It was a great Open House last Thursday and I wanted to thank all of you who could make it. Please no guilt if you couldn't as I didn't go to my 1st graders either :) hehe If you were not able to attend I did send home all paper work Friday. Please send all paper work back as soon as possible so we may start BYOD :)
This week we are focusing on place value and value in math along with writing numbers in different ways. We are also going to be working on graphing our Olympic outcomes which will try in math and science together. During our reading time together we are pulling in Ancient Greece even more by using these passages to learn different reading strategies. Ask your student about the strategies we have learned so far. In language arts we are working on brainstorming for our writing and nouns in grammar. We also will be introducing our daily 5 and CAFE rotations. Lastly we are working on what science is and how it is all around us.
Homework this week still continues to be our writing paragraphs that are due Thursday and our book bag activities due Friday. Don't forget you also have homework to sign the agenda and send back all paper work.
Picture day is this Wednesday and we also have an in house field trip Friday. A fun filled week is ahead :) Please let me know if you have any other questions.
