Thank you to Isla’s family for sending in extra snacks!


We practiced our first “Lock Down” drill.  We sat  in a special spot and talked about why and if we would ever have to sit there quietly.  As discussed with you at orientation, the  example used  was the scared raccoon in the building. Please let me know if you have any questions at all!

WOW!  I cannot thank you all enough for the “Wish List” items that you all sent in!  I don’t know who sent what but please know how grateful I am!  You are all so supportive and this did not go unnoticed!


We had a great start to the school year.  What a kind, energetic groups of littles!  I’m so excited to get to know them more.  


Next week we will start with a letter review each week.  We work on identifying the letter, knowing its sound and writing the letter.  On Mondays, homework will be to send in 3 items from home that start with the letter of the week.  Make this fun!  If  you cannot find items please feel free to cut pictures out of magazines or draw said items.  In a couple of weeks we will also be starting with “Snap Words”.  Feel free to practice these words at home.  We will also be sending home books to practice.  These do not have to come back to school.  I suggest you put them in a special place for a go to bag as they become very proud readers! Some books your child may be able to read and some you will read together.  Enjoy this snuggle time!!  Remind your child to look at the pictures for clues and point to the words as you read them.

100th Day…as of now our celebration will be on February 9th. Please send in a collection of 100 items. Ideas could be 100 cheerios, goldfish, pennies etc. It would be helpful if these items did not roll. They will be placed on a mat with 10 circles to display in our “100th Day Museum”. If you chose, we will also be dressing up as if we were 100 years old. So excited!

Things to work on at home

trying shoes

tapping out words

vowel sounds

trick words

Always, always, ALWAYS READ TOGETHER. To extend this wonderful snuggle time talk about how the characters FEEL in the book. Ask questions such as… how do you know he/she feels that way? Where did the story take place?

Please remember to update your child’s dry bag of clothes.
