Friendship Party on February 14th:
The Friendship Parties this year will be held on Thursday, February 14th from 2:15 to 3:00 p.m. Information from room parents has been sent home regarding volunteers.
Students will be participating in a Valentine Exchange with their classmates. We have 21 students in our classroom. Please note that students may NOT distribute Valentines that include food, candy, or balloons. I have no preference as to whether your student writes a name in the "To: Space". I only ask that if your child bring Valentines, they provide enough for the entire class.
If you have any specific questions, please contact me.
Yearbooks Are on Sale
Some items that we need and brainstormed together are:
boxes (any size cereal, pop tart, cracker, mac and cheese etc..)
toilet/paper towel rolls
magazines (child appropriate)
bags from kroger, marsh, etc..
If there is anything else you would like to send in, we would love to have it!!
Thanks so much for your help with this! We will collect these items all year long!
Please consider sending a snack to school with your child each day. Our approved list (to keep all of our Cardinals safe - especially those living with food allergies) include:
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish
We appreciate donations for our students that are without a snack, as well. Thank you for considering!

We are Learning
We also started Book Clubs. The students were able to select their books of their own interest as well as partners that they enjoy being with as well. These book clubs will also help with our reading fluency as the students are reading to one another. They can also help each other with comprehension and other literary techniques.
Repeated Sort: Students will sort their words. Then check their words using the answer key. Then sort their words again!
Draw and Label: Students choose 10 of their words. Then they will draw a picture of each world and label it.
Blind Sort: Using given guide words, or headers, students spell or write in words in the correct category as a partner calls each word aloud without showing it.
Writing Sort: Students write their words under the correct category.
Speed Sort: Students sort words quickly under the correct categories (use a timer to see how fast they can do it!) Students love to beat records and to set goals for themselves.
Word Hunt: Students hunt through their own reading and writing for words that are additional examples of the sound, pattern, or meaning unit they study!
Buddy Sort: Using the given headers, students sort their words with a partner, then discuss. They will then check their work with their answer key.
