Ms. Robtoy’s Class Newsletter
February 2, 2020
Room 24 has been working hard at reviewing expectations to be a responsible learner! We have been talking about keeping problems small, communicating with our friends when needed, and trying our best work always. In social emotional learning, we have been trying to recognize other’s emotions. We have been talking about what it means to have empathy. Reviewing this with your Kindergartener at home would be super helpful for them in the classroom ☺
* There is a half day on Wednesday, February 12th (be on the lookout for a reminder in your child’s red folder)
* February vacation is February 17th-21st. There is no school these days.
* To celebrate Valentine’s Day, we will have a small celebration Friday, February 14th. Your child may bring in Valentine’s Day cards for their classmates. PLEASE DO NOT have your child write each individual student’s name on the cards. Please just have your child decorate 14 cards. They will be able to hand them out in to bags much faster this way.
* Please pack a warm coat, gloves/mittens and a hat as much as possible. Students go outside throughout the winter. ☺
*Please try and read with your child as much as you can throughout the week! It makes them become stronger, fluent readers! ☺ If you return a signed book sent home, your child will get a homework check! When they get 6, they are able to pick a prize from the treasure box!
*Sneakers are needed on TUESDAY’s for gym class please!
*Please try your best to check your child’s RED FOLDER every night ☺ Lots of important information is sent home in it.
*SIGHT WORDS TO PRACTICE AT HOME: the, this, is, my, a, I, like, see, look, for, here, you, what. Writing them on index cards or paper and posting them in your child’s room is a wonderful way for them to memorize them!
*New letters to practice writing and recognizing sounds: g and o.
News to Share:
*It is hard to believe that the 100th day of school is February 11th! We will be celebrating with our school family that day. We will be making pictures out of 100 fruit loops! If possible, we are looking for any donation of fruit loops by Friday, February 7th!
*February birthday celebration will be held in our classroom on Thursday, February 27th. If your child has a birthday in February and you would like to bring in a pre-packaged healthy snack to share with the class, we would love it and love to celebrate them!
