jWe will celebrate Ms. Bayes' birthday on February 12.  Ms. Bayes is going to bring in a special birthday treat. 

We will be having a Valentine's Day party on February 14.  A party note will come home with your child in next week's Friday Folder. 

We will also be having a 100's Day party on February 15.  A 100's day note will be coming home with your child in next week's Friday Folder as well.  Also be looking for a family activity to work on at home. 

We are so excited for our school carnival that is coming up.  If you are able to donate to our raffle basket for our classroom, we would love you to bring in items soon.  Our basket is CRAYOLA!


What we are learning: 

*Behavior: We are continuing to practice our classroom rules and expectations daily.  We are not only able to talk about the expectations, but we will be showing how to act within the classroom and school setting. We now are in the full swing of class Dojo, so please keep a tabs on the positive behaviors that you see and talk to your child about all of their points that they are learning.  I love giving positive points. You should see the smiles on the kiddos faces when they earn points.   

*Letters: This will be our first week to begin our reading curriculum.  We will go through the entire alphabet throughout the next three weeks introducing five letters per week at a time.  This week: Ff.  We will be reviewing: All Capital and Lowercase letters/sounds.  

*Words: We will continue to work on the words see and look this week.  We will do a lot of word practice so please continue to help your child to practice extra on these words from home.  It would be greatly appreciated.  We will be reviewing: am, I, the, little, a, to, have, is we, my, like, we, she, and with.  

*Writing: We will continue to work on our journal writing in class.  Students are really working hard on touching their appropriate lines and adding their own inventive spelling at times.  We will also continue to work on writing our names with a capital letter at the beginning and lowercase for the rest of the letters.  We are also learning how to write straight lines, arcs, and circles.  The shapes help us write our letters on a daily basis. We will also begin to work on journals this week with an emphasis on copying from the board, and correct letter formation.  We will also be working on the importance of finger spaces and periods.   

*Math: We are beginning to work on shapes in class.  We will also continue to work on counting to 100, writing numbers to 20, using the number line to find missing numbers as well as which numbers come before and next. We are really focusing on learning our teen numbers this month as well.  This can be a tricky skill for some. 

*Home practice: (It would be great if you would spend 15 extra minutes daily on the areas below).

    -Letters and letter sounds: A-z

    -Our sight words: I, am, the, little, a, to, have, is, we, my, like, with, she, me, look, she

    -Personal Growth: waiting my turn, raising my hand to speak at carpet time, cleaning up my lunch area, and giving compliments are the
         areas we are working.
       on in class.  Any extra help from home would be appreciated. 

        **We are also really focusing on keeping our space clean at the lunch table and within our work space in the classroom. 

    -Keep up those Sam books at home.  I am so proud of all my students with their take home books.
    Sam book practice is really coming along.  Thank you for continuing to help your child at home.  Reading is progressing among all
    students within our classroom daily. Thank you. 

Congratulations to Maddux Brock and Paige Loran for completing all 52 of their SAM books.  Way to go kiddos!
