Mrs. Grimmett's Class
Getting Carried Away in First Grade
Sept. 25 is picture day! Students may wear dress code or BETTER!
Scholastic book orders are due on Sept. 26. I will place the order that night, so make sure you get it in!
Reading logs will be due Sept. 30. Make sure you have read for 21 days this month with your students!
In the near future (next week), we will discuss creating stories with interesting beginnings! We will use fairy tales and try to incorporate ideas from those stories into our own!
Next week we will be working on text-to-text and text-to-self connections! How can we connect to the books we are reading? Do they remind us of something we have experienced? Do they remind us of other books we have read?
Keep reading with your kids at home and writing in their reading logs! You have know idea how much of a difference reading with your child on a daily basis can make. Even if you are reading to them, you are showing them an example of what reading should look like and sounds like. Don't be afraid to ask them questions about the books and discuss what you are reading!
Work with your kids on writing their numbers the correct direction. I know this is something that kids struggle with (especially 3, 5, and 6).
Also, make sure that homework is completed and sent back the next day.
Most of our science work will be kept in our journals in class, so there will not be very much sent home through out the year for science.
We will also take a tour of the school and practice our mapping skills by creating our our maps!
