First Grade News

December 7, 2018

Dear Parents,

Today was a fun day in first grade!  Thank you for all of your candy donations and making icing!  The kids were so excited and had a great time decorating their Gingerbread Houses.  Thank you for helping to make this day possible.   Be sure to check for photos in our Homeroom App!

Thank you to those who sent in items for Welcome Warehouse. Deer Run will be making the holidays very special for those families.

We are excited about partnering with The Ronald McDonald House. We had a kick off assembly this past week to explain its importance to the students. Former Deer Run student and DJHS graduate, Mark Burkholder, spoke to the students about how RMH helped his family when he had a skateboarding accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury.

Permission slips for the talent show are due Monday December 10. Auditions are December 13 and 14. The Talent Show will be December 21 at 1:10.

Next Week...
Reading & Writing Workshop
We will continue with opinion writing and comparing gingerbread stories by looking at story elements. In word study, we will review short i patterns. Please be sure your child is completing their nightly reading.  Multiple reading of a familiar text will help build fluency.  Reading with or to your child is a great way for them to have fluency modeled for them and a great way to have conversations about the story to help build comprehension. 

Math Workshop
We will finish our work with comparing numbers using base ten models and place value.  We will be learning how to add 2 digit numbers to one digit numbers (no carrying) and adding tens to two digit numbers.

Social Studies Workshop
 In social studies, we will be learning about Holidays Around the World visiting Germany, Sweden, Mexico, England and Italy.

Week of December 10-14:
Tuesday-Gym (wear tennis shoes)
Wednesday-Library (return books)

Have a great weekend!
