Mrs. Darnell 1st Grade

Dear Parent,

Wow! It is hard to believe this is our last week before our Fall break. We have a fun filled week planned. We will be making our annual first grade village. The students will be constructing log cabins and teepees; along with learning about the relationship between Squanto and the pilgrims.

Thank you again for all the wonderful art volunteers. The kids loved it!


We will not have a spelling test this week. We will continue our weekly spelling tests after the Fall break.

We had a great time doing surgical procedures to words and creating contractions. Contractions can be difficult so please have your child review with the video below.



In math we will review addition and subtraction. Please continue to practice addition and subtraction facts at home. Thank you!
