100th Day Homework/Project: T-shirt!

Our 100th Day party is quickly approaching. As of right now, it is scheduled for February 3rd , 2016. We have been counting up to this celebration all year. All day long we will celebrate being 100 days smarter! We will make 100th day necklaces, glasses, count 100 objects, make 100 year old portraits and much, much more!

The best part of our day: ice cream sundaes!

I will purchase ice cream, toppings, bowls, spoons, and more. I had almost enough money left over from the Christmas money that was sent in! Thank you!

I cannot wait to celebrate with your children. This is, by far, my favorite day of the year!!!

To help make this day super fun, I offer this idea to families: make a 100the day shirt! In the years past, students have written 100 words on a t-shirt, glued sequins on a shirt, sewn 100 buttons on a shirt, even stuck on 100 stickers! Get creative! Have fun! Not everyone will do this...but the children who wear them make our day just a little more interesting. It's their own "show-n-tell" for the day.

Show-N-Tell Next Week: Hh!

Growing Readers

This week we had a lot of students return their independent reading books! I am so proud of the readers we are "growing" in our classroom. Please help me congratulate the following students for moving up to their next level on their own personal reading plan:
  • Joseph Naylor
  • Beanti Kabigting
  • Ja'Qwann Edwards
Keep reading nightly! Every time your child reads 10-15 books, they move up to the next level!

100 Chart Champions!

I would like to give a big HOORAY to the following students that have been able to independently write all numbers 1-100 on their math 100 chart! These students did not need any help, did not need to look at the chart in their dictionaries, nor did they need multiple days to complete their chart. I am so proud of this huge accomplishment!
  • Zani
  • Ameryah
  • Joseph
  • Trevor
  • Savannah
  • Aryelle
  • Ja'Qwann
  • Jaylan
  • Lorelei
  • Aidenn
  • Nathan
  • Kylin
  • Tyler
  • Braeden
  • Austin
  • Ashley
  • Landon
If your child's name is not on this list, please practice writing numbers 1-100 at home. If you need chart paper, I will gladly send some home for you. A child should be able to write their numbers 1-100 in about 5-15 minutes.

Rainbow Wall Exploded This Week!

Congratulations to the following students for moving up the Rainbow Wall this week:
  • Orange: Aidenn Williams
  • Yellow: Bentley Balboa, Austin Maust
  • Green: Ameryah Powell, Jaylan Velez, Braeden Bouse, Trevor Peavler
  • Purple: Lorelei Braniff
  • Cloud (1st grade words): Kylin Rigsby

Valentine's Day is Coming Soon!

On February 12, we will celebrate Valentine's Day! It is an "early dismissal" day, so we will only have a short time after lunch (or time in the morning) to exchange Valentine's. This is not mandatory. Each child will decorate a bag here at school. For any child that brought valentines to exchange, we will get them into the bags! Here is one way to make this task so much easier:
  • Please do not fill out the "To:" section of the valentine card. Only have your child write their name on the "From:" section. This way, we can quickly have each child put one card into each bag. The children do not have to worry about accidentally giving a card to the wrong person.

Treats and candy are not required nor expected. However, if you want to bring something in, feel free! We will pass them out to share! We have 24 students in our class.
