Friday Update

to:All Students

The kids had a great day today. We were all on GREEN!!! We were all busy taking tests and finishing out the week. 

Next Week:

Monday- Clifford's Birthday Bash! We will be doing centers again. We thought we'd all wear red in honor of Clifford's Birthday, but nothing was officially said, so if you wear red great, if not don't worry. We will have other more official dress days.

Tuesday- Homework will go out TODAY! First Grade will also get Math for Homework. Spelling and Math are now what homework includes.

Friday- Homework is due.  

**If you have any questions about anything, PLEASE COME TALK TO ME.

ARRRR! Today went gRRReat!

to:All Students

NO BEHAVIOR CARDS TODAY!

 

Pirate Day was gRRReat! We learned new pirate phrases, counted our booty by 2s, read short a words, matched our alphabet, filled in missing numbers, and even learned some new PIRATE VOCABULARY.

I was so impressed with the students playing the PIRATE VOCABULARY GAME. They had to use context clues to figure out the meaning of what I thought were hard words.

Who knows what avast means?

Avast! I see a ship coming our way.

a) “Help!”
b) “Stop and look!”
c) “What’s up?”
d) “Come here!”

Email back for the answer to see if you are corrrrrect!

TOMORROW YOUR CHILD/REN CAN BRING ANYTHING CLIFFORD RELATED. WE WILL CELEBRATE HIS BIRTHDAY WITH SOME FUN GAMES ON MONDAY!

PARENTS I NEED VOLUNTEERS, NOT SURE WHAT TIME, BUT LET ME KNOW WHO CAN COME.

Pirate Day!

to:All Students

Good Afternoon,

ARRRGH you ready for National Pirate Day!

Pirate Day is tomorrow! We will be wearing RED, WHITE, AND BLACK. If your child/ren has/have anything pirate related (eye patches, stuffed animal, book etc...) they can bring it tomorrow. NO SWORDS!

We will be trying centers/rotations for the first time tomorrow. Wish us luck! I have a few parents coming in, so hopefully they run smooth (or as smooth as it can go the first time around).

*I have attached a Pirate Iron On Graphic (other materials not included-t shirt etc...) if any parents are inspired to use it. :-)
