Notes:

•Attendance is very important and so is being on time.  Our tardy rate is one of the highest in the school.  Please work on getting your child to school on time.  Please let me know if there is anything preventing your child from getting to school on time and I will see what Ray School can do to help.

-Please donate empty paper towel rolls, egg cartons and toilet paper rolls to our class.

-Report cards went home today. Please contact me if you have questions about either report. I am happy to meet most mornings..
• We will exchange Valentine’s Day cards on February 14th at the end of the day. It is not necessary for your child to bring cards, but if they do, please ensure that every classmate receives a card (25 students). Please do not address the cards, it is much easier to pass them out without a name. We are not having a Valentine’s Day party but will learn about the valentine traditions.

WRITER’S WORKSHOP
We will complete How-To writing and begin All About Writing. Students have now began to write their facts in booklets and are adding details, as well as important vocabulary that pertain to their topic. Students will add diagrams, table of contents and other non-fiction text features this week. Students will work on organizing facts and writing strong introductions.

MATH
This week, we will continue with unit 5 in math. Students will practice creating comparison number stories. We will play the difference game. We will work more with the animal cards to compare weights and heights and add double digit numbers using the number grid and base 10 blocks. Students will also find the difference in animal weights. Students will take the unit 5 assessment at the end of the week.
