First Grade News February 5, 2016

What have we been up to this week?

- In reading, we discussed point of view. This is a tricky concept for many students as it often requires making inferences! Encourage your child to tell you what a character may be feeling using text clues while reading at home.


- In writing, we practiced writing about our opinion. At the end of the week, students wrote their opinion about the book The Day the Crayons Came Home. This book was a huge hit in our classroom!


- In Social Studies, we learned about the Statue of Liberty. We were able to watch a live feed of the New York City harbor while we completed our work!



(Remember that I do not have all of my homeroom kids in math.

Be sure to ask your child what he/she is doing in math class!)

Take Note

- Today, notes were sent home with students regarding missing homework. Right now, nearly every student in the class has missing homework! Please check your child's folder for a note. If your child received a note, it will outline what is missing and when it is due. As always, let me know if you have any questions!


- eLearning Surveys were sent home last Friday, and we are still missing a few. If you have not returned your child's survey, please do so ASAP!


- Starting on the 6th snow day or any day after Spring Break, BCSC will have an eLearning Day. Students will NOT report to school on an eLearning Day, but will complete assignments online through itsLearning. To learn more, click here.
