Happy February Curious Caterpillar Families!
I hope this posting finds all of our families healthy!
Some of the topics we visited last week will be revisited in the upcoming weeks. We will extend our learning about Needs/Wants, Goods/Services, and Producers/Consumers.
On Friday, report cards went home. The report card may stay at home, but please sign and return the envelope.
Also on Friday, your child's first Math Journal went home. There are some pages that have not been completed. These pages make for great EXTRA practice. This week, your child's homework will be to complete 3 pages that have not been completed. I would then like your child to write me a note letting me know what pages he/she completed. He should also tell me his/her opinion on the pages. Did he/she like a certain kind of problem? Find another type challenging? etc. The note to me will be due Wednesday. Your child does not need to bring the journal back.
This week is an Assessment week at school. Your child will be taking a Mid-Year Math Assessment and a Reading and Writing Benchmark Assessment.
Valentine's Day is approaching. It is a tradition, along with our reading buddies, to honor families on this day. We will be sharing special writings about a special topic...YOU! Please join us on February 14th in the library from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. We will be presenting our writings at this time.
Later that day, from 1:30-2:00, we will have our Valentine Party. Children may pass out Valentines at this time. I will send a class list via e-mail. Your child does not have to hand out Valentines, but if he/she chooses to do so, I ask that he/she have one for each classmate.
In addition, your child will be making a Valentine Mailbox here at school. Your child will need to bring in a box....a shoe box, cereal box, or cracker box will work great! Please make sure that your child has the box by Friday of this week. Thank you!
