Open House

Thank you so much for attending Open House. It was great to see you and get to talk about your child's day to day activities. Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.

This week we continued to establish our rules and routines. We created our class mission statement and talked about working in groups.

We are continuing to make progress building our stamina for Daily 5. Our goal is 20 minutes and I think we will reach it next week! We will continue to learn more about Daily 5 next week including word work and working on writing.

Next week in math we will be focused on collecting data using graphs.

Home will come home on Monday and is to be returned on Friday. We will have a spelling test on Friday!

First Week of First Grade

We had a fantastic first week in first grade! The students were very busy making new friends, learning our rules and routines, playing math games, developing our community of learners, and making class books after listening to lots of fun stories.
We will continue to review the rules and routines next week as well as develop our class mission statement. We get to go explore the Learning Commons with our 3rd grade book buddies and met our new guidance counselor.
Open house will be on Thursday, August 10th, at 5:00. We ask that is at all possible, you leave your children at home. I will be discussing our curriculum, homework, behavior system, and answering any questions you may have. I look forward to seeing you then.

Keep signing those GATOR books and sending in all county forms. Have a great weekend!
