A Note from Mrs. Elil

The calendar might say that February is the shortest month but we have a lot of exciting events happening and new things to learn in February.

We talk about Groundhog day, Chinese New Year( Did you know that 2019 is the Year of the Pig?) and Presidents’ Day and learn fun facts about all of these special days. We also celebrate 100 Days of School by displaying our special 100 day posters, and visiting every Kindergarten Classroom doing a fun 100 activity. We also hand out our Valentines and have a party for Valentines Day. February is Black History Month and Dental Health Month and we will be talking about these themes as well!

We have transitioned  so well into our 8 new centers and have fun learning new things and playing different themed games in these new literacy centers.

Our Magic Tree House Books for this month are Midnight on the Moon and Eve of the Emperor Penguin.

In Math we will learn the basics of subtraction in Chapter 6 and move on to Chapter 7 where we learn how to represent, count  and write 11-19.

As a school we are focussing on Kindness this month, and students who exhibit random acts of kindness are rewarded with Special kindness tickets. 

Looking ahead, the last week of February is Read Across America Week. We will have an Author Visit, Spring Book Fair, BEAR Night, an assembly and Classroom Exchange all taking place in the last week of February.
