Dear Kindergarten Families,

Follow Dr. Seuss’ quote and find some magic in books as you read together this coming week. Reading should be about 20 minutes per night. Have you child color in a heart on the February Book-it form each time they read. Please have students sign their name at bottom and parents please sign. I have had a few papers come back with no name – makes it hard to know who did the work!

Notice the National Geographic magazine is in your child’s homework folder and a piece of storybook paper. Find an article to write about on the paper provided. Your child should write at least one sentence and draw a picture of the animal or information on a favorite page. Examples: I like the ____________. Why do the penguins __________. We have been working on telling sentences and asking sentences – the who, where, why, when and where.

Valentine’s are top priority for this coming week. Have your child write their name or number on each card. We will have a Valentine’s Day exchange and make a cute craft. Due to Ash Wednesday falling on February 14 we will not eat any candy treats from our Valentines Day exchange.

Do at least one round of ixl in each math and language arts. Please note: ixl is a required site to visit and spend time practicing and learning! Your child has to spend at least 10 minutes on ixl one day or split it up during the week.

Probability is one of our lessons this week.

R.1 More or less likely 

Sentence writing is a part of our daily work.

L.1 Asking sentence or Telling sentence

**Sites below are not required but good learning.

A fun probability game –
