A Peek at Our Week

Hello Families!

As we bring our year in First Grade to a close we are choosing to celebrate all of the learning, exploring, wondering and joy that has filled our days together! Take a peek at some of the end of the year activities that are going on. It has been an incredible year in our class!

Field Day- June 8th Dress to PLAY! (don't forget sneakers, water & sunblock!)

Save the Date: End of the Year Class Celebration- June 15th (more info to follow)

A few pics to share...

Fundations and Word Study

Our class is thinking more and more about using fluency in reading- Including focus on punctuation and expression. Our Fundations lessons are reinforcing all long vowels as well as base word, suffix and contractions.

What are we Reading?

This week we finished up Jasper John Dooley. The kids related to Jasper and had fun exploring a new series book. Our last class read aloud is sure to be a "heart print" book! We are going to miss this special time every day!

Happy Reading!
