It's February

Hi all! Happy February! It was great to get to talk to many of you at conferences on Wednesday and I am looking forward to seeing more of you next week. Reminder: there is a PTO meeting on Tuesday.

We are really emphasizing smooth blending words and identifying the last sounds in words. The students are improving at these skills, but additional practice at home would be helpful as well. Also, be sure to practice your Read Well books as often as possible. This will help your child improve their fluency to earn strong passes on their unit tests.

In math, we are focusing on teen numbers and counting by ones to 100. Soon we will dive into addition! I can't wait. The students' math skills are so strong, I know that they will enjoy addition.

Thanks to all of you who sent in donations for the Valentine's Day party. The students are going to have incredible treat bags to take home!
