We will be having a Valentine card exchange on February 12. A list of classmates has been sent home.
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a restful break. It is hard to believe the first semester is winding down. We have learned so much already! Though we still have a lot of work to do, it is exciting to see the growth students have made as readers, writers, mathematicians, and thinkers!

A note about field trips. After our field trip to the Hartje center on October 8, we only have two more field trips for the rest of first grade. I’m sure it seems like we go on a lot of field trips! This year, our theater field trip was early. We will be snowshoeing in the winter and will have another outdoor adventure in the spring. Thank you to those who volunteered at the apple orchard.
We had a wonderful time exploring and touring Oakwood Fruit Farm. The weather was ideal! Children learned how apples are picked and packaged to be sold. We also got to taste grapes and look at apple trees. Students had apple cider donuts and apple cider for snack when we returned! Pictures coming soon!
I am excited to begin a new year with a new group of first graders. We will get right to work! Please visit this site often to find out happenings in our first grade classroom. The pages at the top will give you a brief overview of what we are doing in various subject areas.
