Summer Reading and Math Fun

Are you looking for ideas to keep the learning going over the summer? Here are a few things you can do for review and practice:

For Math:

Greg Tang Math and Edu place are great sites for various games and levels or all of our children.

For Reading:

Raz Kids – I will be attaching another copy of your child’s login for the site so that you can use it on the go too!

Also, here are a few recommendations that your child may be interested in:


Walk to East Cobb Park


   Happy Sunday! I hope you all have had a great weekend! As of now we are still planning to walk to the park. It seems as though the rain will hold off until we return (fingers crossed). 
Please make sure your child is wearing their class shirt and sneakers. Before they leave please also apply sunscreen as we will be outside for close to 2 hours. 
You may also want to pack an extra change of clothes in case it does rain on us. We are not anticipating this but the mom in me would like to be prepared 🙂
*If the weather takes a turn between now and the morning, we will let you know if we are not planning on going. Either way we would like the children to wear their class shirt as we will have an alternative plan for them at school. 🙂

Plant Eating Party on Monday!!!

As we conclude our lessons about plants, their parts, and what the need to live we will be having a plant eating party! In your child’s folder there was a flyer to explain what we need from everyone. But just in case you didn’t get one, here it is:

Police officer Career visit

Today we had a visit from A Marietta Police officer, Mr. King, who is also first grade teacher, Mrs.King’s husband. He came to explain a little bit about what he does as a police officer and a SWAT team member. He even brought the truck for our students to sit in and learn more about how to keep us safe.

Ruby Bridges

On Wednesday we had a visitor come present the story of Ruby Bridges. Ruby is an American hero that when she was only 6 years old and in first grade, changed history for everyone. Ruby was one of the first African American children to integrate an all white school in New Orleans. Her perseverance and courage showed our children that no matter how old you are, you can always make a difference!
