First Grade News
We hope you had a great weekend! It was so much fun to see all the Griffin spirit last week as we celebrated Homecoming. Thank you for making it so special.
Please send in the next Classics to Keep, Frog & Toad Together. We will begin reading this together in class on Monday. If you do not have a copy, please let your scholars' teacher know.
This week in Science, we will finish our unit on Matter with an investigation of ways to change matter from one state to another. We will also introduce the Layers of the earth and volcanoes. Lots of fun and exploration happening this week. Thank you to those who volunteered to put the volcanoes together for our scholars to enjoy! We couldn't offer all these memorable activities without your help!
In Math, we will wrap up addition and use all the skills we have learned with number bonds, counting on and number stories to begin our unit on subtraction. This switch from addition to subtraction can be difficult for some students. Keep practicing math facts within 10 at home to build a solid foundation.
Thank you for your partnership and have a blessed week.
