Mrs. Hermsen’s Classroom News
January 19, 2018


Hello! Can you believe that we have less than two weeks left in January? How quickly this month is flying by!

Enclosed in your child’s folder you will find his/her report card for the first semester! I am so proud of the students and the progress they have made since the beginning of the year! You may keep the report card as I have a saved copy on my computer to use at the end of the year! However, please send back the envelope so that we can use them again after second semester! Thanks!

In Religion this week we have been learning about prayer and the “Our Father.” Please help your child practice this at home! We also began learning about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and how we can peacemakers! In Math, we continued comparing groups of objects using the terms, “more” and “fewer!” In Reading, we continued our unit focusing on ANIMALS. This entailed hearing stories entitled, “Animal Babies ABC” and “The Ugly Duckling.” Ask your child to tell about these stories! We also focused on the word, “play” and the letter “Ff.” We also have been working on words that end with –it. These include, bit, fit, pit, hit, kit, lit and sit. Feel free to work on these at home as well!

Next we will be celebrating our 100th day of school on Tuesday, January 30. Next week I will send a letter explaining an activity your child can complete for the 100th day! Catholic Schools ek will take place Jan 29-Feb 2. It is a week full of fun for the kiddos! Please refer to the informational sheet that was in the parent pack yesterday. Thanks!
Alex was our star student last week. Alex is happy boy who has an awesome sense of humor! His giggle warms my heart! Alex has a pet guinea pig named Bella and a gerbil named Joey. Alex’s mom brought Bella into school for a visit. Each of the kiddos even had the chance to hold Bella. Alex loves blueberries and strawberries. His favorite book is Dragons Love Tacos. His favorite tv shows are Wild Kratts and Dinosaur Train. shared his dinosaurs as well as one of his favorite games, Catch the Fox. ’s mom even came in and read one of Alex’s favorite stories. When Alex grows up he would like to be one of the following; a policeman, a dump truck driver, a fireman or a house builder. Way to go Alex!

Finally, I want to remind you that I value your input as a parent! If you have questions or concerns about anything, please do not hesitate to ask! Thanks so much!
