 Dear Family,

 We are very excited to begin the 2018-2019 year with your child!  This year we will be learning shapes, colors, numbers, letters, science, and so much more! Throughout the year we are going to be discovering new things in our classroom and outside in our community. We will be taking field trips throughout the year to give your child more hands on experiences.

We cannot wait to get to know your child, as well as getting to know you. Parents are the child’s first teachers and play an important role in the success of their education. We hope to have a lot of opportunities for family involvement in and outside of the classroom. Be sure to check your child’s take home folder for important information coming from our classroom or the school. This is also a great tool for you to be able to send notes to school.

 You can contact us through:

·         Email

·         Phone (260) 423-4333 (8 – 8:30 or 3:30 – 4)

·         Take home folders

·         In person before school (8 – 8:30) or after school (3:30 – 4)

Thank you for entrusting us with your child and their education. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Rachel and Ms. Melanie

105 Happenings

 Wow, January went fast! It was nice having small amounts of snow weather during January. I wish the groundhog had predicted that spring was on its way. We were tired of waiting for snow to play with because of the cold, so we put some in a big tub and brought it in to make a small snowman. The children enjoyed exploring with the snow too.

Last week we learned about shadows. The children enjoyed creating shadow puppets on the wall and exploring different ways to create a shadow with their hands. This month we are going to start our cultural studies on the continent of Australia and then we will begin learning about Asia. We will also discuss dinosaurs, black history, learn about tooth care, healthy habits and talk about caring for others.

Valentine’s Day Party

On February 14th we will have a Valentine’s Day party. The teachers are asking the children to bring 20 Valentines (one for each of the students in the class). We would like the children to sign their own name or if your child has not learned how to write his/her name you may write it for them on each card. Then, your child can try to write it under the one you wrote. They may also bring a bag of candy to pass out if they want.  Please send the Valentines to school on February 14th.  We will also play a few games on that day! 

Thanks,

           Miss Robin & Mrs. Quay

Reminders

 * We do go outside everyday if the temperature is above 32 degrees, so please dress your children in warm outside clothes including coats that fasten, hats, mittens and boots.

* Please let your child try to dress themselves and put on their own shoes at home to reinforce what we are working on in the classroom.

February Newsletter

Dear Parents of 104,

January pasted quickly as we started to focus on our letters.  We have worked on the following letters:  l, j, t, f and this past week we worked on the letter h.  Each letter we worked on writing the letter in the air together, practiced writing the letter on paper, and worked on the sound of the letter.  This past week as we worked together on the letter h we came up with the following words that begin with the letter h: hat, horse, hippo, hen, helicopter, heart, hospital, hog, hair, head, hand, hot, help, hamburger, hi and hello.

As you work with the child at home, repeat the letter, number three times.  It takes three times for their brain to absorb the letter, number or whatever that we are working on.

 In February 14, we will be having a Valentine’s Day Party.  Please send in Valentines with just your child’s name on the back of the valentine.  We will make sure that each child we receive their valentine.  I encourage the children to sign their valentine as that is good practice to write their name.  If you would like to bring in a treat you are welcome to do that.

 Take time to breathe, take time to live in the moment and our time is now. I tell the children every day to breathe and the live in the moment.  

 Ms. Stacey and Ms. Angela

February News Letter

Happy February parents and guardians. This month has been a little off track. We have had several children out due to illness. I can’t stress enough about not sending your child to school while they are sick. We are talking to the children daily about washing their hands correctly and often. The best method for hand washing is with soap and water, if water is not readily available hand sanitizer is an alternative with adult supervision. We have also talked about covering their cough and sneeze. We encourage them to sneeze and cough in their sleeves.

On February 14, we are having our Valentine’s Day party. Please have your child wear red or pink that day. You are welcome to bring in treats for our party. We currently have 18 students in our class. These numbers may change due to illnesses in our class. I will send you an exact count as soon as possible. The children will need a box to put their Valentine’s cards in. This can be a home activity or your child may bring their box to school and I will help them decorate their box. In the past, parents have used a shoe box, cereal box, and/or tissue box. You can be creative as you can with this project.

During the month of January, we have been working very hard on writing our first and last name, and recognizing lower case letters. We will continue to practice writing daily. When the children are writing their names at home, please remind them to say each letter as they write them. Repetition will help them recognize the letter while they are writing. Please make sure to check your child’s backpack for homework.

In the classroom, the children are enjoying the weekly visit from Junior Achievement. Ms. Corinne reads a story to the children and then begins a new activity regarding money. MS. Corinne talked to the children about the difference between needs and wants. The children were laughing and engaged during the activity.  Afterwards, the children get to take their projects homes.

Important Announcement:

Ms. Maureen will transition to room 103 on February 5, 2018. Ms. Maureen will be taking the lead teacher position in that room. We are sad that Ms. Maureen is leaving our classroom but we are excited that she will be next door.
