Friday Had Three Visiting Readers to Room 116
This mom made a repeat visit as a mystery reader. Nothing beats starting off the day with a reminder to show kindness to others by being a bucket filler as opposed to being a bucket dipper.
Mister Matt Visits
The end of the month means a visit from Mister Matt from the PR public library. We look forward to his visit. His next visit will be on February 12. When you patron the library, be sure to tell Mister Matt how appreciated he is in the community.
A Former Student of Mrs. McDevitt's Visits
One of Mrs. McDevitt's former students pops in once a week to say hello while we are having lunch. She makes him read a book to the class. If you are going to spend time in Room 116, you have to show that you love to read!

Information will be coming later this week about Room 116's Valentine's Day party. The children will be exchanging Valentines with one another. A list of class names will be sent home on Monday. Please let your children write TO and FROM on his/her valentines. Valentines may be sent to school on February 10, 11 or the 12. To prevent any broken first grade hearts, make sure there is a Valentine for every student in Room 116 before sending them to school.
In math, we continue to measure and add and subtract. Math is incorporated into so much of our day that it never really ends.
In reading, we are making sure we know the sounds of: wh, sh, th, ph, wr, ck. We are understanding the "ed" at the end of words can make one of three sounds: ed, d, or t.
Our ocean project of investigating the different zones of the ocean is taking off. We research animals and then discover which zone they live in the ocean.
Don't forget to send in one piece of white poster board by February 5 for your child's individual ocean fact book.
