First Grade News
Mrs. Baker, Room 22
What a wonderful first week back to school! Thank you for coming to our Back to School Night, it was a pleasure to connect with all of you as we begin the new school year. A big THANK YOU to our many volunteers who have offered to help in our classroom this year! I have enjoyed getting to know your children, and I feel very lucky to be a part of Oak Creek Elementary!
Last week we brushed up on our reading, writing, and math skills. We learned our classroom procedures and chose our very first Top Dog, Lorelai! We are very proud of our reading stamina, reaching 9 minutes and we are looking forward to more progress next week!
Don't forget to bring your library books back tomorrow! Hope you had a wonderful weekend together!
Next Week: We will begin our science unit on solids, liquids, and gases. In this unit, students will conduct many fun experiments. We will also begin math instruction using our math curriculum "Go Math."
