January Update

Welcome back to a new year and a new decade! I just wanted to let you know about a few things happening in January.

January Calendar

The January calendar has been sent home.

Show and Tell

We will be having Show and Tell on January 7 and 8. They are broken into two groups. Your child has been given his/her date. They are asked to fill out a sheet to help them during their presentation. When considering what to bring, please keep in mind to avoid larger or breakable items. O have told them it should be able to fit in their bookbag. Thank you!

Supplies

Please ensure your child has returned with the supplies they brought home before Christmas. It might also be a good time to ask if they need supplies. (Many of them have lost their rulers and scissors.) Thank you!

Nightly Reading

Students are expected to read 4-5 times per week, for 20 minutes each night. As an incentive, I will be sending home a Reading "Bingo" for each child to fill out. This is a monthly activity. It can be returned at the end of January, at which time they will be able to pick out of the 'treasure chest' as a reward for getting "BINGO".

I look forward to many successes in this new year! Take care and be safe.


February 10th Email (sent to parents/guardians)

Good morning everyone

I hope you are doing well and staying safe. As you know, I have started a 'homework' nightly reading program which began in January. I would now like to include writing to this program. This package is only provided to encourage extra practice at home, it is optional. They do not have to pass the writing in to me, if they do not want to. But I will read it, if they do. They do get a bingo prize for the nightly reading though. I have attached a copy of two writing 'prompt' sheets (Note: I cannot attach the sheets in this document). These sheets can be used in the event that your child is sick or otherwise unable to come to school. Note: These writing sheets will be sent home with students in paper copy.

As for math, we are currently working on addition of 2-digit numbers, with and without regrouping (some of you will know this as 'carrying'). I have attached two sheets, with answers, to show you what we are doing to help guide you with this concept. There are many resources on-line to help you/them with this (i.e. Khan Academy is one such resource). You can make up addition sentences for them to complete for extra practice, if you wish to do so.

Valentine's Day is coming up on Friday. I am postponing the celebrations to a later time. I will have a small celebration on Friday, but we will do a full celebration at a later time, to be announced, as things settle down. Please let your children know that they will not miss out on this fun day!

Please stay safe and take care!


February 11th Email (Update)


Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all safe and well. As many of you have probably already heard, in-school instruction is suspended until at least Friday, Feb. 26th. Online learning for your child will begin on Monday, Feb. 15th. In the coming days, you will receive lots of information from me/office concerning; picking up chromebooks (for those who expressed a need back in the fall), a daily schedule for your child (which will include online/offline work and activities), online passwords for your child for various websites (which can also be found at the front of their agendas). Your child has been taught how to use these tools and has been using them in the classroom. It is suggested that you provide them with a quiet working space, pencil/paper and their electronic devices (whether yours or borrowed from the school). Unlike last year, evaluation will continue so it is important that your child comes to and participates in "online school". Finally, attendance will be taken daily. Please ensure you notify me if they will not be in attendance on a given day.

Lots more to come! I look forward to going through this learning experience together. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns, and I will do my best to help and support you in any way that I can. Stay safe and take care!

Amanda
