It's almost time for our biggest school fundraiser of the year, the annual HAWK WALK. All the details were in Mrs. Okula's email this past week. The goal for K-2 is 100% class participation! Each student that participates in the letter writing (10) or raises $150, will receive a special Hawk Walk t-shirt to be worn the day of the event. It is such a fun day!!
1. Monday- Gym uniforms / Sign and return Progress Report.
2. Wednesday- Library books
3. Wednesday- Show and Tell: Letters Ff and Rr.
4. January 28 (Sunday)- CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK begins with Mass at 10:30 a.m. at the main Church.
5. February 2 (Friday)- 12:00 Dismissal.
Here is what we worked on this week:
RELIGION: We learned that we show love and respect to others by the way we treat them. We learned the story of "Breakfast on the Beach". Ask your child to tell you the story.
MATH: Continue to practice quick recall of the facts up to 5. I will be "testing" again next week. We are now working on the numbers 11-20. It is important that your child be able to recognize and print these numbers correctly. For example: 12, not 21. Sometimes kids flip these two numbers around.
LANGUAGE ARTS: The letter of the week was Ee. The new word was: are. The children should be able to identify each capital and lowercase letter of the alphabet and the sound each letter makes.
*Word Wall*- I, can, the, we, see, a, like, to, and, go, you, do, my, are, red, blue, orange, green, yellow, purple, brown, black, zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, triangle, circle, square, rectangle, oval.
It is so important to make flash cards for all these words and practice them daily in a different order each time.
Continue to work on the reading website, Wonders, atleast 2-3 times a week. I can notice, during reading groups, who has been reading the stories at home.
Please reinforce writing words and short sentences at home. The words do not need to be spelled correctly, but spelling them with the sounds they hear.
CENTERS: IPADS / WRITING / LISTENING / WORD WORK- You are_____. / MATH- number puzzles / MONTHLY ART- snowman with scarf / ABC WORK- sight words / LETTER ART- chick in an egg
STUDENT OF THE WEEK- Jason M.
Let's hope for a "normal" week of school. No delays, early dismissals, or days off. This makes it difficult for all of us, especially the children, to fall back into our daily routine.
