A Note From Your First Grade Teachers
First Grade Connections
March 30th, 2017
Dear First Grade Families,

Time flies! Who can believe we are in the third trimester of first grade. It seems like yesterday we were meeting your children for the first time. This last trimester of school is a very exciting time. We are really emphasizing that the students are almost in second grade and that we are expecting 'almost' second grade work and behavior. They seem up for the challenge. We are really excited about all of the great field trips we have planned.

Thank you to everyone who came with us to the HEAL Project's School Farm and to those that have already signed on to drive/chaperone in the future. If you are looking for volunteer opportunities please use the track it forward site to sign up. Lastly, we will be planting starters for our first grade farmers' market. If you are interested in helping us to maintain the garden please let us know.

Have a great spring break!

What We Have Been Learning
Ask Your Child About

Talking with your child is the best way to support classroom learning. The following questions and activities can help you get started.

  • Using small objects like Cheerios or buttons, have your first grader count, add and subtract numbers to 20. Make sure they are putting them in groups of 10's and adding on.
  • Read a book and make 'text to self' connections
  • Let's brainstorm some words that are in the -at family, -it family, -ot family (words that rhyme with cat, pit and pot)
  • What are you an expert on? What can you write an 'All About Book' about?
  • What makes a person body smart? self smart?
Thanks to our Mystery Readers
