Please send your child in with appropriate outdoor clothing. Winter coats, hats, gloves and/or mittens are a must. It would be helpful for you to send in a pair of shoes that they can change into from their boots. The children go outside if weather is above 20 degrees. Sometimes it can be very cold!

Ask your child about our new word “Schema” and what “capacity” means!

Things to work on at home
Letters and sounds
Trick Words
writing letters and numbers
tying shoes
rhyming
beginning and ending sounds
vowel sounds

January Family Project
We will continue to study non-fiction/informational books. Please create a project however you’d like to research something of interest to your child. Animals, planets and dinosaurs are a few that come to mind. 😉 Please send these in anytime during the month of January.

“SECRET SQUIRREL MISSION”

SHHHHHH!
Let’s have the children put together a surprise basket for Catarina. As you know, sadly her family lost their home in a fire last week. If you are able to please send in a toy, game, puzzle, coloring book, reading book or ANYTHING that your child thinks Catarina would like. You do not need to buy anything new, if your child wants to give something from their things that is a great gift right from their sweet little hearts. I’d like to have this basket delivered on Friday so please send in any items this week.

THANK YOU TO MY DEAR RCS FAMILY!

Mrs. Willhite & Mrs. Hopkins 🙂
