Dear K-Kid Families,
A week full of poetry will help us to write our own Valentine poetry. We will finish our Jan Brett author and illustrator study and keep having a great time reading with our Reading Folders. In math we are continuing with subtraction, and counting by 10s, 2s and 5s. We continue to work on writing our numbers J.
We are going to say good bye at the end of the week to Ethan Seeley as he and his family move to North Carolina. We do plan on staying in touch perhaps with FaceTime, or at the least emails! He will be here on Friday for our Hoops for Hearts which you are welcome to attend. We will probably be at Brooks Gym at 9:30 and leave around 11:15 to come back for a picnic lunch in the gym. After that we will have a movie and then our Valentine Party at 2:15. A big, big day! Our sign-up sheet is on the door please add your name so we can have a great party.
We will be talking about our Presidents and Famous Tennessee People this month in social studies. In science we are continuing to look at the consequences/advantages of winter weather! Soon in science we will be looking at biodiversity in the environment with animals. We will be bringing in some “new” living critters so we can care for them and observe them closely.
Thank you for all that you do.
