Sight Words

Sight Words: is, have, play, go, to, see, the, we, me, that, this, you, of, for, from, I, a, here, will, and, come, in

We will be practicing and writing these sight words in class. Now we are starting to build small sentences with these sight words. We begin each sentence with a capital letter and end it with a period.

Math

More adding and subtracting and writing math sentences.

Science/Social Studies

In Science/Social Studies we are learning about

animal habitats

seasons

plants

Maps/directions

Folders

Please continue to check your child's folder and remove papers nightly. This way it is easier to see what information is coming to me from you and vice versa.

Homework Packets

Your child will have a homework packet on Tuesday nights. It will be due back the following Monday.

Reading to your child for at least 20 minutes a night is part of homework.

Please make sure that your child completes and turns in homework each week as it is for a grade.

Behavior

The behavior chart is based on color. Please make sure to check your child's behavior chart each day. If their behavior shows that they need to improve, please have a conversation with them about being a good listener at school.

The students can now move back up a color if they change their behavior and start making good choices. So even though your child might make it to green or yellow they now have an incentive to turn around their day and start making good choices. They don't have to stay on a low color anymore!!

Purple - Great Day!

Blue - Had a warning - but still a good day.

Green - had more than one warning - listening needs to improve.

Yellow - had several warnings.

Orange - Not being a good listener/following directions

Red - Not being a good listener/following directions - tomorrow will be better!

Movie Night

Movie Night will be Friday, February 26, 2016 from 6pm - 8pm.

The movie will be either G rated or PG rated.

Admission is $3.00 per person.

Come join TOTMA for the fun!!

Book Fair

TOTMA is having a book fair in the Library - going on right now!

What a great chance to support our school and your child's reading!

Come by and browse...or send money to school with your child and Ms. Sanah will take h/her to the book fair during school hours.
