I cannot believe this is the last week with all of you! This has truly been one of the best years yet, and I will miss these boys and girls so much. I told them that Friday is my last day, and that I would probably not be back up here before the end of school, but I will definitely send some pictures for the sub to show the class of baby Zabel! And I hope you will all come stop by and say hi at Open House in August!
Mrs. Myers, who will be taking over for me, came by today to spend some time with us in the afternoon, and she will be back on Friday as well. After Friday, I will probably not be checking my email for awhile. If you need anything, please contact Diane Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A couple things for the end of the year: Next week the first grade boys and girls will be beginning to rehearse for our Moving Up Ceremony on the last day of school. For this performance on June 15, please dress your child in a solid light blue shirt (any shorts are fine). Also, they may bring a beach towel that day to sit on since the blacktop will be hot! Also, please send in a bag of some sort (brown grocery or reusable bags are fine) your child to take home their art smock, headphones, pencil box, etc. on Thursday, June 14.
This week we will be learning about some reading comprehension strategies such as cause and effect and main idea. We will practice this a lot as a class and will also have some graded assignments on this as well. Today was our last Word Study test! Please continue reading at home and getting on Reflex Math and Raz Kids as much as possible. In math, we will practice balancing equations (2+4=3+___) and will continue practicing word problems. In science, we will finish up our unit on plants.
If there is anything I forgot to mention between now and Friday, I will be sure to let you know! Mrs. Myers will keep you updated as well, probably through group email.
Thank you for sharing your sweet boys and girls with me every day! I have had the most awesome students and parents this year! 🙂
