Happy firstday of school everyone! We had a great day in our class.
Ask your child about the positives they had about the day! We shared as a class at the end how our day went and what questions we still have about 1st grade.
Today we met our classmates, organized materials, practiced routines and learned about our schedule and procedures for daily activities.
We began with a math message on rote couting by ones and filled in missing numbers. We practiced writing numbers on white boards and how to show different numbers.
1st graders practiced writing their names many times again today and practiced handwriting the letter C.
We read 2 stories today about the first day of school "First Day Jitters" and "Chrysanthemum" we talked about how it feels when people make fun of us or say things that hurt our feelings. We also talked about what to do when we feel anxious or nervous about things from the first day jitters.
We had media and PE today. Your child checked out 1 book from the library. Please return this book by next Tuesday.
Your child will get their wednesday folders tomorrow filled with notes from school and homework assignments for the month.
Please call or email if you have questions

I will periodically update over the summer and I look forward to meeting you all again at open house!
