Hello First Grade Families,

     Our first full week of school is over with a whirlwind of new routines, new friends and new experiences. I am certain that the students enjoyed their time at school and I hope that they shared a few details with you!  Some of the highlights of the week were:

  • We started each day with Morning Meeting—gathering together to learn about each other and to find things in common with new classmates.

  • We enjoyed a funny book, Sally’s Room. This was the perfect story for starting a conversation about making our room a place for all kinds of learning.  Ask your child about the unusual thing that happened in the story.

  • We talked about our families and sketched family portraits –you will see them at Back-to-School night!

  • Several students took a turn as Class Leader, even leading our morning meeting. Ask your child what that is all about.

  • Students explored a variety of math materials--digi blocks, cubes, dominoes, pattern blocks, dice and others to prepare for our number sense work.

  • We enjoyed many books such as The Puppy Who Came to School, Chester and the Big Bad Bully and The Awful Aardvarks Shop for School to name a few.

  • We practiced the fire drill procedure and understand the importance of keeping ourselves and others safe.

  • We participated in a Greenbrook assembly to remember Patriot Day and to learn about the constitution from 5th grade friends.

  • Students practiced 3 ways to read—ask your child to tell you what they are. We learned about read-to-self and how to build strong reading muscles.

  • We voted on a class mascot—we are the Cheetah Class!

  • Everyone made some new friends!

*Allergy Alert: We have several students with severe peanut and tree nut allergies. Please do not send snacks that include these ingredients.
*Back to School Night is Thursday September 18 at 7:00 p.m. This event is for adults only.
*Send your child’s folder to school every day.
