It has been an amazing start to the year. The class has done a great job of adjusting to the rigor of first grade and I enjoy every minute I get to spend with them. We have a new math program this year and so far so good. The kids really love working in the workbook and they are making connections with all of the hands-on activities. Their number sense is becoming stronger and they're really starting to work through addition and subtration word problems. I know you've seen the reading books come home each week. Let your scholar SHINE by listening to the fantastic reading! I have seen so much growth in both reading and writing already this year. I am so proud of the effort and desire to do well.
Don't forget to look through your child's folder each night and sign in the space provided on the calendar. Scholars need to wear sneakers for PE on Mondays and Thursdays.
I look forward to seeing continued growth as the year progresses.
