First Grade Math, Science, Social Studies

What's Happening in Week 14! {November 10th-14th}

I absolutely love this time of year! The next two weeks will be all things Thanksgiving! We will be studying Turkeys, Pilgrims and Indians, the Mayflower and Plymouth Rock! Of course we will have some Turkey Math and Mayflower Math center activities. (NO tests this week!)

So very THANKFUL!

I want to give a BIG thanks to the parents who donated class supplies from our wish list! We are stocked with lysol, clorox wipes, dry erase markers, and construction paper! I am so thankful for your support! THANK you, THANK you! xoxo

Can Food Drive!

Bring in the largest, heaviest cans!

10 cans = free scoop of ice cream!

20 cans = free scoop of ice cream + free dress pass!

21 + cans = free scoop of ice cream + free dress pass, + golden tickets from Mrs. Lyons!

Students in my homeroom should give the cans directly to me so that I can keep a tally of the number of cans donated. Every tally mark puts students closer to rewards and our class closer to winning the class party!
