Welcome back to school! We hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving break. First grade students had a wonderful time at Fall Fest. The first grade teachers and students want to thank the parents that made Fall Fest such a great success. First graders are continuing to use learning to read strategies that are helping them read grade appropriate texts. Students are learning to retell stories, ask and answer questions, and identify the setting and major events in a story. In math, students are learning about measurement and graphs. Throughout this wonderful holiday season, remember to read with your child and review homework each night. Make sure to continue to practice these skills during the Christmas holidays.
