First Grade News

What a great year in First Grade this has been.

Our first graders proofread as a whole class and help to "correct" our many capitalization, spelling, and punctuation errors in our morning message. Students learned to demonstrate command of English Language conventions in grammar and usage when writing and speaking.   At home, please continue to read every night together through the summer. 

In math,first graders have worked with time, money, and the meaning of numbers greater than they can count, and  two and three dimensional shapes.

Please keep reading all summer long! It really makes a difference!
