February 9th-13th Parent Newsletter

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! Here is our class news!

Last Week: The kids’ costumes were great for our Marble Jar Party! I think they enjoyed it! Time to fill it back up. Last week we finished with Book D for phonics and are now moving on to Book E.


Phonics:  We are beginning Book E this week for phonics in homework. Just keep reading. The more they read, the better they will get.


Numbers: Review number families, practicing one or two families a day. Practice counting nickels and adding them, counting by 5’s. Also practice adding, recognizing numbers, time, and doing what comes before, what comes after.
