition and Subtraction Relationships.  We will begin by making models to help us solve math problems. I am very proud of how hard they have been working.  

*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!

Spelling Words: too, very, also, some, come, fangs, thinks, rings, lungs, songs

Skill: Making Predictions

We will continue our unit on the Solar System.  We will be learning about the phases of the moon as well as Earth and Mars this week.  We will also be learning about stars and their constellations. 

We will be learning about Jesus and his Apostles this week. 

If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me!  E-mail is a great way to get in touch with me, but you can always call the main office and leave me a message.  I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Here's to a great year!
