                                                         First Grade Newsletter

                                                             12/17/18 - 12/21/18

 

I can not believe that we are so close to the end of 2018!! We are almost halfway through first grade. Even your children say that time is flying! The end of the second nine weeks is January 15th.

 

Reminders

  • Monday (today), the 17th is the Winter Musical. The children from 3rd - 5th grade will be singing at 6:45. Please come and support their hard work.

  • Our last day will be Friday, Dec. 21st. K and 1st will be watching the Polar Express in the afternoon. If you would like to send in something salty that would be great.

  • ***No school after the 21st, until January 3rd.

 

Over the break, please have your child read and write whenever possible. They can make grocery lists, letters, stories about their day, etc. You can also have them work on addition and subtraction. Helping them write and/or figure out word problems would be great.

Example: I built 6 snowmen and two melted. How many snowmen do I have now?  When given the opportunity discuss equations as, part + part = the whole.

 

Thank you,

Mrs. Bumgarner
