Ms. Ward's Fabulous First Grade : )
Newsletter Week 24
Happy Valentine's Day!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ENRIQUE!!!
We also worked on function machines, which are a fun way for students to find patterns within numbers. I am amazed and impressed with how quickly everyone caught onto the patterns! Even when I tried to make them tricky, I couldn't fool 1.3!
Mark your calendars for a special Author's Share on Friday, February 28th. Parents are welcome to come celebrate as our authors read their finished fairy tales.
Next week we will begin to see how people are affected by landforms... People who live in the mountains have a very different life style than those living on an island or in the plains!
First-grade is having a ball!
Friday February 28th we are celebrating the end of our unit, Around the World in a Glass Slipper, with a ball worthy of a fairy-tale! Parents of first-graders are invited to dance and eat in the elementary cafeteria from 1:30 until 2:30.
We are looking for volunteers to bring food and decorate the cafeteria. Please email me if you are able to help.
