Classroom News and Upcoming Dates

Classroom News

We are coming close to the end of first grade! I can't believe how fast the school year flew by!!! I have become so attached to your little ones, I am starting to get sad it's almost over.

In the last few weeks we will complete end of the year reading and math assessments and start working on second grade basics. We are testing tomorrow morning in reading so please make sure your child gets a good nights rest and a good breakfast .

Please continue tornado math and reading. Most students are starting to read chapter books. This is harder because they are no longer using picture clues and they are required to think about their reading. But they CAN do this! They need to work on their reading stamina and The Magic Tree House books are a great introduction to chapter book reading. Please make sure they fill out the activity sheets immediately after each chapter so their reading comprehension is fresh. All students will receive a regular guided reader on and off in between books to help practice fluency and so I can assess their reading.

Please have all library books returned by tomorrow to turn for the remainder of the school year. As we bring this year to a close, books will no longer be checked out.
