What's Happening This Week?
It is also our student teacher, Jenny Browne's, last day on Friday. We've had a great time with her and wish her luck as she completes the rest of her degree! To celebrate, she will be bringing in a treat for the students on Friday. If your child has any food allergies, please contact either Mrs. Nellessen or Ms. Browne at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday.
You are still able to get Cricket Caughtchas from any teacher in the school. Simply follow our school rules of: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe and a teacher will give you one. If you save up enough, you may redeem them in the Cricket Caughtcha Store for some awesome prizes!

Handwriting: This week we will practice good handwriting skills in all of our lessons. Let's see if we can meet this week's goal of neat handwriting on every paper!
Adding double-digit numbers: This week we will practice adding two numbers that equal 100. Our goal this week is to get at least 90% of our math problems correct. Are you up for the challenge?
Sounding out words: This week we will practice sounding out words during reading time. We will spend extra time on the different kinds of sounds vowels can make. The goal this week is to correctly say all the long and short vowel sounds. Make sure to bring your thinking caps!
