Reading Logs- I am sending home our first reading the log of the year. You and your child will keep track of the books read at home and then turn in the signed reading log to me so I can give you a new reading log. As long as your child has completed a full reading log for the month, he or she will get a coupon for a free kids pizza at Pizza Hut. There is a surprise for every 100 books read!
Double Mint Challenge!! I am challenging my kids to learn their double addition facts like 1+1 and 2+2 all the way up to 12+12. I am giving them 2 weeks to practice at home and then on Friday the 30th we will be taking a timed test on the double facts. If they know them ,they get to put their name on the Double Mint poster and get a pack of Double Mint gum!! I am sending home some worksheets with doubles facts on them for you to help your child practice.
WEE Food Drive-Willard East is having a food drive on September 23rd. You can send in the items before the 23rd. First grade is responsible for bringing in Peanut Butter and Jelly. I am sending home the flyer today.
Math- I was extremely proud of the kids' scores on their tests! The first unit is math was pretty hard, but they did an amazing job of working hard and trying their best!
This next unit is learning addition math facts and ways to solve addition problems such as counting on and using a number line.
Science- This week we started an apple experiment. I peeled apples for each table, then we have been observing the changes in the apples. They are getting pretty disgusting. Next week we are going to be having a taste test of different apples and then we will be making applesauce!
