Dear Room 114 Families,
There are several notes/reminders for the week.
- Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. If your child is choosing to hand out cards please make sure they have enough for all 24 students.
- Friday is the 100th day of school. Directions went home last week for the 100th day project. Today students were told they could dress like they were 100 on Friday. We discussed what that may look like. Many of us thought we would wear pajamas all day, while others thought we might be a superhero. One students said she would wear prom dresses every day!! Please let your child participate however you feel appropriate.
- This Thursday is our Black History Celebration. The event is from 5 to 8 at night. Additional information was sent home last week.

Sound and Light, Oh My! This week we will begin the light portion of our unit. Last week we finished up some activities I had hoped to complete the week before.
This week we began our unit on Then and Now. Students will be questioning family members throughout the unit. Today we had a hilarious conversation about what they thought life was like when their parents were in first grade.
