Highlights from Week 22: February 8-12

Hello Families!

I hope you're having a nice weekend! Remember no school tomorrow for Presidents Day.

This week was a great week in First Grade. We welcomed another student to our classroom, Mike. He came on a great week, with Art Lit and our Friendship Party on Friday, it was quite the week to join our great group of kids.

In Writing this week, we completed our first turtle report and began another on frogs. In math we continued our work in unit 7, where we are learning how to compare numbers. Our Top Dogs have been studying the weather each day, acting as our class meteorologist. We are watching how the weather changes and also learning more about the clouds.

Ethan will be an awesome Top Dog this week! We can't wait to watch him lead our students down the halls and also find kids who are following our school rules, being appropriate, safe and kind.

Report Cards came home on Friday. Please let me know if you did not see your child's report card, and I can always send another home.

Check out our classroom updates, and as always, be sure to contact me with any questions. Hope you're enjoying some family time this weekend.

Welcome Mike!

We were excited to add another new student to our classroom this week. Just like before, the kids were anxious to make Mike a sign to welcome him. With help from friends in the classroom, Mike has been learning our school routines and procedures. We are lucky to add another great kid to room 22.

Thanks to all who made Art Literacy a success again this week!
