First Grade News
Happy last Monday of the year! This week your scholar will slowly bring home contents of their desk and cubbies. It's hard for our littles to carry all of these items home on Friday, so we send a little bit home each day. Please check their backpacks each afternoon for these and other special items such as poetry portfolios and hook books.
Please keep in mind that instruction continues through the very last day of school. Scholars will be given assessments on May 27th and will receive a grade of zero if not present at the time of the assessment. Scholars will not be allowed to take these assessments ahead of time. Please plan to have your scholar attend for the entirety of the day.
In Literature/Grammar scholars will reflect over their year in First Grade and write a letter to the scholars who will be joining the ranks of First Grade next year . Scholars will focus on the genre of poetry this week as we put the final touches on our poetry portfolio.
In Math, we will focus on a cumulative review of all the skills learned this year in preparation for a test on Friday.
In Science and History, scholars will reflect on the units we have covered and create a special page for each in our memory book.
Yearbooks should be distributed this week. We will send them home as soon as they arrive. Please label the book with your scholar's name if you plan to return it to school for peer signatures. Scholars will be allowed certain times for book signing during the last few days of school. On Friday, we will have a small celebration in the afternoon to enjoy our little group one last time before the adventure of summer begins.
Thank you for your continued partnership in helping your scholar with their reading and homework and to arrive to school on time. Keep up the momentum and have a blessed week. 😊
