Dear Students and Parents,

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a nice weekend! We are so excited that we will be celebrating our 100th Day of Kindergarten this week!  We are officially 100 days smarter! We are also looking forward to a Valentine's Day celebration with our Class Parents!  We have been talking a lot about Lent and Ash Wednesday.  We will be receiving ashes on Wednesday.  Please speak with your child about this important day! 

Supplies are STILL needed for FEBRUARY!!! 
-CLOROX WIPES
-BABY WIPES
-PLASTIC CUPS
-GALLON OF WATER
-SKINNY CRAYOLA MARKERS
-TISSUES
-DONATIONS OF COPY PAPER
Thank you for all you do to help our class!

   **REMINDER!-I am asking that you please be aware your child is using the writing lines correctly when doing their homework!  Letters DO NOT FLOAT! We are going to be focusing a lot on lowercase letters and it is extremely important that they are able to recognize them as well as write them. Please also make sure that your child is not writing their letters from the "grass line" UP.  We have learned that letters all FALL DOWN....no matter what line they start on! 

**Some Information for You!**

-CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION MUST BE IN WRITING!
-Please label your child's (1) HEALTHY MORNING SNACK with the letter "M" on it.    
-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, 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:

MATH-
We will continue Chapter 8- Numbers 20 and Beyond.   We will be learning how to count these numbers by 10s! We will also be working with hundreds charts!   Remind your child, when they see a full 10 frame, to circle it and write 10 on the top!  Please do not stop practicing number recognition with your child.  Reversals are normal, but the more they practice writing the numbers, the better they will be! They should also know that when writing numbers, they all touch the sky and grass lines!  As this math may be new to some of you, as well as the terminology, please do not hesitate to contact me if you find yourself, or your child confused in any way! I am here to help all of you!

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!
