2. Use the writing notebook to practice the letter we practiced in school today.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS FORMING THE LETTERS FROM TOP TO BOTTOM!!!! The chicken always crossed form the top of the road.   I do this in school too.  Thank you:)

3. Show & Tell practice- Students should be encouraged to practice Show & Tell before presenting.  Your child should be able to describe the object and tell as much as s/he can.  Children are expected to answer questions posed by the audience in complete sentences.  Ask your child to model what we do in class even if it is not his/ her turn tomorrow.  I'll be working on strong voice, eye contact and answering in complete sentences too.

4. Read every night-Complete monthly reading incentive.  We're reading up a storm and filling the hallway with snowflakes in the process.  If you need more flakes, let me know.
