Leader in Me Conference
There will be one background (scenic), and they will take both a 3/4 shot and a close-up. There will be no retakes and they will not be coming back for students who are absent on Thursday.
Class photos will also be taken at that time.
The parents will get photo proofs like last fall, but they will not be in a booklet format. They will then bring in their photos whether they want to order photos or not.
There is also a yearbook order pamphlet that will be sent home next week.
If you have any other questions please contact the school office.
Spelling Words: how, now, down, our, out, round, would, could
1. How could I make a round box?
2. Would you get down from that tree?
Nightly Reading: Our February reading goal is to read 300 minutes. Students will receive a pizza certificate for reaching their reading goal this month.
Counting: Practice counting with your child by 10's, 5's, and 2's beginning at zero all the way to 120! Have your child write these number patterns.
What can I reinforce at home?
Don’t forget that students have vocabulary cards in their pencil pouches in their PAWS
folders. Please practice these often. Have them use the word in a sentence or even
have them write the word forming a complete sentence.
Math: We will have learned 3 ways to subtract: take from 10, count on, draw a picture and strike out.
Pathways: We will be working on the y sound at the beginning and end of words.
Please have your child bring a HEAVY coat, hat, and gloves to school each day. If your child brings snow boots to school they will be able to play in the snow.
