We are starting a fun week here at SJA! This week is Valentine’s Day
and we are going to celebrate our friendship and kindness in our P.J.'s.
Students are invited to bring their "stuffies" for the day. We will be
playing some fun games and we may even enjoy a little treat!
I have seng home a list of the first names of all of the students in the
class. If you and your child decide to send in cards or treats, feel free
to use this list. Another option is to just have your child write their
name on the card. Also, please do not feel obligated to send anything.
I know it can be difficult with your child being part of two classes. We
will have plenty of kindness and treats to make it a great day here!
Here are some of the activities we will be doing this week to celebrate
our friendships this week!
We have read a story, There Was An Old Lady who Swallowed a
Rose. We will be using this Valentines themed book to reinforce
rhyming and sequencing. It follows the same pattern as many of the
other "Old Lady" books we have read this year.
We will also look at a story about the Valentine adventures of Amelia
Bedelia. We will use this book as a springboard for activities about
figurative language, following directions, vocabulary studies and
looking at the components of narrative stories.
We will be using Valentine's Task Cards to help us infer information.
"My Valentine is for an animal that is long and thin. This animal
slithers. This animal might stick out its tongue"!
To practice our reading and speaking skills, the students will
participate in a fun heart game involving reading, telling stories and
active participation tasks!
These activities will be going on all week! Check out our Twitter

Just a reminder that your child's Term 1 report card and IEP will be
coming home soon. These reports are completed as a collaboration
between myself and the homeschool. They are sent home from your
If you would like to discuss your child's progress at all, either on the
phone or in person, I am happy to talk with you. I will send home an
interview request form at the end of the week.
Some schools will be including the Term 2 IEP's in with the reports
from Term 1. This means you will be receiving the grades and
evaluations of their progress on their expectations from Term 1 as
well as the new IEP goals that your child will be working toward in
Term 2. Some schools will be sending the Term 2 expectations home
at a later date.
Regardless of when you will be receiving the Term 2 document, I am
happy to go over it with you as well. There is a lot of information in
those documents and your voice as the parents is important. Your
input on the IEP is encouraged!
Thanks for reading! As always, let me know if you have any questions
Have a great week ☺
