Classroom Valentine Exchange

Our Valentine card exchange is on Thursday, February 11th. Please send 21 valentine cards signed from your child. Please do not write a name on the "to" line.

This is a good opportunity to encourage neat handwriting. Remind you child to use a capital first letter and lowercase for the rest on their first name.

We will make a Valentines' card holder at school. We also voted to wear red or pink.

This is not a class party day. However, it is a fun way to celebrate friendship, kindness and caring.

America and our Community, Kindergarten Unit 5

This week we are learning all about our American Flag. We will use some "flag facts" to write our own books about our American Flag.

Reading - We will be reading non- fiction books learning facts about the Flag. As we read we will try to ask and answer questions for better understanding.

Try visiting the Brainpop Jr. website to learn more about our American Flag. www.brainpopjr.com
