January Presentations- Due January 25th

Yesterday I sent home the outline for our January Presentations. This one is one of my favorites! The kids will be presenting on what they want to be when they grow up! :) Feel free to be creative.

If you notice, at the bottom of the paper, it encourages you to use index cards or cue cards for kids to read off of as notes. Please do not use the outline paper during the presentation. Some of the kids don't need notes at all, and that's fine! Index cards for each line can help remind them of what to say.

Also notice that the outline mentions your child's "visual" they bring can be an outfit they wear to represent what they want to be when they grow up! Again, have fun with this and enjoy practicing with your child. Each month we are blown away at how great they are! Let me know if you have any questions :)

Jackets, please!!

Just a reminder to PLEASE send a jacket with your child each day. Even though the weather is cold, we still go outside for recess. On days when the wind chill is below 40degrees, we only stay outside for 15minutes instead of the full 30. As cold as it is, we still try to give the kids a chance to run out some of their energy :)

We will do our best to make sure jackets get returned home to you. Many times, the kids stuff their jackets at the back of their cubby because they don't want to wear it home- no matter how many reminders. A simple reminder to your child or a quick reminder email to me can help your jackets from being lost.

Red Reading Folders

I know usually Red Reading Folders come home on Mondays. Starting back after the break can be really tricky. We are moving around reading groups as well as collecting and swapping books. Please hang in there and be patient with me as we are getting things organized this week. Red Reading Folders will be coming home NEXT Monday! Thank you!

Please continue to read with your child at home. Even if you don't have leveled books at home on your child's reading level, having your child listen to you reading benefits them greatly with fluency and comprehension. You can also have your child practice their sight words and finding those words in stories.

Please sign up below to help teachers out for lunch and recess duty for the month of January!!
