Mrs. Roberts' First Grade News

December 14th - December 18th


Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. I love warm weather, I just wish it would cool down to help me get into the Christmas spirit!

In class this week we will have fun with Christmas literature and we will focus a lot on our writing skills. We will also spend a lot of time reviewing reading and math concepts. No spelling this week and no math homework. Instead I would like your child to practice with Raz-kids online. If you need your log-in information again, please let me know.

PLEASE send in your party items by tomorrow so we can get a count of what we still need to purchase before Wednesday.

Also, on Wednesday, please have your child wear their pajamas to school. We will have fun and stay cozy in our winter pajamas!

Also, please know that each book is part of a set so please help your child keep up with their guided reading books. Thank you!!!
