Math

Represent and count quantities to 120 in multiple ways.

* represent #'s on the # line

* skip count by 2's, 5's and 10's. You can practice this at home or while driving in the car!

If your child is having a hard time, you might want to buy a number chart to 120.



-The district is in the process of setting up Compass Learning, Raz-Kids, and Dreambox. When it’s available I will let you know. At that time I will send home all your passwords so that you can log on.


-Please sign up to receive SSF’s weekly flyers. Go to the SSF website to sign up.



On Monday, 2 books in a clear, plastic envelope will go home:

*These envelopes need to go back and fourth from school to home EVERY night!

*New books will come home each night unless the plastic envelope wasn’t returned that day.

*Remember, these books have been read several times at school and should be easy. I want to build their confidence and learn to LOVE reading.

*If they don't bring back the envelope they will not take new books home that day. If they loose a book, it costs $10.00 to replace.


Friday afternoon I sent home the school pictures. You can order on line or return the form to school.


Our Community Service Project this month is to collect new school supplies for San Pasqual Academy. This is a school for Foster Children and they are in need of pencils, crayons, markers, backpacks, paper etc.


Try and attend the Cocktails with Class! It is a fun evening and an opportunity to get to know other parents. It will be at Celia Zdandowski' home.


On Tuesdays we will be collecting junk!

OUR TINKER LAB NEEDS ATTENTION:
