Important Information

No Spelling Next Week

Due to last week's Holiday Show and holiday crafts we didn't cover the past 2 weeks Language Arts units as closely as I'd like. So, this week we won't move onto the the next unit and will spend time on the past few units.


Holiday Movie

On Thursday, the first grade will watch a holiday movie, drink hot coco, and they can wear PJ's. Please also send in a pillow and blanket or sleeping bag.

Nathan

Nathan presented his family traditions and the class was very engaged in how his family celebrates the holidays. There's still 5 more days for your child to share their family traditions.

Garden

We ate lettuce and kale that was grown in our garden then transplanted the turnip plants the class planted a few weeks ago.

Holiday Show

Thank you to everyone for joining us at the first grade holiday show. The kids LOVED preforming for you! We also really enjoyed the delicious treats. A BIG thank you to both first grade's room parents for putting it all together.

Wonderful Room Parents!

Math

This week we found patterns starting with 2 and counting by 2's, word problems, coloring 100 charts, and many finished the first book of tile math. Twice a week parent volunteers help students complete 2 pages with 10 math problems per page. A complete dog math page represents 200 math problems!

Snowman Writing

We learned how to build a snowman through a snowman 101 video then wrote steps how we would build our own snowman. With partners we shared our writing.

Big Buddies

With help from our 4th grade buddies we made holiday cards to bring cheer to an elderly home.

Gifts

Thanks for donating a gift to our sister school. Santa will pass them out next week!
