Look what we learned:
· In religion, we learned about Lent. We discovered that Lent is a time to prepare for Easter by
doing good deeds and showing kindness to others.
· We introduced the star shape this week. We read The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss and made our
own Sneetch craft. This story also reminds us to be kind to others. We learned some new
star songs and played a new name game.
· We are beginning to practice tracing lines. This will lead into learning to trace letters and
· Snack fee for the second half of the year is now due.
· Book Orders are due Feb. 26th.
· Please remember to call the school office if your child will be absent.
Fun at Home:

· Play “Who took the Cookie from the Cookie Jar.” Write your family members’ names on paper
and take turn showing a card. Substitute the person’s name in the song each round.
· Practice counting to 10. Count everything — shoes, number of stair steps, pennies, toys.
· Using a highlighter, draw horizontal lines on a piece of paper. Give your child a pencil to trace
over the line.
· We finally had a normal week! Well, a mostly normal week! In religion, we learned about
Lent. We discovered that Lent is a time to prepare for Easter by doing good deeds and
showing kindness to others. The children will be bringing home an activity sheet from our

begin learning about the letter P next week. We will celebrate with Pajama Day next Friday.
· We also introduced the number 8. We found the Touch Points and had fun with our counting

Seuss character in honor of his birthday.

stairs with Miss Anita or by themselves.
