And just like that we're entering our third week of school!
I hope your child is having as much fun in first grade as I am! They are doing a great job of learning our rules and procedures. It is a huge jump from kindergarten to first grade.
The past two weeks we have been working hard at reviewing each sound. Our class has been doing the alphabet dance. If they have not already shared that with you, ask them to show you. They really get a kick out of it in class.
As you will see in the newsletter that is being sent home, this week we will begin practicing the short a and short o spellings in words. We are diving into 3D shapes for math, and beginning a unit on germs in science.
Also, we are starting Book Boxes this week! This is an exciting step toward building reading independence. Please feel free to send in 1-3 of your child's favorite books for them to read during independent reading. I will try to send them home at the beginning of each month so you can switch them out.
I hope to see you all tomorrow at Open House. Have a GREAT week!
