1st Grade MAY News!
Am I really saying that we are beginning our last month of the school year??? But, yes, we are and it promises to be a blur—but a wonderful blur.
We are reviewing concepts in Phonics/Language to hone our skills. Just a few Spelling Lessons remain. In Math, our last two chapters involve graphing, directions, and review of the year’s concepts. In Bible, we are enjoying the stories of David, to be followed by the Bible prophet Elijah.
On the extra side, we are looking forward to our Math field trip to Chick Fil-A. To that end, be practicing counting money amounts with your child…especially with a view to using the least amount of coins. That is not a concept required within their Math curriculum, so other ways to attain the money amount are acceptable; however, we are also working on the aspect of using the least coins.
Perhaps our grandest and most fun activity of the whole year is our Author’s Tea. This is the culmination of our whole year’s worth of Creative Writing. This week I am asking for the return of those folders that you have been saving all year. In the next few weeks we will be preparing those stories into our books. Soon, you (our fans) will be receiving an invitation to ‘tea’ . We will host you and serve you good stuff, then invite you back to our room for our story presentations. We promise a good time…you will not want to miss it. So, hold May 24 (9:30-11:00) on your calendars for this special First Grade event.
May birthdays: Sam (May 20th); Mrs.Spade (31st)
