Weekly News: February 3-7


Mark your calendars for two three-day weekends coming up in a row, as there is no school next Monday, February 10th and no school on Monday, February 17th. 

We will be celebrating Valentine's Day together with some fun themed centers on Valentine's Day. If your child would like to make valentines for the class, a list of boys and girls names will be sent home this week. This is great writing practice for your child. Please check for a sign-up on ParentSquare (coming soon!) if you would like to donate towards our fun Valentine's Day centers on this day.

If you are available on Tuesday evening, we will be holding our annual LCAP meeting at the CSC campus at 5:30 in the Lion's Den. LCAP stands for Local Control and Accountability Plan - this is our school plan/goals and your feedback and input greatly helps us with ways to improve our school. We hope to see you there! 


Upcoming Events:  
Monday, February 10: NO SCHOOL 
Friday, February 14: Valentine's Day Centers (more info coming soon)
Monday, February 17: NO SCHOOL

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: EACH, PHONE, LAUGH, ALSO, YOUR.

Letter Team:  PH (makes the "F" sound like in PHONE and GRAPH).

Reading:
 
This week we will continue reading books all about our country. We will be learning all about our American symbols (flag, liberty bell, bald eagle, White House, Mount Rushmore, etc.) We will learn the meaning behind the words of the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Writing:  We will continue working on narrative (stories about our lives) and opinion pieces. We are working hard on going back to reread our stories to make sure they make sense and make sure we have our conventions (period at the end, uppercase at the beginning, and proper spacing). 

Math: We will continue working on addition and subtraction problems and word stories. You can help at home by asking your child a simple math story - "If we have three apples and two oranges, how many pieces of fruit do we have altogether? What number sentence would match that story?"


Leadership: We will continue to ROAR and discuss what it means to have a growth mindset!
