100’s Day/Valentine’s Day

February 5, 2019

Dear Families,

We will be celebrating the 100th day of school and Valentine’s Day on Thursday, February 14,  2019.  We will be engaged in several activities that will center on the number 100.  We will also have a 100’s day snack (see our classroom blog post to sign up if you would like to donate items for the snack).  We will also dress like we are 100 years old!!! This is a fun and exciting day for Kindergartners!!

 

If your child would like to bring in Valentine’s Day cards or treats please make sure there is enough for our whole class.  We have 19 students in our class. Please do not put a name in the spot on the card where it says “To:_____,” just have your child fill in the space that says “From:_____.”  It makes it MUCH easier for them to pass out when it is time to do so.

 

Thank you for all you do for our class!

Educationally Yours,

Mrs, Massey

Spelling Letter

Dear Families,

Beginning next week, your child will be bringing home a list of spelling words. Each week, we will be learning and practicing a new “word family”. The lists will consist of three word family words and three sight words.

At the end of the week, students will be asked to correctly write those six words called “hot words”. They will also be given four additional word family words called “cold words”. The cold words will be words they have been exposed to throughout the week; they just won’t know what words they will be given until they are read orally during the spelling test.

We do this in order to assess students on their ability to correctly apply the word families and understand that changing the beginning sound/letter of one word can make a new word. I also give students a sentence to write at the end of the spelling test, this is strictly for practice, it will not be scored.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Massey
