February is already upon us--can you believe it?
(What happened to January?)
Coming up in February:
Hundred's Day, Tuesday, February 6
I sent home a supply list with your child of things we will need for 100's Day. We will be doing alot of neat counting activities that day so please send one or two items on the list ASAP.
February is dental health month. We will be discussing dental hygiene this month so please encourage your children to take pride in their smile!
Of course, we will also have the Valentine's Day Party. I
will let you know when it is and what we'll need closer to the date.
We will also be studying about presidents during President's week towards the end of the month.
Please continue studying spelling words NIGHTLY--the words are very challenging in the Saxon Phonics Program. I know my students can do them if they study, study, study.
Finally, don't forget PRACTICE READERS. I sent home a blue letter stating that I will be taking a PR homework grade this nine weeks. The students need to read and return 20 stories for a 100% PR homework grade before the end of the third nine weeks. The Practice Readers are so important to their reading fluency and I need EVERYONE TO PARTICIPATE!
I am so glad to be teaching your children. It's alot of work, but such a blessing!
