Mrs. Kelley's 1st Grade Class Newsletter

April 2016

Hello Families,

Next week we will kick off our plant study. We will complete various reading activities, observe our terrariums, and view foods that are roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. (Examples-carrots, celery, lettuce, broccoli, etc.) Next Friday, April 15th, we will conduct a hands on study about plant parts. Yesterday I had my sub send home a letter that tells about a “salad tasting” that we are having on Friday, April 15th. This tasting will help your child experience and learn about the parts of a plant. Please send in the item that is circled on the paper. The item is due on Wednesday, April 13th.

As always, thank you for helping us make learning fun!

The Homestead Spring Book Fair is coming soon. Our class will preview the books this Friday so you will see a "wish list" come home on Friday. I signed up for our class to buy books on Tuesday, April 19th. However, your child can bring money any day that week to purchase books before or after school. If you send money, please place it in a sealed envelope or zippie with their name and Kelley on the front.
