Chalk and bubble day is finally here!! Tomorrow morning, we will go outside from 9:45-11:00. We will have 4 stations: sidewalk chalk, popsicles, playground, and bubbles. All four of our first grade classes will be outside during this time! Parents and siblings are welcome to come join in the fun as we plan on being outside all morning! 🙂 PLEASE send in a beach towel with your student. After lunch, we will be taking our reading time outside to enjoy each other and the weather! The kids will be able to sit and read with friends to celebrate our end of the year together! 🙂 Thank you to all the parents that helped make this party possible!
… The last week of first grade! Lets see if I can make it through the week with no tears =/
Bubble/Chalk Party: On Wednesday, June 5 we will spend a portion of our day enjoying the outdoors. To prepare for our outdoor activities make sure your child comes to school wearing suntan lotion and comfortable clothes/shoes. Your child can also bring a beach towel and sunglasses to use during our outdoor fun! We will be eating popsicles, making bubbles, drawing with chalk, and more, but we will also use the beach towel again later in the day as we head outside for our last readers workshop! Parents are welcome to stop by! We will be outside from 9:45-11:15ish!
Show & Tell: Our first graders have been waiting all year for Show & Tell! We will have a Show & Tell morning on the last day of school! Everyone can bring in one item for the class to see! Please provide a paper bag in which the item can fit, write down 3 clues so we can guess what the item is! You may bring it in anytime this week! We will have our Show & Tell on Thursday June 6th.
Georgetown School Library Open This Summer: This summer, our school library will be open for students to check out books. On Tuesdays, 10:00-12:00, students can stop by school to check out books and visit with their favorite teachers. I will let you know which dates I will be there! Research has shown that students who choose to read throughout the summer are more successful readers. Help to establish healthy reading habits and mark this on your calendars. Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
I am so thankful for all of the support that each and every one of you provide for your first grader and our class as a whole. This year has been such a wonderful year full of growth and learning! It is so fun to look at where our first graders are at this time of the year and remember back to who they were when they first came in to my classroom. First grade is a year full of tremendous growth and it is an honor to be here witnessing the students’ growth first hand.
In the last few days of first grade, we get to spend some time thinking ahead to 2nd grade and making goals for their future. I know these first graders will be able to attain many great things with the learning support system that you have helped build for them.
Thank you for helping to make your child’s year in first grade a successful one! Thank you to all the WEB readers, parent volunteers, and party planners. Also, thank you for just being fabulous parents and supporting what we are doing in the classroom!
Here is my attempt to try to get 24 first graders to take a picture… =)
Parent Volunteer List
Don’t forget to send your child to school with a lunch and $1.00
I will have copies of both documents for all my volunteers when they get to the zoo!
We will meet you there around 9:45.
Don’t forget to pack a lunch for yourself, money for you and any siblings to enter the zoo, and rain gear just in case!
Please email me with any other questions!
We are looking forward to our field trip to the zoo on Wednesday! We are going to hope that the rain comes before or after our trip, but we will go RAIN OR SHINE! We do need $1 from each student to cover the cost of the trip. Our PTC has graciously covered the raining fee for us. Please send $1 to school with your child in an envelope with your child’s name on it. Thanks so much!
Last night when I was driving home from school, I was overwhelmed with how blessed I am to have your children in my classroom this year and to have such amazing, supportive parents! Yesterday the baby shower was absolutely amazing! I felt so special and so blessed! Thank you for putting in the time, money, and energy to celebrate my precious baby! My husband and I appreciate it so much! You are all amazing parents! I have learned so much from you! I can’t wait to have one of my own =) Thanks again for the beautiful celebration and all the beautiful gifts! We are so thankful!
