A note was sent home this week about an optional project that your First Grader can take part in: Get a plain shirt and cover it with 100 items! They should be glued, stuck, or drawn on. The possibilities are endless! As of now, 100th Day is on Tuesday, February 12th :)

Reading Group Response Page
I began sending home Response Pages with all reading groups this week. This is a purple page found in your student's home reading bag. It includes: title of books, book rating, comprehension strategy, and new/interesting words. Each week this will be another component to the reading they are doing at home which reflects the conversations about reading we have in the classroom. We will complete some of it in class and the rest should be completed at home. I will collect when I meet with their reading group the following week! Let the conversations begin :)
Calling all EMPTY Cereal Boxes
We will be decorating empty cereal boxes for our Valentine Mailboxes. Therefore, please send in ANY empty cereal boxes you may have by Wednesday, February 6th. I am also looking for some vounteers able to come in this Friday to cover them with white paper for us to decorate. Please contact me if interested in helping with this. Thanks!
Happy Birthday to Cayl on Sunday!
Happy 1/2 Birthday to Allison on Monday!
