Hello ! We have been very busy in our classroom! Between making up for lost time during snow days, and assessing, we are always on the move!

I will send home a report next week about your child's current reading level.  As we start the second semester, in our journey to second grade, I would like to ask you to work with your child each evening on the following: [*]READ READ READ.  Reading daily is...

Hello! Tomorrow is SPIRIT DAY at Mary Castle, as we prepare to celebrate our Open House on Sunday. However, as I mentioned in yesterday's listserve, our class has earned a pajama party. So you can have your child do either...wear his or her Mary Castle t-shirt that PFO gave them for the Global games, or their pajamas! The choice is yours! (or theirs). :)   Thanks so much!

Hello Families!  I hope you are having a great fall. We have enjoyed a lot of outdoor play during recess. Please be sure to dress your child for the outdoors, as we will go (unless it's raining) when temperatures are above 28 degrees. Our student council is currently promoting a sock drive for children in need. The classroom that collects the most pairs of socks wins a donut party. The next time you are out and about, please consider donating a pair of socks to help someone less fortunate. Friday, November ...

Hello Families! I hope this is finding you well on this beautiful Fall day! SO much is happening these days in room 104. Here is a quick snapshot of what we are learning: [*]In Reading, we are learning strategies for sounding out unknown words. We are also working on character, plot, and setting in a story..the "who, what and where".  When you are reading with your child, talk about these important story elements to help aid in their comprehension of the story. [*]In Math, we have been working on s...

Hello and Happy Friday! We have had a FANTASTIC week in our classroom! We have hit the ground running with our academics, and I am sure your children are coming home exhausted. This is one of the primary reasons we don't assign homework in first grade. We feel that we work them very hard for 7 hours each day, and when they go home, we hope that they relax, refresh, read and rejuvenate!  Soon I will be sending home Lexia Login information, and that will be a way that your child can get in some reading sk...

Hello! Welcome to the first newsletter / listserve of the year! I hope that your child is enjoying first grade!
