May News:

May is here; and the first graders are busy!!!  We will be taking so many tests this month to finalize the last report card.  Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats breakfast. 

The students have begun a science unit on plants.  We planted carrots and green beans in the classroom to observe the parts of a plant.  Fingers crossed that they grow!

In reading, the students have been focusing their learning on folktales. Our next skill will be comparing and contrasting fairytales and fractured fairytales.  We will finish out with a unit on plays in preparation for our trip to the Maryland Theater to see “Junie B. Jones”. 

 We are working through our last unit in Math.  Keep practicing those math facts!
