February 7-11

This week, we celebrated the Lunar New Year by learning how to write numbers in Chinese and making our very own paper lanterns! The students also discovered how to fold a red pocket and learned that we give these envelopes to others as a symbol of good luck. We wish all Kindergarten families good health, joy, and prosperity!

Shoe Box and Plastic Bag- Please send an empty shoe box, labelled with your child’s name, to school on Monday. We will be decorating these boxes and the children will use them to collect any Valentine cards and treats that are brought in by their friends on Monday, February 14th. Please also provide a plastic bag so that it’s easier for your child to carry their shoe box once filled!
  3. Theme Binder/Self-Reflection- If you haven’t already done so, please empty out your child’s Theme Binder and complete the 2 Stars and a Wish sheet (found in the pocket of their binder). We ask that you return the empty binder along with their completed self-reflection on Monday. A copy of the self-reflection sheet is attached below, if needed.
  4. My Read Well” book– Please review the letter of the week and use the “Parent Prompt” questions (found on the bottom of the page) with your child.
    • If you notice that your child has not finished the back of their Letter Record page in class, please brainstorm with them three words that begin with that letter. Then, have them write down the three words on the dotted lines and draw their corresponding pictures in the blank box.

Friendly Reminders:

  1. Homework folders– These will continue to be sent home every day. Please check the folders daily and send them back to school every day as your child is expected to hand them in each morning.
  2. Valentine’s Day– If your child plans on giving Valentine’s Day cards or treats to their classmates, please bring them to school on this day (Monday, February 14th). Keep in mind that we have 29 students in the class. Please be sure that any treats sent are nut-free and individually wrapped. Children are also welcome to come to school wearing red, white, and pink on this day.
  3. Scholastic Reading Club– A new Scholastic flyer for February was placed in your child’s homework folder this week! If you would like to order (optional), please enter Kindergarten’s class code RC498336 at checkout so that we can receive rewards for our classroom! Thank you in advance for your support.
