Dear Parents,
It appeared to me that the dads definitely had fun on Friday! It was heart-warming watching a room filled with dads playing with their children. I must say, they worked very hard to get to as many centers as they could. What a wonderful memory! I just had an upperclassman say to me on Friday, "Mrs. Bixby, I just LOVED that day!" Cute!

ILA - Integrated Language Arts
  • Of course we know that Mr Dd, "Dazzling Dancer", arrived with his "Donuts with Daddy" idea. The children told me that the Letter People have the best ideas!!
  • We completed all of Dd's work always noticing the difference between b and d.
  • Drew our dads and wrote about them for our class book and journal page.
  • Read the booklet "I Love Dogs" and "My Dd Book".
  • Participated in phonics review games.
  • Enjoyed the choral reading of the story/song "Down by the Bay...." and practiced rhyming words.
  • Listened to and discussed stories "Annie the Donut" and "My Daddy Snores".
  • Created a dalmatian dog and wrote d words.
  • Played a dogbone game by reading sight words.
  • Had fun with "dot" art.
  • Discriminated d/not d words (beginning and ending of a word).
  • Read with Mrs. Bixby practicing fluency.
  • Practiced reading all sight words and daily sentences.
*NEW WORDS FOR THIS WEEK ARE: must, under, but, who.

RELIGION
  • Prayers and prayer share.
  • Prayed for our dads.
  • Remembered that God is their heavenly father and that God wants us to talk to Him just like we do to our earthly dads!

NOTES and REMINDERS
  • *check the paper that was sent home last week with our activities for Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Briefly, Tuesday is our Valentine exchange. Leave "to:" empty or generic "friend".
  • Wednesday, Ash Wednesday - we'll attend Mass with our buddies AND it's our 100 Day of school celebration! Bring 100 things in a baggie to count and talk about.
  • Monday, February 19 "President's Day" NO SCHOOL.
  • You'll be receiving a list of dates for "Lunch On The Loft" with me! Please mark your child's date on the calendar. I'll get them from the lunch room!
  • "Show & Tell" This Friday...be ready to tell about your favorite uncle. (if you don't have one - a favorite friend, grandpa etc.)
  • So many "thanks" to so many who helped to make Donuts with Daddy wonderful. God bless you. Also, thanks to the Pace Family for a love-filled loft and to the Hoover Family for helping to create a new flower shop! You are all a gift to me and to your children.

Bless You,
Jan
