Weekly News: February 21-24

I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing three-day weekend with your families. 


Next week we are celebrating Read Across America Week and celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday! As part of our Read Across America celebration, we are welcoming guest readers into our classroom throughout the week! If you or someone you know (grandma, grandpa, neighbor, friend, doctor, librarian, etc!) would like to come and read a story to our kindergarten classes, please see the Classroom Clipboard in the morning! 


I will continue my assessments this week for report cards. Please understand that there may be times children come home with a book in their book bags that we did not have time to go over together or a math paper that they did not have time to complete in class due to assessments. Therefore they may need a little extra support. More information on Parent Conferences coming soon! I am looking forward to meeting with all of you again soon and discussing your child's growth from the past few months! 


Spring break is March 5th through March 15th - these two weeks are a great time to work on your community service projects!  


What Are We Learning This Week??: 

Sight Words: THERE WHERE THEY THEN THEM.

Letter Team: EY (makes two sounds - EE like in KEY, and AY like in THEY).

Reading: We will continue to read books about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, and read our poem of the week - "President's Day".

Writing:  We will continue our new writing program called "Step Up to Writing". Kindergarten SUTW is writing in a paragraph format with a topic sentence, three sentences about that topic, and a conclusion sentence. For example, "I know three things about Abraham Lincoln. First, Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States of America. Second, he was known as Honest Abe. Third, he helped end slavery. As you can see, I know many things about Abraham Lincoln."

Math: Students will continue working on worksheets at their level. Please continue to work on circled problems that students are missing and reinforcing these concepts at home. Practice your math facts everyday for our  Tuesday and Friday Timed Tests!
