This Week:

Literacy : We learned about the letter "Oo". Please review its short sound with your child, such as, in the word "on". Please enjoy the booklet "Little Rob" with your child. We are learning about the words "of", "they" and "you". We have now learned the letters Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd, Ff, Ii, Kk, Mm, Nn, Oo, Pp, Rr, Ss, Tt. Our word wall words we have learned are: am, a, for, have, he, I, is, little, like, look, my, me, of, she, see, to, the, they, we, with, you.

Math: We continued deciding which number comes before or after a number from 1 to 10. We played "Build It/Change It" by changing the items on a tens frame to the new number. We also played "Double Compare" by adding 2 numbers together to see who has more.

100th Day of School

The 100th Day of School will be February 2, 2018 (unless we miss more days of school). I am asking the students to bring in 100 of the same item that can be counted and weighed. Please see the note and bag coming home today for directions. Thanks!

Valentine's Day

We will be having a Valentine's Day Party on Wednesday, February, 14th. If your child would like to bring in valentines for his/her classmates, please see the information coming home today with the students' names in our class.

No Toys at School

This is just a reminder that students are NOT to bring toys to school. They cause a lot of disruptions in the classroom. Thanks for your help keeping your child's toys at home.

Winter Weather

We go outside to play if the temperature is 40 degrees or higher. Please dress your child for outside play.

January Homework

Please continue to read monthly with your child. You need to read and record 20 books with your child each month. Thanks for reading with your child during December.
