I hope this message finds you all well and thawed out! Tonight your child is bringing home their NWEA reports that accompany the report cards. We will hopefully have four full days of school this week, but don’t forget that kindergarten only does not have school on Friday because teachers have a full day of professional development. I also just wanted to say a bug thank you to Cohen and his mom for making and sharing ADORABLE penguin cupcakes with the class on Friday during snack time to celebrate our penguin research project. They kids LOVED them! Have a wonderful week!
Mrs. Ross 🙂
I will send any updates of school information as they come. Have a wonderful week!

Homework: This week your child will receive a math game to put in their math binder and the next 5 lessons in math.
*Popcorn: Kindergarten will not be here for popcorn sales this week, but feel free to send in quarters with siblings if you have older kiddos at DuVall.
*Library check out: This week we have check out. Please help your child bring place their books in the backpacks Monday night!
*Reading Packs: Make sure your child is spending about 10-15 minutes reading at night on Raz-Kids and the books, letters/words you find in the reading packs. This will help your child SO much reviewing their personal bags each night! All bags have been switched so make sure you child is practicing books they receive this week.
LA Books: Informational Books about “Penguins” (We will read and research about penguins this month). Books about kindness this month.
*If your child does NOT have any penguin books, I would love to encourage your child to visit the Dearborn Public Library to get a library card, check out some great new books, and find some books on penguins!
*If you like looking on the computer with your child, we’d love to read some child friendly articles on penguins!
Writing Topic: Informational Writing: Penguins (Can, Have, Are) We have begun taking our writing plans and putting them into sentences in a rough draft. I am so proud of our writing skills! We should be finished publishing them this week so look for them in the hallway very soon!
Spelling: -an family (can, *man, *fan, ran, van, *pan) Test moved to this Thursday because of the short week last week!
Sight Words: am, have (also on spelling test Thursday for extra bonus points)
-words with a * are definitely on the test, I will add two cold words to make a total of 5 words on the spelling test on Fridays. In addition there will be the two “sight words of the week” to make sure we keep learning the sight words on the Dolch List!
