Happy September!
I hope you have been loving first grade so far!  I have really enjoyed getting
to know all of you and know this is going to be a great year.

We have been practicing our letters and sounds, and we have been working 
on forming our uppercase and lowercase letters correctly.  In ELA, we are learning about character, 
setting, problem, and solution.  Ask your child these things when reading for extra practice.  
In math, we are working on addition to ten.  We are composing numbers, using part-part-whole
mats, and ten frames.  Very exciting things!  In science, we are learning about being a 
scientist.  We will also be learning about Johnny Appleseed and doing some apple experiments.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at bcosta@pelhamsd.org :)
I look forward to a great year!
