February 12th at 12:05. That day we will be exchanging valentines with one another. Please have your child bring their valentines by 8:30 that day or before, and have them sign his/her name on each card so that whomever receives it will know who it is from. This is a good opportunity for students to practice reading and writing their classmates' names.
Names: Sophie, Allyson, Jaylee, Jarrin, Zoe, Brooklyn, Taylor, Drew, Rylan, Julian, Eli, Wyatt, Megan, Natalie, Isaac, Layne, Zaiden, Savannah, Jordyn
If these nights or times do not work with your schedule please let me know. I would be happy to meet with you on a different day if needed.
If I have not heard from you, I will send a note home with a date and time for your conference.
Thanks so much!

1. Why did you yell at my cat?
2. I see your dog by the green rug.
Nightly Reading: Our February reading goal is to read 300 minutes. Students will receive a pizza certificate for reaching their reading goal this month.
Counting: Practice counting with your child by 10's, 5's, and 2's beginning at zero all the way to 120! Have your child write these number patterns.
What can I reinforce at home?
Don’t forget that students have vocabulary cards in their pencil pouches in their PAWS
folders. Please practice these often. Have them use the word in a sentence or even
have them write the word forming a complete sentence.
Math: We will begin to transfer our addition skills into subtraction.
Pathways: We will be working on words that end in ks or x.
Please have your child bring a HEAVY coat, hat, and gloves to school each day. If your child brings snow boots to school they will be able to play in the snow.
