St. John Vianney Catholic School
February 2, 2018
I know this is Thursday, but with how crazy this weather has been, I just wanted to touch base today instead of tomorrow.
We met Mr. Ll 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). THANK YOU for helping your children with this! I have heard several children say “My Mom/Dad has been working with me and have me form the letters the ‘right’ way”. We are now REALLY emphasizing that numbers and letters need to touch the top and bottom lines.
Please continue to work on the 2 letter sight word list that was sent home last week. We worked on a “flap” book to practice these.
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.
On Monday, we will be working with another word family. We will return to “at” later on, as a review:)
We began our Subtraction Task this week. Please have your child read these Math Sentences to you.
In Math, we continue to answer the question “how many” and are really working on strategies to help us “count on”.
Mass next week will be on Wednesday at 10:30. It is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. There will be many more people in attendance as this is a parish Mass and a Holy Day.
Valentine’s Day Party - This is on TUESDAY! Still Needed for the party:
Jar of pizza sauce
package of English muffins
1 package of pepperoni
Volunteers are needed and appreciated for this event! We will begin our celebration at 2:00.
The children are invited to bring in Valentines for their classmates (We have 12 children in our class).
