Mrs. Roberts' First Grade News

March 21st - March 24th


Here's what we're learning this week:

I hope you had a wonderful spring break. Hopefully you were able to relax and enjoy the time off!

This week we will continue focusing on fairy tales, continue 2-D and 3-D shape attributes in geometry and start exploring the forest biome in science. Spelling test will be on Thursday since there is no school on Friday. Our Easter celebration will also take place on Thursday. Please see the note in your child's folder for more information.
