Tens and Doubles
If your child does not know his/her combinations of ten - please practice using the "penny plate" game, or play "tens go fish," using cards to make pairs of ten. If you have any questions about these games, let me know.

Introduction to Revising
What Do You Do?
Motion is all around us.
- What does it take to get something moving? (a push or a pull)
- How can we change motion?
- Why can it be difficult to move something across one surface, but not another? (friction)
- Is friction ever helpful, or useful to us?
Upcoming Field Trips
On February 24, our class is visiting Kensington Metropark. This is the environmental education trip that all first grade classes in the district attend. We will need chaperones for this field trip. The trip is from 9:30-2:30 and we spend most of the day outside. This field trip is typically only canceled if temperature or wind chill is below zero.
I was reminded by a parent...if you wish to attend a field trip, please make sure you have completed a background check. I can send the sheet home with your student, but it needs to be handed in to the office in person (so you can show your ID).
Future Field Trips...chaperones welcome.
