Monday Day A Applied Engineering and BOOK EXCHANGE Today we will review for our math test on using strategies to add. We will practice counting on, doubles, near doubles, and using a number line. We will also begin practicing words with -ch. We will not be having another spelling test until after the holiday. We will read The Grinch today and make a Grinch adjective project. We will also make an invitation for parents to join us in our holiday reader’s theater.
Tuesday Day B ART Our math test in chapter 3 will be today. We will read about reindeer during our stations. We do not have books coming home this week. Instead please read a book of your choice with your first grader and practice his or her line(s) for the play. Students will have scripts with them during the show so they do not need to memorize lines, but they do need to be familiar with them. If you are able to send in small candies or GREEN ICING (hint, hint) please do so for our holiday activity on Thursday.
Wednesday Day C Phys Ed Please wear sneakers. First grade teachers are in meetings all day today so we will all have substitutes.
Thursday Day D MUSIC Today we will have our show! If you are coming to the show, please be at Hambright by 10:30. The performance is about 10 -15 minutes long with refreshments afterward. The show is in our classroom, so although we are excited to perform for you, it is for family only due to the small amount of room we have. This afternoon first grades are making gingerbread trees. They will be bringing them home in an enclosed container.
Friday Day A – EARLY DISMISSAL Today will be our annual holiday assembly ! Have a wonderful and relaxing winter break with your friends and family. Thank you for the opportunity to be your child’s teacher. Each one is special to me and please know how much I care for them. School is back in session January 2. See you then!
