advent week 1

December 3, 2018

Dear Parents and Students,

Happy Monday! Happy December!  I
1st Grade will continue practicing for their Christmas Pageant this week! A letter went home last week explaining what part your child has, as well as what costume he/she may need! If you child has a speaking part, that will be going home with them as well.  Please practice those lines with your child every night! 

The children are doing an amazing job copying their homework into their agendas!  It is VERY important that their agenda comes to school with them every day (except Mondays!- I will be collecting them on Fridays to make sure that they have them for Monday!)

**Some Information for You!**

-Your child will need one (1) HEALTHY morning snack every day! Some examples are yogurt, fruit, granola bar, pretzels, Goldfish, Cheerios, etc! They will also need to bring their own water bottle each day.  The only thing they can drink at snack time is water! This should be in a bottle with a sports top or pop up straw (tops that screw off often make spills that we try to avoid!) 
-Please refrain from sending your child to school with peanut butter as we have a few children with severe allergies.
- Remind your child about the importance of staying safe in our classroom.  This means we keep our hands on our own bodies and we raise our hand to leave our seats.
- Remind them to ALWAYS ask for help.  
-Remember to have fun while learning!

This week in 1-2:


We will continue Chapter 12- 2D Shapes!  The children did an amazing job with the 3D shapes!  We are learning about curved and straight sides as well as vertices (the fancy name for corners!)

*Please be sure Doubles Facts and Friends of Ten Facts are still being practiced EVERY NIGHT until they are memorized.  Having these facts memorized will make future math concepts a lot easier!

We will begin learning about Advent as well as preparing for our Christmas Pageant! This week we will focus on the week of Hope.
