Ms. Vanessa's Biweekly Class Update
for the weeks of 2/10/13 & 2/17/13
Class starts promptly at 8:15am
Bring in a box for decorating by Weds!
Please send in a box that will be used to decorate and collect valentines: a shoe box, Kleenex box or cereal box will do. Please mark your child's name on the bottom. The kids will be decorating their boxes on Weds, Feb 13th. If you have extra boxes, please bring as well in case anyone forgets one.
Feeling Crafty? Valentine's Day Help Wanted
Also, we need one or two parents to bring 24 small bags of popcorn and 24 juice boxes for the party. Please contact Laura (email@example.com). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
"Do your best in line." Ask your child what it means to them. You will likely receive this response as part of your interesting conversation: To do your best in line, you do four things: 1. bubble 2. taco style or hands behind back 3. face forward 4. walking feet.
We'll update you on the golden goals as they change.
New! Monthly Assembly
Homework, Homework, Homework!
There is also a new homework wall going up in our class. It will feature ~four examples of homework from the week. Please remember to email photos to Ms. Vanessa (firstname.lastname@example.org) & Ms. Ruth (email@example.com) if you aren't able to include your homework project in the folder, such as math and sight word projects. They want to see and feature your child's hard work!
And, finally, be on the lookout for homework appreciation certificates.
Lots of fun with homework!
