Hello Parents & Cowpokes!! We have finished our first two weeks of 1st Grade, and they have been wonderful! I have enjoyed getting to know your child and his/her own personality greatly. In the past two weeks we have established expectations, set the foundations for Reader's and Writer's Workshop, created puzzle pieces full of story ideas, worked on problem-solving and comparing/ordering numbers, discovered science tools, and realized that we are all scientists! Here are a few pictures from the past two weeks...
Also, Happy Birthday to this week's September birthdays (all on September 8):Delaney, Austin, & Bryanna (not pictured...picture coming soon!)
Notices & Reminders:
--Homework begins today. Be looking for your child's homework spiral to come home today.
--"Raw" guided reading books will come home this week. This means that there will not be a formal lesson, but rather a quick overview of the book. These will be based on their end-of-the-year kindergarten level. I will begin literacy assessments this week and hope to meet with on-level guided reading groups in two - three weeks.
--Tonight is Moo Yah Burgers spirit night.
I think that's all for now! Have a great week!
