Week of Dec 19-23

Congratulations to all first graders who did a wonderful job at the Peppermint Parade on Wednesday.  It’s not easy speaking in front of such a large crowd, but the kids did a great job!  Thank you for your help at home to make this event successful.

The month of December has been very busy with reading assessments- which is why many kids have not come home with books.  We’ll be ready to begin reading groups again as soon as we come back from vacation!  I’m very excited to start this again with the kids!

We finished up Topic 4 in math.  It was a tough topic!  We’ll be ready to begin Topic 5- working with addition and subtraction equations- once we return in January.

The kids loved having Mrs. Scheffer show them a new app about coding called, The Hour of Code.  This is a challenging activity that uses problem solving skills and visual/spacial thinking. Thank you Mrs. Scheffer!

Happy holidays to all!  Enjoy your winter vacation.  I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2017!
