We are learning so much in class!  Below are some highlights of happenings inside our classroom.  In addition, Lakeland has some fun events coming up!

url-2Lakeland Family Prom!

We are all so excited for Lakeland’s Family Prom on Saturday, February 23rd from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  The cost is $15 per family if you buy your tickets in advance or it is $20 at the door.  I hope to see your family at this fun event 🙂


Fancy Day

To get us all excited for the Family Prom, Lakeland is having a “fancy dress up day” on Friday.




Non Fiction Homework

I am so impressed with the amazing non fiction homework journals so far!  Keep up the great work!  Remember journals are due every Thursday.



snackSnacks Needed!

We are very low on snacks.  If you could donate a box of snack for afternoon community snack, we would really appreciate it 🙂  Some ideas: Cheerios, Fruit Loops, pretzel rods, saltine crackers, goldfish, graham crackers.  Your child is also welcome to bring in his/her own morning (and/or afternoon) snack if they wish to have one.




Math ~ Number Fun!

We are working on counting to 100 by ones orally.  Please practice this skill at home with your child.

We are working on writing and identifying numbers in the teens.  Here is a fun video about numbers in the teens start with a ONE!


We are also studying doubles addition facts.  Here are 2 videos about doubles.  The first one is 1-5 and the 2nd one is 6-10.  The kids love these videos and I hear them singing their math facts in the classroom.  Music is a fun way to learn math 🙂





Writing Workshop!

We are working on a piece of writing about what we LOVE.  The pieces of writing will be posted in the hall.  Our writing lessons this week will focus on how to include the word, “because” in our writing.  We are learning about  “Opinion Writing” and using “connecting words” (because & and) in sentences.  Here is a fun Starfall activity about connecting words: Connecting Words




Winter Clothing

Thank you for sending your child with hat, mittens, snow pants and other appropriate winter clothing.  Please try to label your child’s items when possible.  Also, if your child accidentally took home the wrong pair of black snow pants, please let me know or send them in with your child.  They are labeled, “Jackson.”   We had so much fun outside in the snow today!
