The Super Bowl party, hosted by Tami Workman and Bennette Johnson, is postponed until this Friday, February 4th. Thanks to those of you who have already sent in supplies! Remember to have your kindergartner wear their favorite team colors to school on Friday. We will graph our favorite teams.
Friday is also when we will celebrate our 100th day of school. We will practice counting to 100 several times throughout the day. It should be a very fun day in kindergarten!

The kindergartners enjoyed playing a math game today called "Hide and Seek". They needed to roll a die, then move their marker that many spaces. When they landed on a number, they needed to say what the number was, and write the number on their white board. This was a fun way to practice identifying numbers 10-31!

Thanks to the Beartooth PTA, our kindergartners have been enjoying their own subscription of "Time for Kids" magazine each week. They love reading these, and hopefully you are enjoying reading them together at home and doing the activities each week. Thanks, PTA!

For the Winter Carnival, our class will be doing a raffle for a Family Fun Night Basket. All proceeds from the raffle will be used to purchase needed supplies and learning tools for our room. If you would be willing to donate an item for the basket, it would be appreciated. Some ideas are: popcorn, snacks, gift cards for pizza, board games, DVDs, movie gift certificates, etc. I will need all items by Wednesday, January 26th. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! This should be a fun evening.

This week we have been learning about penguins. The kindergartners have loved learning about these interesting birds. We made these cute penguin pictures, and wrote sentences with facts that we learned about penguins. We decorated them with puffy "snow" (part shaving cream, part glue). This was a project the kids loved!

One student has lost a pair of girls’ brown size 6 snowpants from Target. If you happen to have them at home, please send back to school. It is very helpful if you write your child’s name and phone # inside their winter clothing, as we share a hallway with three other classes and things often get “mixed up”. Also, remind your son or daughter to keep track of their things as best as they can, by hanging them on their coat hook and keeping hats, gloves, etc. in coat pockets or sleeves. Thank you!
