All first graders have a book in the “return to school” side of their folder. Please have your first grader read the book 3 times tonight. Books will be coming home a minimum of two times a week with this expectation. Also remember to practice spelling words for Friday’s test. We are still in need of donations for our apple feast on Friday. Please reply to the post if you would like to bring something. Thank you!
This is apple week in first grade! We are going to learn about the stages of an apple, seasons of the apple tree, the legend of Johnny Appleseed, and we will be having an apple feast on Friday ! Please send an apple or two to school with your child this week. We are looking for apples in a variety of colors ( red, green, and yellow) to use during a math project. Please send apples in by WEDNESDAY.
We will have our math test on Chapter One (addition to 10) on Tuesday 9/26. A review paper will be send home on Monday for homework.
This week in Language Arts we are studying words ending in -ck. Below is a list of our spelling words for Friday’s test (9/29). A paper copy will also be coming home with your child on Monday.

Bonus Word: Thursday
Our Apple Feast will be this Friday, 9/29. If you would like to donate an apple food or drink such as juice, cider, apple pie, cake, apple butter, etc we would greatly appreciate it. Our class is making applesauce on Friday. We have a class of 20 kiddos, and we do not have any peanut allergies. If you are interested in donating, please comment what you would like to send in so that other parents can see what has been listed already and we do not have duplicates. Thank you for your support! This week is going to be a lot of fun!
Reading at Home! Please remember to send in your child’s football calendar so he or she can receive a free ticket to the PM football game. Starting Oct 1 I will be sending a calendar home with your child. I ask that every night your child spends some time reading and you sign the date on the calendar. Very often, we will be sending home books in our blue folder from our reading group. Please read these books and then return to school the following day.
We are already coming to the end of our first chapter in My Math. I anticipate our math test to be Tuesday, September 26. This test will be read to your child, and will include addition with pictures and some basic math facts. Scores will be available on Sapphire later next week.
If your child has a red karate belt at home from back to school night, please send it in tomorrow. If they do not have one, I have plenty of extras! Thank you!!
Tomorrow, Wednesday, will be a day B. We will be returning our library books and getting new ones! Remember to remind your first grader to put his or her library book in their backpack!
