Week of September 3-7th

Greetings from First Grade,

                        What a FANTASTIC first week it has been! It is SO difficult to believe we have only been together for three days! The boys and girls are quickly becoming experts about how to follow our morning routine.

                        We  had the opportunity to have popsicles with our 4th grade buddies, as well as go to Mass with them and getting to know you activities. We will be getting to know all of the 4th graders this year, not just one buddy!

Here are some items you can ask your child about from our first few days together:

1.)    Morning Routine

2.   Expectations (our fancy name for our class rules)

3.   The stories we listened to: First Day Jitters, Chrysthanemum, Ella Sarah Gets Dressed, The Night Before First Grade, and There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books. What is the first grade rule for listening to stories?

4.  Morning Meeting

5.   20 Questions

Specials’ Schedule:

Monday: Art

Tuesday: Gym/i-Ready

Wednesday: Library/Computer

Thursday: Gym/i-Ready

Friday: Music/i-Ready

We will be having a mid-morning snack every day. I have asked the class to only drink water in the classroom, as it will help us keep our floors from getting sticky from spills. I am looking forward to meeting all of you at Meet the Teacher Night on Thursday, September 13th from 6:30-7:30pm. If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to email me!

            As always, thank you for everything you do for your child and our school community!

                                                                                    Yours truly,

                                                                                    Mrs. Blake J
