As Spring Break approaches, I will be assessing students.  Here are some of the things I will be assessing:
Letter ID
Letter Sounds
Number Writing
Kindergarten Sight Words
Reading Levels

It is important that your child know all of his/her letters, sounds and as many sight words as possible.  I will be sending home a "report" that shares your child's assessments with you before spring break.  

Spring Celebration

We will be celebrating Spring on March 4.  We will be decorating Peep houses.  We will need to gather some materials to make our Peep Houses.  I will need a couple of parents to help pre build the peep houses at home or in the classroom.  You will need a hot glue gun.  Its not difficult and I will show you how.  There will be a sign-up sheet on the classroom door if you are able to help with donations.  As usual, feel free to text me and I can sign you up for something if you aren't able to make it over to the door.  Thank you so much for helping me supply things for the celebrations.  

3 Piggy Opera Play

We will have our play on March 11.  It will be at 11 am in the cafeteria.  This is a minimum day so all students may go home following the play.  I am in need of a few more items for costumes.  Maybe you have it to donate?  Here's what I need:
4 flannel shirts (size 6-8)
2 small aprons
Thank you in advance for helping me make this play a success!
