Week of April 24-28, 2017  

What's happening this week in our classroom and the Forest

Thursday is the First Grade Music Program. It is at 1:00 and parents are invited to attend.

Campbells is ending their Labels for Education at the end of this school year. With that being said this Friday, April 28th will be the last day of collection. The PTO will be mailing them out in the beginning of May so they can cash out our school points.

*Reading: In reading we will review how to ask questions about what we are reading 

*Math: We will take our Chapter 11 test Monday. Tuesday we will start Chapter 12 Two-dimensional shapes 

*Math Homework: Chapter 11.5 and Chapter 12.1 to 12.3

*Reading: Homework will be the same as usual, Monday - Thursday. 

*Reading Homework: There is a calendar for the reading homework in your child's binder. Have your child write his/her name and number at the top of the page. Help him/he set a goal as to how many minutes he/she would like to read for the week. For each day that your child reads, write the number of minutes  for that date. On Thursday, fill in the bottom telling how may minutes he/she read that week then initial it. Student will also complete a written comprehension page about the story he/she reads each day. 

Reminder! Their name, number and date go at the top of each page.

*Spelling Homework: Monday-Thursday

Reminder! They should be choosing a different activity each night for their spelling homework.


*Spelling tests, words will  be marked wrong if there are upper case letters where it should be lower case. Also, words that should begin with uppercase will be marked wrong if it is not spelled with an uppercase. Students know this, we go over this daily! If your child is struggling with this, please work with them at home. Also, if your child spells a word correctly on the pretest and then spells it wrong on the test I will mark it wrong. They should be able to spelling the words correctly every time they write it.

*Be sure you are signing your child’s behavior chart each night. Thank you!

*If your child is absent for any reason, please remember to send a note the day your child returns to school. If the school does not receive a note his/her absence will be marked as unexecuted.




Military Support Groups  

1st Grade Family,

Military support groups will begin in September and continue on through May.  They will focus on kids whose parents are deployed, will deploy, or are post deployed. Students can also participate if they are military affiliated and having trouble adjusting or new to the area.


Please let me know if you are interested in our child participating in these activities. Students who participated in the past have benefited from the experience.
