In Writing Workshop, we began our new unit, persuasive writing. We learned what an opinion is. Also, we created a list of places we like and dislike.

In Math, we learned subtraction. We played roll and record and five in a row. We learned how to use different strategies to subtract while playing these games.

Snack and Birthdays
To help keep germs away, I would like to have snack individualized for the students.  For example, if you purchase a big box of goldfish the goldfish must be placed into 20 zip lock bags for each student to have.

First Grade will longer celebrate birthdays with "cake."  If you would like to celebrate your child's birthday, please donate a book to our library.  A family member may also want to read a story to the class in honor of the student's birthday.  Please email your teacher to set up a date.



First grade is accepting any child friendly magazines!  Please bring any magazines you are willing to donate in with your child.
Thank you!
