September 19-23

Welcome to this week's edition of First Grade Weekly Explorations! Each week, we will share materials to supplement our lessons for the week. The newsletter includes videos and links for all subject areas: ELA, math, Science and Social Studies. As work is completed, make sure to send pictures to your teacher, through Class Dojo or Schoology!
