FEBRUARY
2019


Here’s what’s happening in Mrs. Debra and Mrs. Sharon’s class:


READING & PHONICS:

Our reading groups are now in high gear! While working in groups, many of us have learned how to successfully work independently. As always, when work is not completed your child will be expected to finish before he/she begins centers. This in itself is a factor that motivates. Papers done in class are sent home, so please review all work!
After recent assessment of all students, you may notice a change in reading books. Due to their progress some students may be changing groups and may need to skip a book or two. This is based on results from individualized assessments. If at any time you have questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me. Reminder: Please return reading books in Ziplocs each day.

MATH:

We celebrated 100th day on January 25th and worked on lots of fun activities including STEM activities, our 100’s collection and an art project. During February our class will start learning to identify coins, their value and will also be counting money using pennies, nickels, and dimes along with continuing to review addition and subtraction.


SOCIAL LIVING:


Our class will make predictions about whether Punxsutawney Phil would see his shadow and if we will have an early spring! We can only hope! During February, we will be studying about our great country and its famous national symbols.
Thanks to everyone who has been sending donations for the prize box. It is greatly needed.
Wish List: gallon and quart size freezer bags
