This week is a short week and it is Valentine's week. The 'A' class will come on Monday and Wednesday and the 'B' class will only come on Tuesday. We do not have school on Thursday, Friday, and the following Monday. This week we will begin the next week in Reading Street; however, it will take us two weeks to complete because of the long winter break. Students will bring home their "Family Ties" reading homework on Monday and Tuesday this week. Please take some time to do the activities over the next week. In math, we will be working with teen numbers. After assessing the children for the first time, I have noticed many children are having difficulty with writing teen numbers. Currently, many children are writing 12 as 21 and 13 as 31, and so on. We will be working on teen numbers for the next couple weeks. Please take time to look at the math homework which was sent home last week for practice on this. In addition, you will notice that children should be learning 13 means 10 and 3 more. This helps with place value, especially when they move into first grade.
We will also be having our Valentine's Day Celebration on Tuesday and Wednesday. We have notified parents who volunteered to send in materials already. If you have not been notified, we will not be needing anything at this point. I do appreciate your willingness to help out and may be called on in the future. Please remember to have your child send in 25 Valentine's signed by your child on Tuesday or Wednesday.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thank you for all of your support!
