First Grade News

April 4 - April 8

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone enjoyed their time off from school! With only 32 days of school ahead of us we are ready to hit the ground running and make the most out of the rest of our year.

Whats happening in class:

  • Reading- We are finishing up our unit on wondering with non-fiction
  • Writing- We are finishing up working on Informative writing and will soon be starting opinion writing
  • Social Studies- We are learning about how/what communities provide for families.
  • Science- Life cycles of plants and animals. Last week we planted seeds to plant in the garden at school.
  • Math- We will begin addition and subtraction to 40.

First Grade Field Trip

On April 28 we will be going to the Coterie theater to see a show for our field trip. We are allowed to take TWO parent volunteers from each class. I will take the first two parents that send me an note or email saying that they would like to go. The two parents going will have to pay $5.50 for their ticket and have an approved background check with the district. No siblings may attend.
