Puppy Pow WOW and Ice Cream

Happy Friday,

First grade had a very exciting week! Ask them about their new classroom pets. Our Caterpillars arrived yesterday and today they were able to observe their very own caterpillars with their six grade buddies! Pastor Mark came and taught us about Israel crossing the Jordan. We made a rainbow to ten and worked out all the different combos to make ten. We worked on what a Noun is and what a verb is. We learned about text features and main idea! They are doing Outstanding!

With the end of our fall fest fundraiser this week it was announced that we have earned our ice cream party and a puppy pow wow with Miss. Stueve's pup Gus... more info to come one when those will be!

I hope to see you all tomorrow at our Fall Fest!

Blessings,

SUGAR X3

IT WAS A DAY FULL OF SUGAR!!!! 

Your first grader enjoyed three wonderful treats today! I pray you have a restful evening :). They worked hard on their Christian Studies, read to their awesome 6th grade buddies, and rocked their first writing assessment! They learned about nouns and verbs, worked on text features, and started to master main ideas.

They are SO close to reaching their goal for fall fest. Your first graders have raised $1,948.76. They only need to raise $451.24, to get their ice cream party. Plus, the school is doing a Fall Fest Quick Finish Weekend. 

We are challenging the students to raise $5,000 over this weekend, October 7-8!  If they accomplish this goal, they will win a Free Dress Day, date to be determined.  Packets should be turned in on Monday, October 9, and they will be returned that afternoon for continued collecting.  Preschool packets are due Tuesday, October 10, for the Quick Finish Weekend.  Pledge packets are due for good on Thursday, October 12!


Good luck in your collecting!

Ice Cream and Roll Playing

Thank you all so much for coming out to open house. It was so wonderful to see everyone!

I have to say, my favorite part of the day, is when we roll play our Christian Studies stories. This week we acted out The Great Flood, God's Promise to Abram, God Gives Abraham and Sarah a Son, and Isaac Blesses His Sons. They get so into it!

Your first graders also mastered story elements in a text. Ask them what story elements are, I am sure they will be able to answer. They did outstanding on their spelling list, and worked really hard on patterns and pattern units in math. It was a GREAT week!

Have a BLESSED weekend!

Second Week!

We are just getting in to our normal routine, and that will take some time! This week we roll played two different Bible stories, Creation and Cain and Abel, (pictures to come on seesaw). We ROCKED our memory verse, most finding it to be super easy! We learned about bats, when reading our first English/ LA books.  We used what we learned from our book, Stellaluna, and worked really hard on our beginning, middle and end writing and drawing project. They will show you at open house on September 14th. We have finished up our start smart math, and will be moving on to our first chapter this next week.


I pray the smoke stays away and you're able to go and enjoy God's creation this weekend!!!  This week was rough, not going outside for recess, but your 1st graders handled it very well! However, it was a blessing to seem them running around on the playground today!

 See you Monday for the first full week of school!
