It was so nice to see so many smiling faces with parents and students at Powers Ferry’s annual Thanksgiving lunch.  Thank you to all parents and grandparents who attended.  A special thank you to our cafeteria staff for serving such a wonderful, tasty feast! 

Don’t forget: On Friday, November 17th, all our First Grade classes will have their annual “Friendsgiving Feast.”  Please consider sending in a small snack to share with our class.  

Next week there is NO SCHOOL for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

October is a super, fun month in 1st grade!  I am so happy to share this time with your child.  Here are some of the things we will be focusing on this month:

Math: Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.   Reading: We are reading fictional books, identifying main idea and details and asking questions about a text. Writing: We are writing narratives with 3 or more events with key details and transitions.  Social Studies: We can describe and identify 4 different types of land forms – Mountains, Valleys, Deserts, & Coasts.  

Continue to practice your sight words on the sight word lists I am sending home. I will
assess them individually.
 They should know 75
sight words by the end
of this quarter.   

Homework notebooks are due every Friday.  

Please keep sending in Box Tops!  

Conference Week is coming!  Notes will be coming home this week with your student’s conference day and time.  Please sign and return the paper ASAP!

Fall is almost here!  September brings a lot fun and exciting things to first grade!  

Very Important!  September 6th -8thCogAT testing for first grade begins Wednesday morning. Please help your child do their best by ensuring an early bedtime and providing a healthy breakfast. In addition, please make sure your child arrives at school on time. Testing begins promptly at 8:00 AM.  Thank you!

Take Home Reading bags will begin this week!  Be sure your child is reading 10-20 minutes every night.  It is okay to re-read their books several times.  There will be a list of questions inside the bag for you to discuss with your student.  You do not need to do every question on every book.  These are suggestions to get your student thinking and talking about what they read.  

Progress Reports go home Wednesday, September 6th.  Any area with an “X” indicated your child is not making progress with that standard.  A “check mark” indicates your student is making progress with that standard.  

Picture Day is coming September 18th.  All students will have their picture taken this day regardless if any pictures are purchased.  

Please continue to send in Box Tops!  There is a contest between the classes and the class that has the most Box Tops wins a party! Box Tops can be found on many packages that would otherwise go in the trash or recycling.  Each are worth 10 cents  for our school.  They can really add up!  Please cut them off and send them in to school.  We have a container in our classroom where we keep them.  My class is the reigning champ of Box Tops! Please help us keep our streak going!  

Please keep practicing sight words with your student.  Students should know 75 sight words by the end of the first quarter.  You received the complete list of 200 words at the beginning of the school year. Additional word lists have been going home with students who are in need of additional practice.  The link below is the complete list of the 200 words your student should know by the end of fist grade.
