Happy February! This week we will be learning about the Ch digraph, the sight words down and on and the –on word family. In Math, we will start counting and writing to 100. In the afternoons, we will start our Unit on Famous Americans and National Symbols.

Interims will come home on February 5th. There is still time if anyone would like to sign up for a conference.

Please continue to read at home and practice those sight words (I check them every Wednesday).

Don’t forget that homework is due on Friday. This is an important way for your child to extend what they have learned in school to their home.

Enjoy the Super Bowl and hopefully Phil will predict an early Spring!
