21 Day Kindness Challenge- This month we are focusing on kindness. We are participating in the 21 day Kindness Challenge. For the 21 days we are in school students are encouraged to do at least 5 kind acts a day. A kind act could be as simple as telling another student that they have a nice shirt. Students also fill out kindness strips when they see someone else performing an act of kindness. These strips are made into a chain. Currently the chain has made it all the way around the gym and we are working on a second round!

Fire Prevention Week-
This week we had local firefighters come to our school to teach our students about fire safety. On Tuesday firefighters came to our classroom and talked about making a plan in case of a fire. On Thursday they brought an ambulance for us to see and the smoke house so we could practice crawling out of a smoky room.

Reading- We are currently working on being able to identify facts and details in story.

Students should be able to find facts in a story and give details that support that fact. For example, in the story The Cat in the Hat one fact is that the cat is mischievous. Details that support this fact are the cat brings out Thing 1 and Thing 2 who start wrecking the house. Ask your child to find at least one fact and supporting detail in their story.

Remember to have your child read at least 20 minutes every day at home and fill out those reading logs.

Math- We are working on solving multiple step word problems, where the equations are within 20. Students should be able to figure out what numbers to use, what operation to use, and which order to use them in. 

Health and Wellness- We're back to school and the kids are sharing germs! Remind your child to wash their hands frequently with soap and warm water. Also, remind them to cover their sneezes and coughs with their arm instead of their hand. You can take extra precautions by washing their lunch boxes, backpacks and coats frequently.
