Dear Parents and Students,

HAPPY LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL! It has been an absolute pleasure being your child's teacher this year (and some of you for the last TWO years!)
It is a bitter sweet time for me, and I am going to miss them terribly.  We have all become so close that I pray it stays this way forever! 
I am sure that I will be seeing many of you over the summer either on the beach or around LB.  I hope that you all have an amazing summer and please know that I am so proud of how hard these children worked this year.  They are so ready for 2nd Grade! 

We will be having our 1st Grade Beach Day on TUESDAY with our RAIN DATE for WEDNESDAY.  Information was sent home regarding what they should wear and what they can bring! Please remember that it is a NOON DISMISSAL DAY! 


I have noticed that there have been a few children not doing their reading logs.  While I am sure your child reads at home, it is important that they complete the activity on the back of the log. This is a good skill to show you if they are comprehending what they are reading.  It is also NOT OPTIONAL!  I know that life sometimes gets in the way, but please do not be afraid to email me or send me a note that they need some more time to complete it :)

  
 *Homework*
Homework is not optional! :) It is something that is very important for both students and parents to do together.  It allows for the parents to know what is being taught in math each day, as well as learning important words that go along with our rules for FUNdations.  Good homework habits happen now- so please help me by completing it each night with your child. It is also 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!**

-CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION MUST BE IN WRITING!
-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:

MATH-

We began our unit on Money last week! They are so good at knowing the coins and how much each are worth.  This week we will be working on grouping coins in different ways to make the same amount.

*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!

Here's to a great year!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Isola
