Updating you on my way home from Wisconsin! Hopefully the last few days have gone well with our sub, I know the kids are in great hands with Mrs. Sexton. I will be back Tomorrow, I can't wait!
On Wednesday we will be having an On Demand Writing Assessment. We will start right at 8:00. Students will be given a prompt, time to create a thinking map and write a rough draft and time to write a final draft. We will be taking a quick recess break after students finish their rough draft. I know writing tests can sometimes be overwhelming for students but this assessment will just be used to see where students are at the beginning of the school year. We will take the official writing assessment for the state in November.
It is that time to sign up for our Parent/Teacher Conferences! I love having this time to meet with you and discuss your child's progress so far in first grade and look at some goals for the rest of the school year. To sign up please click on the link below.
Last week in math we worked on fact families or related addition and subtraction facts. To understand this concept I put the students into groups of three and gave them each a number. They made their number poster and then met with their group to create 2 addition and 2 subtraction facts. Each group showed their facts to the class, it was a lot of fun! I love doing hands on learning to help kids grasp ideas!
I Love Seeing these kids take ownership of their learning!
Please feel free to email me or contact me through Remind if you have any questions or concerns. I will see you Tomorrow!
