We are learning so much in first grade! Please be reading the decodable readers with your student 3 times each day Monday-Thursday. Please be having them read for 15 minutes each night and marking their reading log. Please have your student turn in the September reading log. An October one will be sent home this week. It will have ghosts on it. If you loose it, you can print a new one under the homework tab.
In science in the coming weeks, we will be learning about sound. We will be making guitars. Please have your student bring a cereal box, so we can do this fun project. If you have any questions, please email us. Thanks for your support.
We will also be doing pumpkin activities the week of October 23-27th. If you could, please have your child bring a small pumpkin (small enough to fit in their backpack) to school before then. Thanks!
Mrs. Francis, Mrs. Cortez, and Mrs. Strachan

Our school will be doing the book parade like as in years past. Please have your child pick out a book that matches their costume. They will need the book to hold with them when they march in the parade.
