The Student Council has declared tomorrow "Hero Day" at school. If your kindergartner mentions this to you, please let them know that they are welcome to dress as their favorite hero (superhero or other hero such as fireman, policeman, mom, dad, etc). They shouldn't wear a complete costume - no masks, weapons, etc.

The kindergartners did a wonderful job of writing about keeping their teeth healthy. I was so impressed with their writing! We attached them to these pictures they drew of themselves with marshmallow teeth. We have learned so much about good dental hygiene this week.

We have been playing this game to practice our sight words. I hide a little dot behind one of these hearts, and the kids take turns spelling sight words and trying to guess which heart the dot is hidden behind. They love this game, and it would be a fun and easy thing for you to try at home, too. We also play with numbers and simple addition problems.

We made predictions about whether or not the groundhog would see his shadow, and graphed our predictions. The students had to cut apart sentences (either "Yes, he will." or "No, he will not.") and glue them back together in the correct sequence on their papers.

On Valentine's Day (Tues the 14th) we will be exchanging Valentine cards with one another. You are encouraged to send Valentines for every student in our class (there are 23). I am not sending home a "name list" for the Valentines. Please just have your son or daughter write their name in the "from" section and leave the "to" part blank. Thank you! If you send in any candy or treats with the Valentines, please remember to not include anything with nuts or peanut butter. We appreciate your consideration!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you to everyone who sent in supplies for our groundhog cupcakes, and to the Richards and Piccioni families for baking the cupcakes. The kids loved them! A video of the kids eating the yummy treats is posted above. Happy Groundhog Day!
