February Reminders

Look at all of those WORDS! 
Way to go, First Graders!!

I will be counting Reading Minutes on February 9th. We are hoping that our school will reach One Million Minutes on the 9th!! Please make sure your child contributes to our reading goal and remembers to read and color in their light bulbs for the first part of February by next Wednesday. I will count again the end of the month for our classroom graph. 
Here are some examples of the Leaders in our classroom... Yippie! Keep up the great work!

Math- Graphing

Learning how to take a survey and collect data using tallies ( such a cute pic). 
Don't forget to start the Major Savers Fundraiser. The first collection day is February 10th.

Raquel was in the spotlight last week! We enjoyed writing a book for her.

Check out what the students have been creating during library time... They learned how to research and use their coding skills to make the robot Dash parade around with the penguins.

Helpful Reminders:

Please remember to fill out the light bulb page with your daily reading ( they are so lucky- this is their only required homework). This is the last week of January reading minutes! As a school, we are trying to reach 1 Million Minutes of reading.

Family Bingo Night is Friday the 29th. 

Our POD Winners voted to have "Bring a device OR a small toy" on Friday the 29th. Please make sure the toy is small and does not have too many little pieces.

They loved Opinion Writing today! We kicked off our new unit with writing about our collections. Today they chose their favorite and wrote at least three reasons why it is the best. They used blue ribbon paper to write about the best. Their collections will stay here for a few days as we get through our few days of the new unit.
