Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a nice morning and enjoying some family time! This week we will continue our Social Studies unit on maps, globes, directions, and making connections to other states and countries. We will become Geographic Explores this week! We have a fun week coming up!

100’s Day:

We are a 100 days smarter! Monday we will be celebrating our 100th day of school! I have a fun day planned. We will be counting, sorting, writing, and creating 100 day activities. Way to go kindies!


Valentine’s Day Party:

We will celebrate as a class on Monday, February 14th. Your child is invited to make a Valentine box/bag at home and bring in Valentine cards. A homework note will go home on Monday. Your child may include a treat/goodie with their Valentine cards if they would like. I look forward to celebrating with them!



R.E.D. Book and Book bags: Please keep all books in the bag. This  will help with lost and damaged books. New books will go home on Tuesday. If you did not return your book bag on Friday, please return on Monday. I try to have them ready to go for the following week. If books are not returned, no new books will go home. I hope last week went well! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Writing

We are working on drawing a picture with five or more details.  Students are writing simple sentences using the sight words we learned.  If they do not know how to spell a word they are stretching out the sounds they know to create their words. 


Sight Word(s)

Please practice reading and writing sight words. List and sight word cards went home before break.
