Scholastic Book Orders
Our class is now signed up with Scholastic Reading Club. Each month your child will bring home a scholastic magazine filled with books meant specifically for 1st grade readers. Having books at home is extremely important to our youngest readers. Scholastic provides inexpensive books, easy online ordering, and quick delivery. Below is a link to our classroom ordering page as well as our specific class code. Please contact me with any questions. 

Class Code: QMGGC

Thank You
The 1st graders are so thrilled about their clean classroom and the brand-new flower and herb garden planted right outside our door! The students decided to write a letter of appreciation (placed in the office) to all the parents, students and staff that came to help during the school wide Clean Up Day. We are grateful for all of your hard work and will continue to take good care of our new plants!

Reading with Kindergarten
1st graders got a chance to share our passion for learning with Ms. Lopez's kindergarten class. 1st graders greeted the younger New LA students, listened to them read their powerful teaching books, and gave them compliments along the way. Students also got a chance to do some shared reading of quality texts to swap reading skills and build enthusiasm for reading. A great example of engagement in our community. Keep it up Kindergarten! We can't wait to visit again soon!
