Happy Fall!

It has been an amazing year! I can’t believe it is already November. I want to say thank you to those students that completed their October reading log. Please remember to continue to fill in your reading log as often as possible. We would like for our students to read at least 12 books each month. If you are reading chapter books you may count each chapter as a book. Students will receive Pitner bucks to spend in the school store.

This week we will continue our study on Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. In writing students are working on informational stories. We are also identifying the main idea and key details in informational texts during Reader’s Workshop. In math we are practicing math and subtraction facts within 20. Please practice the strategies we have sent home so far (doubles and ten pair). Thank you so much for your support.

Welcome to First Grade!

Ms. Thayer and I are so excited to begin another amazing school year at Pitner Elementary. We are looking forward to teaching you lots of new information and helping you grow as readers and writers. We can’t wait to get to know each and every one of you. Let’s make this year the best year ever!
