Fabulous February 2020
100th Day was a success! We met with our book buddies and practiced doing lots of things 100 times, like making a funny face and holding it for 100 seconds or doing 100 jumping jacks. Our snack was yummy and our necklace was fun to make. Now we must move onward to our next events!
**Our Valentine’s Party is this Friday from 2-3. Along with the games, snacks, and centers, they will also pass out their Valentine’s during this time. We are making large envelopes this week for the Valentine’s to go in. Please make sure every child has a Valentine and goodie. You can send them in starting tomorrow. Your child will not be able to participate in receiving Valentines if they do not bring Valentine’s in to share. Thank you for understanding.
Center 1: Decorate cookies
Center 2: Snacks and drinks
Center 3: Decorate a frame/or make and take item.
Center 4: Game
Whole class: Pass out Valentine’s
**Conferences are in two weeks. I sent home conference sheets in Friday folders. Please check the day and time, sign it, and send it back to me this week. If we need to schedule another day and time, I need to know ASAP so we can make other arrangements to meet after school.
**We plan to start the Dr. Seuss project by picking a book and plan to start writing the draft to their report. The first week of March is Dr. Seuss week. Each day will be themed with certain things to wear or do for the day. It is already posted on the Shutterfly calendar, and I will also send an email reminder the week of conferences.
Please remember to read, sign, and send back the books Mrs. Peltier reads with your child. Many kids are not practicing which will slow their progress and they could miss an opportunity to move into harder books.
Math facts are slowly coming along. We have 8’s this week and we will have 9’s the week AFTER conferences. If you need extra practice sheets, place a note in your child’s homework folder. 8’s are the hardest facts to get down, and MANY kids need LOTS of extra practice!
As a reminder, our spelling words have increased to 15. We are not having any more practice test; our test schedule is Fridays only.
As always, please continue to send in snack and order lunch AHEAD of time.
Each week there have been LOTS of kids not able to check out library books. Please send them back before Tuesday, our scheduled library day.
Have a wonderful week and let’s hope everyone continues to stay healthy!!
