Dear Parent,

It is so hard to believe that we have just six more weeks until the last day of school. This last semester has flown by so quickly! Even though it is a busy time of year, please make sure your child is still completing their homework and studying their spelling words each night.


Spelling test will continue as normal. Here are the words from Spelling List 20: by, say, for, even, point, nation, portion, sliding, September, and carnation

1. Please eat after you clean your jeans.

2. The meat and beans are getting cool.

***Please make sure your child is studying spelling every day. Sidewalk chalk is always a fun way to practice spelling on a nice spring afternoon.


In math, we will begin our unit on telling time. This is an important and sometimes challenging concept for little first grade brains. Please help by asking your child frequently what time it is. You could also invest in a cheap watch with hour and minute hands for them to practice.


In Science, we will be kicking off our animal research. This is such a fun unit for the students. It is student driven learning! They are so eager to work on it each day and are continuing to learn more about their animals. I think you will be impressed by what they have learned!
