Happy FEBRUARY!!!

February is such a pretty month! I love seeing hearts and red and pink everywhere!

## Social Studies Focus This Week:

We will work in our Maps,Globes,and Graphs book as well as preparing for the IOWA test.

## Student Wish List

I've just added the first 10 books in a new series of flip and solve dry erase math books. We are in need of skinny dry erase Expo markers for students to use with these books. Our class will be so appreciative of any donations!

Mrs. Trettin sent us a 4pack last week and they were perfect for these books! (Thanks Mrs. Trettin!)

## Scholastic Book Orders

Students LOVE getting scholastic books! Their faces light up! Please look at Scholastic to encourage a love of books. NOW is the time to get your kids excited about reading. They have great books for as little as \$1. Some students don't understand why book boxes come and some get books, but they don't. I hope each student gets at least one book order this year! You also help our class earn points for classroom books! You can order online with my class code (link above) or send the flyer order form and a check.

Students earn classroom rewards with each book order.
