Read Across America Day


The first graders did a variety of activities on Monday to celebrate Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss.  All of the first graders were able to read with partners in the hallway.  


They used pattern block to fill in the Lorax's mustache.  

Mrs. Miller updated the symbaloo with a variety of Dr. Seuss sites, so the first graders took advantage and had fun exploring.  

The class had fun reading Dr. Seuss books with a partner.

All of the first graders connected with author and artist, Eric Telchin on Monday in the library.  


The class partnered up to work on their opinion writing.  They were able to discuss their reasons why  apples or bananas are their favorite fruits.  Apples were the most popular among the class.    

The students have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes in math.  Their pattern block templates have come in handy when the students need to draw a shape.  We will finish this unit on Monday and the test will be on Wednesday.  

  • Parent/Teacher conferences are March 10th and 13th.  There will be a 1:30 dismissal on both of those days.  
  • Infinite Campus has been updated, so please take a look at how your child is doing with the math, literacy and behavior standards.  
  • There will be a review week in spelling.  Spellingcity.com is a great way for the first graders to study the words.
