Go Eagles!!! We had a fun Friday showing off our school spirit and cheering with the super fans. It sounds like the Homecoming Football game was a good one. :) :)
On Friday, we also began using our first grade iPads for the first time. We’ve spent a lot of time the past few weeks learning how to use technology in first grade. Our class has had a blast playing on ABCYa.com! We visited RazKids, a fantastic website full of books at your child’s just right level, on the computers this week. (A note with your child’s log in information was sent home on Friday.) We also learned how to use these iPad apps: Find Sums, Endless ABC, & Endless Reader. In first grade, it’s important for your child to become comfortable with logging in, using a touchpad, double clicking, taking care of laptops and iPads, and other common tasks that are required when using technology. We will continue to build on these skills in the following weeks.
October 1 – Happy Birthday Micah!!!
October 3 – Library Day
Please help your child return his/her library book to school today.
October 5 – PTC Meeting @ 6:30
October 6 – Popcorn Day
This week your child will bring home some important reading homework. On Monday, look for an envelope in your child’s blue folder containing sight words to practice. Plan to keep this envelope in a safe place, so you and your child can practice these sight words quickly every night. New sight words will be sent home when your child moves on to a new set at school. Sometimes this will happen in just a couple of days. Other times it may take a week or two before your child receives a new set. Please save all of your child’s sight words, so you can go back and review some of the older ones periodically. Knowing many words by sight will help to boost your child confidence and fluency as a reader. Thank you so much for your support at home!
Look for an e-mail later this week with details about our Halloween Party including how to sign up to donate supplies and volunteer your time. We are getting excited to celebrate with you on Friday, October 27 from 12:45-1:30.
