Mrs. Kennedy's Friday Letter

January 29th

This week in Room 7

The Penguins have arrived and we are excited to learn all about our them! We will do most of this project at school, but I'd like them to print some research and pictures of their penguin at home if possible. Everyone needs to bring in one piece of poster board or $0.50 and they can buy one in the office. This week we have been learning how to use our researched information without plagiarizing.

We are writing about what it would be like to live in a snow-globe. I need everyone to bring in hats, gloves, and scarves next week for a fun project we will do to go along with our stories.

Most of us are mastering counting change pretty well. If your child is still struggling with this you can help at home! Put a group of change in a baggie and practice counting different combinations with them.

Other School New

Math Facts and AR

Please remember the goal is to read at least 20 minutes most nights AND to practice their Math Facts. This practice at home makes such a difference in their success as a learner.
