Room 1’s Newsletter   -   Week of January 24, 2023

Dear Parents,  

This week, we will try to finish up our Snow Unit and in Math we will continue understanding addition. In Language Arts we will work on CVC words with the short vowel o in the middle of the 3 letter words and the sight word, “he.”  So far our 20’s club sight words we’ve learned are: you, do, my, are, he.  

Please come on time to pick up your child during conference weeks and you may want to come a little early because grades 1-5 get out at 2:12pm and it gets hectic in the parking lot.  

As you looked over your child’s Achievement Report, I do NOT expect kindergartners at this stage in the year to receive all 3’s.  The grading system does not use traditional letter grades (A, B,C,D, F).  So when you see a bunch of 2’s, and even a sprinkling of 1’s give your kindergarteners a hug and feel proud.  They are exactly where they should be.  What a thrill it will be to see them grow and develop in the coming months!  I will be happy to answer any specific questions during parent conferences. I look forward to seeing you at conferences.

 HOMEWORK:     Please have your child do their homework in pencil and have them write their first and last name correctly on the top of each page. 

Also, once your child receives their sticker for the week, please take out all old homework from their homework folder. Thank you. 

  1. Please read at least 15-20 minutes everyday to your child. Fill out your child’s January reading log. Due Friday,February 3rd. 
  2. Learning a-z website = once or twice this week    Teacher Username: ctokunaga Your child’s password is their student ID#plus the 2 capital     letters
  3. 10’s club flashcards- please practice spelling and reading these words.  Your child will take a spelling test on Friday, Jan. 27th in class. 
  4. Inside or Outside?
  5. Word Match/Scrambled words
  6. Number Bees
  7. The Story of a Snowflake

HOMEWORK IS DUE ON FRIDAY

REMINDERS 

Victor Envelopes – Victor, Tuesday envelopes must be signed and returned every Wednesday.

Library books are due every Thursday.  We did not get 100% this week.  :(

It’s still not too late to join and donate. Please help Victor School and PTA by making a direct donation and joining the PTA.  Our class would like to win 100% participation.  We only have 11 families who have joined our PTA and only 4 families who donated for direct donations.  Please consider donating any amount you feel comfortable for the direct donation.  Remember the money you donate will go directly to our school to pay for our field trips, assemblies, Adventures in Art and so much more.  

Have a wonderful week.
