Field Trip Information

Today your child is bringing home an information packet about our upcoming field trip to the Keller Natatorium. Every 1st grader in Keller ISD has the opportunity to participate in this day focused on swimming safety. The dates are below...

Tuesday, February 10th--Cook, Norwood, and Sanderson's classes

Tuesday, February 17th--Dossey, King, Stanford, and Wright's classes

Please look in your child's take home folder to find the informational packet about our field trip. The second to last page of the packet has two forms that you will need to complete all parts--front and back. The front side is the permission slip to participate in the Waterproof Kids Water Safety program, the back side is a permission form to ride on a Keller ISD school bus. Please fill out both sides completely and return to your child's teacher.

More information about our field trip will be sent home as the date approaches.


Reading--author study, Jan Brett

Writing--Aligning with our social studies curriculum, students will be writing about their dreams for their future.

Math--Students will measure and compare lengths using non-standards units. Students will be measuring the same object using different measuring tools, and trying to select the best measuring tool to use.

MATH AT HOME.... Ask your child to measure the length of your kitchen table using paper clips and then measure the length of your kitchen table using straws. Did it take more paper clips or straws? Why?

Social Studies--Students will identify the contributions Martin Luther King Jr. made to influence our nation.
