This month we will be themed around FLEXIBILITY! Follow us on Twitter/Facebook to see activities pertaining to this month's focus.
The Great Poetry Race
April is Poetry Month! We will be reading poetry as well as creating our own poetry. One fun activity is The Great Poetry Race which will be a friendly competition of reading poetry to family and friends. A note will be coming home on Monday so stay tuned and get ready to listen to your little First Grade poets :)
Word Work Check
I will be continuing Word Work Checks this week with students to check their knowledge of spelling the past few weeks high frequency words correctly. I do recommend practicing the below words with your First Grader. Thank you for your support!
