Please remember that Wednesday is an early release day for teacher training. We will be dismissing at 11:30 for Primary. PLEASE make arrangements for your kids and if you make any changes please put them in the PLANNER for easy access.
We ask that parents do not have lunch with their kiddos on that day. Also, on early release days I know most of you eat after you pick your kiddos up but…if you don’t send some small something with them we have to send them through the line for a lunch.
Valentines is coming up and I/we need help with a few items for our kids. If anyone could help me with white paper bags with handles on them that would be great! If you can, please text me or email me. I also need things to decorate the bags like stickers, heart doilies, etc… anything the kids can use to decorate their bags would help tremendously!!! Also, keep in mind we will be doing a valentine exchange for every student in the class 🙂
Spelling words for the next two weeks: some, so, these, would, other, into, has, more, her, two
Phonics: We are working on verbs this week and showing them how to tie in nouns, adjectives, and verbs in their writing.
Math: hour and half hour on clocks. We also will start coins with identifications and values. We continue to work on addition, subtraction, and problem solving
Writing: We are focusing on re-reading to revise and edit. This simply means they are going back over their story when they are done and re-reading it to check for left out words, making sure sentences make sense, looking for punctuation and capitals after punctuation, and making sure they have spelled no-excuse words correctly (I am giving spelling grades on their writing).
Science/Social Studies: We are continuing our study on Penguins. Next week is the 100th day of school and Groundhog day so it’ll be busy but FUN!
If anyone would like to volunteer to be room mother for our class party, I would appreciate it! This is one easier to plan! Please let me know if you’re willing!

January 25- Early Student Release at 11:30
