The most important activity for your child to do over the summer! Enjoy some time with a great book! There are lots of resources through Clever for online books!
From Mrs. Crosby:
The 2020 Summer Reading Adventure begins June 1st! We encourage all students and families to read 20 minutes each day for a total of 20 hours this summer. Students and families will sign up for the Summer Reading Adventure through the Cobb County Public Library at http://www.cobbcat.org/summer/.
A few of you have asked about how to help your child with double digit addition at home. I have attached a video for you to watch (you are MORE than welcome to watch it with your child) to practice adding bigger numbers (up to 100).
Today during our number talks, we decided to take a peek back at the beginning of the year number talks. WOW!! We have certainly come a long way!! Check out the pictures. I am so proud of my boys and girls for being mathematical rock stars.
We are excited to announce our first annual Breakfast with Buddies! Bring your coffee and enjoy a casual morning eating donuts with your child. This event will take place the morning of Friday, March 20th from 7:20-7:50 in your student’s classroom. Maximum of 2 grownups per student.
This Friday is our Read Across America celebration. We will have a super fun book character parade. Please allow your child to dress up as their favorite book character. Below are some examples from past students:
As always, please let me know if you have any questions!
We’re wild about specials! All Kindergarten and 1st Grade students are invited to perform on March 5th at 7:00 PM for Specials Night. Your child will be learning songs in Music class and in Spanish class to share with you. If your child is interested in taking part in the performance, please click the link below and fill out the survey. All rehearsals take place during Music and Spanish class, so your child won’t have any after school or morning rehearsals. Simply sign up, and show up to perform on March 5th!
The deadline to sign up is February 28th. A confirmation email will be sent out with more details about the night after the deadline. Students who perform will wear a solid green shirt with khakis.
We have been very excited to work on our narrative writing. As a class, we have noticed that sometimes we leave details out of our writing. In an effort to make our writing stronger, I am asking you to talk with your child about experiences you have had as a family. For example, doing on a trip to Six Flags, having a birthday party, getting a family pet, or eating at a fun restaurant…anything really! The more you talk about the details of this experience, the stronger your child’s writing will become. Encourage your child to write about these experiences and share them! I am confident we will have the best writers in first grade!!
