Wow, what a week! We have been hard at work from learning about Martin Luther King Jr., to celebrating our 100th day of school! On Tuesday I handed out a permission slip for our upcoming field trip on February 10th! If you have your fingerprint card cleared through the district and would like to attend please let me know as soon as possible!
If you are not part of the PTA Facebook page then you might not be aware of our schedule change for next school year. Next year the district is trying to change Rover's hours from 9:00am-4:00pm. I have already heard that some parents are concerned about this time change. Superintendent Chris Busch came to our PTA meeting this week and explained that nothing is set in stone and she would love to hear any concerns parents have. If this schedule change is at all an issue for you please email Chris Busch as soon as possible so that your voice can be heard. Her email address in firstname.lastname@example.org. She said the district will be making a decision in the next couple of weeks, so the sooner you reach out to her the better!

Reading: We will be reading Little Rabbit's Tale. Our phonics skill will be words that end with -ing, -ank, -ink, and -ung. We will also be learning about compound words! Our focus skill will be cause and effect relationships.
Math: Next week we will compare 2-D and 3-D shapes as well as look at the attributes of 3-D Shapes. We will also work on composite shapes.
Writing: Next week we will write an informative "how to" telling how to brush your teeth. We will plan and work together to write the steps and then the students will do their final draft on their own.
