February is such a great time to teach the children about friendship and sharing. Our theme for next week is centered around Valentine's Day and will incorporate friendship, caring for others, and sharing. We have some fun math activities planned to reinforce number identification, counting, sorting, and patterning using various sized colored hearts.
If you have not sent your child's valentines to school, please be sure to send them on Monday. We are asking that parents write their child's name in the "from" section of the valentine so it will be easier for the children to pass them out to their classmates. You can send them in a ziploc baggie in their folder or book bag. If you would like to send in wrapped candy for their valentine exchange celebration, it would be greatly appreciated. We have 22 children in our class. Please remember that we can no longer accept home baked goods. All foods such as cupcakes, cookies, etc. must be store bought due to children's food allergies.
We would like to thank our student teacher, Miss Amber Hynes, for doing such a great job in our classroom. Her last day with our class will be on Thursday, February 16th. We will miss her greatly and wish her all the best!
Please remember that there will be no school on Friday, February 17th.
