Newsletter – Week of 1/13/20

I hope you all had a nice week and are ready for the incoming cold weather! Read about the events from this week in Room 11:

 

Sight words to be assessed next week: Boy, Day, For, Got, Her, How

 

In Math, the students learned a new work station called Fives Up. This game helps teach adding fluently within five using the ten frame and number cards.

 

Today Ms. Meyer came in for our weekly PBIS lesson and talked with the kids about personal space. She read a book and led a discussion in the classroom.

 

The students also learned about the famous leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  We read a book, discussed how he fought for equal rights for all people, and ways that we can make the world a better place for others.

 

On Thursday, January 30th,  Suzanne Slade, an Author of many children’s books, will be presenting to the kindergarten students. She is offering autographed copies of several of her books. If you are interested in your child having a book or books, please print out the book order form

and send it to school with your child by January 21st. If you don’t have a printer, you can email me with the book(s) you want and I will fill out the form for you.

 

Below is a note from Mr. Flinn, our PE teacher:

The Kid’s Heart Challenge has begun and the American Heart Association needs your help. Please help PCCS reach our goals of raising $10,000 for the Kid’s Heart Challenge. If you can’t raise money, you can still help PCCS reach our goal of having over half the students sign up online. The class that has the most students sign up online will receive a recess basket of new equipment. Be sure to sign up online!
