Hi Parents!

Please find in binders tonight the homework for this week.  The book is called Lent Reminds us of Jesus.  There is a focus on the word “of” in the book.  On every page, your child will either need to write the word “of” or cut out the letters and glue the word on.  Of is a tricky word for students.  A lot of the students want to say “off.”  Please discuss the word as you are reading together.   This book can stay home with your child.

Please let me know if you are missing any resources from your binder.  Last week I sent home new March resources and the snack calendar.  I know I had a lot of absences and students leaving early, so I very well may have missed several!  Just let me know what you need!

I began testing for popcorn words/sight words last week for February.  I also went back and retested many students on old lists if they hadn’t earned a star for the old lists.  I am about done, but we have had many absences, so I still have a few more to do.  Overall, I was very impressed with the improvement!  I can really tell when a student has been practicing at home.  I really appreciate you working with your child!  It makes a big difference!  They are so proud when they earn a star for knowing all their words 😊

If you ordered a “Fat Tuesday Fun Pack” from Student Council your child will receive it on Tuesday.  We will be attending mass on both Ash Wednesday and Thursday this week.
