I hope you had a great Easter weekend. Our class would like to thank everyone who brought in or sent in items for our party. Your contributions were greatly appreciated.
In reading we are working on cause and effect and making connections between parts of texts. In phonics and spelling we will be working on the /aw/, /au/, and /all/ vowel sounds. Bonus spelling words this week will be using /au/ and /aw/ sounds. Please study. These can be difficult.
In math we will continue working on measurement and collecting and organizing data such as graphs and surveys. Please do not forget you can access www.frontrowed.com and www.zearn.org from home to practice and strengthen math skills.
In science we are learning about plants and plant needs. In social studies we will learn about rules and laws and the necessity for both.
Shout out to our 60 point AR earners!!! Jacob and Alexis. Congratulations!!! You are doing a great job reading each day! Several other students are very close to this reading achievement as well and are doing a wonderful job!!
Lastly, first grade will be taking a fieldtrip to Abraham Lincoln's birthplace on Thursday, May 11 and we have reserved Friday, May 12 as a rain date. We will leave school at around 8:15 and return around 1:30. Parents are welcome to go with us, but parents must take their own transportation and students must ride the bus both there and back.
As always, your help and support from home is so appreciated and is more important than ever from this point of the year on.
Thank you so much!
