**Reminder**

We are looking forward to our class Valentine’s Day Party this Wednesday, February 14th from 11:00-12:00. Please send in Valentine cards for the students in our class today or tomorrow and your child will pass those out to each of our Valentine bags. Thank you so much for all of the decorations you have sent in for our bags. Our class had so much fun making their Valentine bags and they all turned out beautiful!

Also, this week we are working on subtraction using real objects to tell subtraction stories. We are going to read the book, Peter Rabbit and then use carrots to make a subtraction story. If you are able to send in a bag of carrots, it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your help!
