Picture Yourself Growing in First Grade
This week, we prepared and organized to showcase our "Best in Show" stories with a mini-celebration. Even, superheroes came to SAVE our writing! They fixed up and edited their stories to get them ready to be shared with the world!
To end the week, we had a fishbowl share to enjoy all of our hard work! The writers were able to share their story with many of their friends and talk about their collections! We are proud of our hard work!
Next week, we will transform into "Review" writers!
At the end of the week, the mathematicians in 1S helped me solve a problem I had. I needed to make fruit salad for a party and I wanted to double my recipe. The students worked with unifix cubes to help me create my shopping list for the grocery store!
READ ACROSS FIRST GRADE
What is the NIGHT ZOOKEEPER?
The Night Zookeeper is a creative writing platform that allows children to use their imaginations to create animals and write stories about them. There are missions and challenges! We can even connect with other classes to see how we compare in words written to help celebrate World Creative Writing Month (March)!
Your child can log in to the Night Zookeeper at home.
Login: Your child's first name and last initial (ex. KristinS)
(Since it is case sensitive - I will be sending home your child's account information this week)

Reminders and Dates

* Please send your child's snack in a bag separate from his or her lunch. Our lunch boxes head down to the cafeteria in the morning and are not kept in our classroom during the day. This makes unpacking much easier! Thanks for your help!
* Guided Reading - thank you for your support in reading at home. Please read the books that come home with your child at night and return them to school the next day. Many times, we use the books the next day for a follow up activity.
