First Grade News

 Welcome to 1st Grade, Room 113

 Welcome to first
grade. I look forward to working with your child this year. Feel free to email me if you have any questions and concerns about first grade.

Our special classes will be:
    Monday- gym
    Tuesday- art, computers
    Wednesday- music
    Thursday- library
    Friday- gym

We will be redoing the Sign of the Cross test this week. Many of the children did not pass. They either were using the wrong hand, going the wrong direction with their hands, or were just not doing it the correct way at all. We do practice several times a day. Please be sure they are practicing at home too. Thank you.

We will have our first math test this Wednesday. It will be from chapter 1, recognizing and writing numbers up to 20 as well as ordinal numbers, and putting numbers in order.

Reading and spelling test will be every Friday or Thursday if we are off of school on Fridays.

Open gym will begin on Monday, Sept. 17th 

 School pictures will be this Wednesday, September 19th. Dress in your finest. 

Friday is a spirit day. You may wear any SCA clothing you have. The pep rally will be in the gym at 1:30.

RAZ-Kids will be up and running very soon. I will send home the directions on how to get on the site and your child's password. RAZ-kids is a wonderful reading site for your child. Besides reading fluency it also works on reading comprehension.
