Happy New Year 2017!
The holidays are over and January is here. It’s time to get back to school and focus on learning once again. Our sharing project for January will help us make some goals for the new year. Our school goals are to get these first graders reading, reading, reading!
It’s December in First Grade…so where’s the snow? When it does decide to turn into winter, please remember how toasty your children will feel playing outside in the proper gear. Boots, gloves, and hats can make for happy outside play. It will be important to remember to send in shoes to change into as well, so those wet boots can dry in the hallway during the day.
It is so exciting to see all of the new readers in first grade grow in their love of reading! This class is excited to read every day, which makes my job a little easier. Remember to read at home as well, and record those minutes on the pink slips in the homework folder.
