Weekly News: January 27-31


FRIDAY, WE ARE CELEBRATING OUR 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL! Please check HOMEWORK for our special 100 Day Sharing Homework. Also - on Friday, please send your child to school with some kind of small snack to share with the class (a large box or bag of goldfish, gummy bears, skittles, cheerios, etc. are good examples). This does not need to be counted out to 100 - just bring a box or bag of something and we will be mixing all of the snacks and counting 100 items for our "100th Day Hash". If you would like, you may join us in class at 12:00 on Friday as we watch our special video from our first 100 days of school. I can't believe that we have already been in school for almost 100 days! I am so proud of your kids and how far they have come! 

We are STILL in need of LOTS AND LOTS of empty Capri Sun boxes!!!! If you have any please send them to school with your child! Thank you very much!!! Note: if you could please open the boxes at the side (not in the middle around the edges) that would really help us out! Thank you! 

It is with deep regret that I inform you that kindergarten will no longer be performing at the Gala this year. 

Upcoming Events:   
Monday, February 10th: NO SCHOOL!
Friday, February 14th: Valentine's Day 
Monday, February 17th: NO SCHOOL!

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE.

Letter Team: 
 ONG (like in SONG) and ONK (like in HONK).  

Reading: 
This week we are reading books all about our 100th Day of School! 

Writing: We have some fun writing assignments this week. We will be writing all about our first 100 days of school, what we would do if we had $100, and what we would look like if we were 100 years old. 

Math: We will continue to focus on more than/less than, ways to make ten, and decomposing numbers. You can help at home by asking your child questions like, "If I have 4 apples and I need 10 apples, how many more apples do I need?" or "Grandma has ten dogs. 6 dogs are black. How many dogs are white?"


Leadership: This month, our leadership trait is BOLDNESS. Our kindergarten definition for BOLDNESS is: being brave enough to do what is right even when we are scared. Our leadership assembly for the month will be this Friday morning at 8:10.
