Class Update February 12 Week
Our conferences are right around the corner! I look forward to seeing you next Tuesday or Wednesday. Here are some details about this week:
*If you notice any signs of illness in your child, please keep him/her home and consult with your health care provider for proper treatment regimes. Please allow more than 24 hours absence if your child develops flu-like symptoms.
*Please make sure your child has a COMPLETE change of clothes in case of a potty accident. A complete change of clothes includes: underwear, socks, pants/shorts, shirt.
*This week we are conducting assessments for our Progress Reports. You will see those assessments and the Progress Report during our conferences next week.
*Remember to download photos from Shutterfly periodically. After the school year ends in May, the site will be inaccessible. It’s been such a joy to capture moments of your little ones in our classroom this year!

Curriculum Notes for the Week:
*Morning Work: The children will take a few minutes to practice activities with the letter J. After morning work, the children get to enjoy some playtime with their classmates.
*Happily Ever After (The Nightingale): We will continue our unit by retelling the story, identifying first/next/last/left/right, identifying first/last sounds of words, matching patterns, and sequencing words and events.
*Letter (J): This week we will read books with letter J sounds. We will identify upper and lowercase j, determine pictures that begin with j, and create a jack-in-the-box.
*Social Studies (Family as Community & Community Economics): We are continuing our unit on how we help at home. This week we will draw pictures of how people in our family help. We will also talk about needs and wants.
*Math (Unit 3/Patterns Plus): This week we will read our book, The Table of Phinneas Fable, and we will create pasta patterns.
(Please bring at least 2 books that are age appropriate) and wait out in the hallway until we announce you.
