Welcome to 1st Grade


Classroom News and Notes


Week of Nov. 28 – Dec. 2


Happy Monday!  I hope you all had an excellent Thanksgiving break!  It was so nice to spend some time at home with my family, working on projects.  I am so thankful for each of my students and their families. Now we are in the season of Advent.  We are getting ready to celebrate Jesus’ first coming while also waiting for his second coming.  We will spend time each day reading an Advent devotion and lighting the special candles.  This is a fun time of the year.  We will also be decorating our classroom for Christmas and for our Christmas Open House.  Remember to invite grandparents or a special someone to come to the Christmas Open House next Thursday.  


Show and Tell this week is something red.  


Happy early Birthday to Simon!  His special day is actually December 30th.  We will celebrate with a tea party on Friday.  God’s Blessings to you for a fun year being seven, Simon!


Bring back November Bookit! Sheets on Thursday or Friday.  New sheets will come home this week.  I can’t wait to see how many minutes the  kids have read in November. The more you read, the better you read, so read, read, read. :)
