We met Mr. Rr this week. Included in today’s folders are some handwriting practice papers. We continue to work on forming all of our letters from the top (start up high and pull down straight).
Please continue to work on the 2 letter sight word list that was sent home last week.
We continue to practice counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s. I have also observed some of the children getting out our number cards and also working with some of our big number charts and practicing on their own.
We are working on adding detail to our small moment stories and also writing across more pages as we do so.
We will continue with “at” words during our task time next week. Please continue to ask your child to read their lists to you at home.
I rethought my plan to start TWO new tasks during our Morning Task Time. We will introduce subtraction next week.
The virtue we will focus on this month is love. We are learning that “love is patient and love is kind.”
Mass next week will be on Wednesday.
Thank you so much to Pai’ton and her family for adding to our Dinner Auction Classroom Basket. Thank you, also, to Mari’s family for their donation to the Silent Auction. There are opportunities to help set up on Thursday and Friday as well as on Saturday and Sunday (clean-up). Please let me know if you would like to help out.
I am planning on having our Valentine’s Day celebration on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13. Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. We will celebrate at the end of our day, around 2:00, like we did for our Christmas Celebration. Thank you to Nicki’s mom for sending in a cute craft for the kids to do. The menu will be mini pizzas (we will need pizza sauce, english muffins, cheese, and pepperoni), cookies we will decorate (we will need cookies, frosting, and sprinkles for this), and chips. Volunteers are needed and appreciated!
The children are invited to bring in Valentines for their friends.
Just a reminder - Hot lunches at SJV need to be pre-ordered the week before (Friday by the end of the school day). Thank you for helping us with this!
