Feb. 19-23

Our Winter trip to River Bend Nature Center is next Thursday, Feb. 22nd. We leave after breakfast and return before lunch. They need snowpants, boots, and hats/gloves. We will be outside all morning. You have already paid and turned in a permission form, so you just need to sit back and look at the darling slideshow that will come home on Thursday! Make sure to ask what interesting new facts they learned.

Next week we will continue to study American symbols and write a letter to the President! (This is a continuation of this week...we did not get as far as I thought we would!

Wednesday: Library Day

Fluency Folder (bags)- These bags contain kindergarten sight words/sentences on different colored papers. Once your child can read the pink, the next color will be sent home. The bag also contains 2 "just right" books for your kiddo to read with you! I ask that you spend 5-10 minutes reading something from the bag each school night. I have a log for you to sign and return on Fridays. We will then refill the bag with new reading material for the next week. This counts toward your reading minutes on our monthly reading logs and will help your child immeasurably with their reading progress! Thank you so much!

You will find a coupon for a free Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut on your child's completed reading log! Thanks, Pizza Hut!

Now that school has begun, please make sure to check your child for lice weekly!

*IMPORTANT* We have a couple of friends with severe nut allergies. We will be a nut-safe classroom to keep these friends healthy, safe, and happy! Please refrain from any peanut products for birthday treats etc.
