We are launching our language workshop unit on problem solving. The essential question we will focus on for the upcoming weeks is Why is problem solving important? Students will discover that problem solving strategies can be used to work through every day challenges.
A journal prompt that will be given throughout the year is: write everything you know about the number_______.
Our Veteran's Day Walk and fall parties will be on Wednesday, Oct. 26. Please send the permission slips for the walk to school if you haven't done so already. Kids may bring an appropriate costume in a bag to school on 10/26 for the party if they choose to.
Please check your class Shutterfly site for updates on party donations.
Many thanks to Tim Fleming for visiting our first graders and teaching them about fire safety. Rose Glen also had a visit from the Town of Waukesha FD!
We have two upcoming field trips planned. We will be going to the planetarium on November 21st. The planetarium is located at Retzer Nature Center and we welcome parents to meet us there to view the program with us.
December 14 all first graders will be heading to the First Stage Theater to see the Rudolph production. We hope to take some chaperones to the theater, however, we have a limited number of tickets to see Rudolph. Additional information and permission slips will be coming home in the near future.
