We are looking forward to seeing all of you at Curriculum Night on Wednesday August 30 at 6:00 in the gym. First grade will meet all together for a while then disperse into our classrooms. We will sign up for reading volunteers and fall conferences. This is an adult only evening so please make arrangements for your children.
We take the MAP math test Tuesday morning. Please make sure your child gets a good night's sleep, eats a good breakfast and is at school on time Tuesday. We will each need our headphones for this assessment so if you have not yet sent in a pair please do so.
Next week we will continue with individual reading assessments. We will be on week two of our word study unit with the same words from last week (went, had, like, and, can, play, class, lead.) In math, will be working on rich problems and sharing our strategies. In social studies, we will introduce the Six Practices of Thinkers (ask questions, collaborate, create, persevere, think flexibly & present ideas.
