Newsletter Week 20!
Ms. Ward's First Grade
Holiday Party = A HUGE Success!
I am also SO pleased and proud to announce that I have the most thoughtful, considerate class in the world!! I cannot get over their reactions to the gifts they received from each other. They were surprised and delighted to know that someone got them a gift, and they hugged each other in gratitude. It was fantastic.
Homework for January 20-25 is:
Monday: Spelling Worksheet, Tens and Ones Riddles
Tuesday: Describe It!, Frames and Arrows Diagrams
Wednesday: Adjective Time
Thursday: Everyday Adjectives, Relation Symbols
Please continue to allow your child to read each night (even over break!!) either with books they pick out at home, or on RAZ kids! Also, as you set off on your family adventures, have your child write about what they see, do and learn! If you need help motivating them, let them know that Ms. Ward is really looking forward to reading their stories when we return to school! : )
In January, we will begin our Swimming Unit in PE. On PE Days (Tuesday, Thursday) please make sure that your child has:
1. Regular PE uniform(in case of inclement weather or closure of the pool)
2. Girls (full one piece swimsuit); Boys (swimming trunks/shorts); for both boys and girls optional a rash guard shirt - UV shirt
3. A swim cap (for boys and girls!) and goggles
4. A towel5. A plastic bag to hold wet items following their swim
I have really enjoyed getting to know all of the kids this year, watching them grow and mature, and see how far they have come since August! I hope you all enjoy your Holiday Break, and we'll see everyone back, well rested and ready to learn on Monday, January 20th! Happiest of Holidays to each and every one!!
Ms. Ward : )
