Good morning parents!
  I hope everyone has had a good week! We've had a great week here in the classroom. The kiddos are having excellent behavior- I'm not moving clips much at all anymore :) Tomorrow's Show and Tell is for the letter U. Please help them find something that starts with a U. 
  We do not have school on Monday, January 21 for MLK Jr. Day. We had a social studies lesson yesterday about MLK Jr and the positive effect he had on the world. We discussed the importance of showing love and respect to everyone, regardless of the color of the skin. They really took to hear the conversation and I love seeing the love them show each other! If you have time, please have a conversation with them at home about MLK Jr. 
  Tuesday, January 29th will be our 100th day of school! This is a big deal in Kindergarten, and your child is invited to dress like he/she is 100 years old! Be creative :) We'll also be busy throughout the day celebrating in different ways. I'll send a sign-up genius later today that'll ask for ingredients to make a special snack for the day! If you have any questions, please let me know.
