Coming Home Today!

Our First Library Book

We went to our school library for the first time today and the kids were so excited to find out that they could take these books home!! Please return by Thursday of every week!

Vowel Packet: Letter /i/

Again, our packet has several pages that we did not get to this week so I am sending it home. This is a great opportunity for you to see what we do in class AND to give your student extra practice!

Math Packet

We are finishing up TOPIC 2 next week. We will have a review on Wednesday and take the test on Thursday. This packet gives the kids lots of opportunity to practice these (+) (-) strategies. My job is to share these strategies. The kids’ job is to try them out and pick the ones that work best for them! Ask them to tell you which ones are my favorites!!

High Frequency Word List (HFW)

This is a list of all of the HFW we work on until Fall Break. We have introduced all up through “very”. Read/Write/Find these words in print to practice!

*To My Parents of Above Grade Level Learners:

These pages may not seem challenging enough for your kids! Rest assured, in class, we do a lot of enrichment activities and extensions! For example, the book at the end of the /i/ packet has very few words for beginning first grade level readers. One extension idea would be to add more detail to the sentences, like descriptive words or an addition at the end of the sentence.

For math, our discussions are deep and the activities and games that we play can be more challenging!

Our Very First Improv Play!

Today, some of our Busy Bees led an improv play called, “Just Look at Me Now!” The rest of our Busy Bees were the audience. After watching this, we are excited to do more plays throughout the year! You can watch the play on our Google Classroom (Link Below), scroll down to Social Studies.

Art Masterpiece

We will do our next Art Masterpiece project at 9:15 on Friday, September 10th. Jenn Jacobs will lead and she is looking for someone to help. We will do this once or twice a month at this time. It is a lot of fun and the kids love it!

Football Game Tonight!

The kids asked me to give you ALL THE INFORMATION!! They are so funny! AND I got several students apologizing that they already had plans! So, as requested:


It will be a “Black Out” so wear a black shirt! They will also sell food made by the culinary class. The kids get a discount on the entrance fee when you bring their student ID from picture day. If you decide to come, please say “Hi!” to me!!

Grandparents’ Day Lunch Fri 9/10 @ 11:00

Grandparents are welcome to join their grandchildren at lunch from 11-11:30 this Friday to celebrate Grandparents Day! I love that we have an opportunity to honor this relationship! In my own family, my children adore their grandparents and I have already heard stories from your kids about fun things they do with theirs. Such a gift!!
