Ms. Ward's First Grade
Newsletter Week 23
The STAR: Ethan!
For shared reading, we read another Cinderella story, this time hailing from Korea. While it was a very different Cinderella story than the ones we read before, we really enjoyed figuring out the similarities between our new story and the more traditional versions. The students are very observant when it comes to listening comprehension! It is wonderful to see their interest in books continue to grow as the year progresses.
XtraMath is a website that allows students to practice math facts (with a virtual teacher) at their own level, moving along at their own pace. As they get better at math, XtraMath will become more challenging. This will be done at school and at home. XtraMath may be assigned for homework occasionally, but is encouraged whenever your child wants to do it.
Please take note of the flyer that I have sent home in the folders today, as it contains steps on how to set up your home computer for easy access to XtraMath. If you have any questions about this new program, feel free to email me! I am so excited to create little mathematicians!
Thanks so much for being an amazing group!! Have a fantastic weekend!
