What's Happening in 1H

FROM THE DESK OF MRS. HOLZINGER

Happy October.

October can be a busy month. We are now fully into the swing of things. Daily homework has started. We are busy learning about fire safety, Columbus, and all things Halloween.  

Just a few general reminders:

DIRT sheets are due on Mondays (or the first day of the school week).

Please check the homework (red) folder daily.

Shutterfly is up and running.

We are peanut free for snack time (you may have peanut products for lunch).

 

POKEMON CARDS

Students have been bringing in Poekmon cards. This is fine for recess time but I have told the students that they are not allowed to trade them (trading cards has always caused problems in the past). I also am asking that I only see the cards at recess. I am asking that you remind your child of these rules as we are starting to have some issues with Pokemon cards taking over the class. If it continues to be an issue I will need to restrict them all together. Thank you for understanding.

We worked on our memory words.  We learned about questions and using question marks. We focused on character and using pictures to help with understanding text.

We continue to write poetry.  In math we continue to review adding and different ways to add. We are learning how to use a “part, part, whole map”.
