Holiday Performance

The First Grade Holiday Performance is Friday, December 14th at 9:00 am in the FAB.

We will have a cast party in the classroom immediately following the performance. I will have a sign up on the wiki by Monday pm for you to sign up for the cast party.

What we will be learning this week:

* Review of Language Arts Unit 2

* Review all spelling words, skills, and vocabulary words from unit 2. Take the Unit 2 test.

* Math: Chapter 2: Addition and Subtraction (Fact Families)

*Writing: We are using time words to help us sequence a story. First, Next, Then, Finally.

* Social Studies: winter holidays around the world

*Science: Weather

We have been studying nouns over the last few weeks and they can be tricky. If you can reinforce them at home that would be great!

Common noun: a person, place or thing (boy, park, ball)

Proper noun: the name of a person, place or thing. (ex: Mr. Chuck, Solana Santa Fe School)

Plural nouns: more than one! (desks, dogs, toys)

Community Service Project: Please send in any new, unwrapped toys or non-perishable food for the Holiday Baskets.

Family Science Night is Wed., Dec 5. Try and come, it is a fun event!

We need buttons and small shells for a class project, if you have any around the house that you can spare please send them in as soon as possible.

Once again, we are in need of emergency snacks, plastic protective sleeves for binders (our memory books) and eraser tops for pencils.

We need to borrow some hobby horses for our holiday performance if you happen to have one at home.

Thank you for all your support.
