Grace's 1st Quarter Service Project

Grace School has assigned each grade level a service project for each quarter. First grade was given a project to honor our local fire fighters. Each student was randomly assigned an item to bring to put into a gift box. Please look for this note to come home tomorrow, September 12th. Please send the assigned item to school on or before Friday, September 23rd. There is a checklist, so please write your child's name on a sticky note or the bag if you drop the item off. Looking at the list, each item can be purchased for less than $5. I am challenging my class to double up on their item to really step up the love from First Grade!! I will double up my donation as well. Special Brag Tags will be given to students who accept the challenge!

Math Vocabulary Cards

Unit 1's Math test will include 10 vocabulary words for addition and subtraction terms. We talk about these words in class daily as we use them in our lessons. I have put together a set of flash cards to help your child practice as needed. I labeled and laminated envelopes that I would like to stay in the zipper pocket when not practicing. I will switch out vocabulary cards for each of the eight math units. Students may pair up and practice these cards in class as well, so please keep these in the zipper pocket after studying.

Sign & Return Papers

Sign and Return papers will be sent home this Wednesday and are due back on Friday. This set of papers will only have 1 test and the others are some class activities that have been reviewed. Now that we are getting settled, you can expect to see sign papers the week following each test. Please sign and have your child return the folder by Friday.
