This week I will be meeting with learners individually to go over their district writing assessment. I can't wait! It's so fun to look at how much their writing has grown and these one on one conferences are a great way to do some reteaching and reinforcement.
Word Work: no list this week due to the short week
addition fact fluency
Social Studies / Science
identifying contributions of historical figures: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman
The Fun Run Kick off will be Tuesday afternoon, February 16 at 2:00 p.m. I'm sure the learners will come home pumped up and excited! Thank you in advance for whatever way you can support this fundraiser for our PTO.
Our PTO is in need of additional volunteers to fill the board positions for next year. We have many talented parents in 1A. We would love to have some of you share your insights and expertise in this way. It is a great way to impact your child's education.
