Winslow's Weekly Update

Happenings in Room B-4


We continue our learning on how to summarize and how to monitor our reading in order to help us understand. We will read a big book about Past and Present that will help us practice our summarizing skills. The phonics focus will be the long e digraphs. (cheek, weed, mean, each...)

I have been doing a lot of assessing in preparation for our conferences that start next week. I look forward to sharing your child's progress with you!

Dental Health

February is Dental Health Month. This week we will have visitors from Smiles Dentistry. They will be talking to all of the first graders about how to take care of their teeth. In a couple of weeks we will have a retired dentist come and follow up on our dental learning. Dennis (a classroom volunteer), loves to share his teeth knowledge with us!

Important News

***The Book Fair is taking place at Rice Lake this week. It will be open during the day as well as during conference nights. Come check out all the great books! My class will be going down to preview the book fair on Tuesday. If you want to send money with them to buy books...send it in a labeled bag or envelope and I will help them find what they are looking for. The kids will have a GROOVY time!!!

***The All-School Pajama Day will be on Friday, Feb. 26th. We earned this day for meeting our BoxTop goal. Please remember that the kids will still go outside for recess that day so plan accordingly!
