Hello first and second grade families!
We had another great week of learning and fun! We are settling down into our routines and getting to know our systems. We have begun talking about what makes a "best fit book" for adding to book boxes. We have done read alouds (Elmer, by David McKee and Jamaica and Brianna, by Juanita Havill). We discussed and wrote about the lessons in these stories. We have been working on neat, lowercase letters in handwriting. We gathered apples from the playground and learned how to press cider. We ended our week enjoying the sweet cider together in the sunshine!
Be on the look out for a permission slip for our All School Outing in Hubbard Park! It went home in folders and back packs this afternoon.
September 25 - Open House (5:30-6:30)
September 27 - All School Outing
I hope you all enjoy the weekend!
Hello 1st and 2nd grade families! I hope the first two weeks have treated you all well, though I imagine many may have felt tired as we are adjusting to the school schedule. It will become easier as we increase our stamina in the weeks to come. We have been busy getting to know each other and learning all about how to take care of our classroom space.
This week we started "shopping" for books to fill our new book boxes and have been really enjoying time to read to ourselves. We watched one of our monarch butterflies hatch live and projected onto our Smart Board. We released it out in the rock garden that afternoon! It was very exciting!
Next week we will be beginning work in our handwriting books and start writing Small Moment writing pieces. We will be having group discussions about class norms and expectations as we continue to come together as a class team.
