Good afternoon Parents!

Just a couple of reminders:

·         Tomorrow is SPIRIT DAY! The students can wear green, the Leader In Me t-shirt, or Addison Spirit Wear. If we win spirit day, we get to keep the trophy for the week! J

·         Homework is due tomorrow. Please return the homework folder with the Spelling Grid and homework packet. The spelling grid will be used all quarter, so please keep this grid in the folder in the plastic sleeve.

Have a great night.

Ending Week 2! Beginning Week 3!

First, thank you to all of you who were able to make it to Open House. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to see everyone. The first two weeks have been filled with rules, procedures and getting to know each other! We had the opportunity to have Learning Commons orientation, the students met the new Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Waite, and we had Lightbulb Lab on Friday! This coming week brings a visit to the Science lab, another visit to the Learning Commons and Lightbulb Lab! 

What will we be learning!

In Writing, we will begin working on narrative writing. In Language Arts, the students will be introduced to Daily 5, and we will be working on our Read to Self stamina and choosing "just right" books. We will begin learning about our Daily 5 centers and expectations during Daily 5. This will continue for a while. In First Grade, we really work on developing independence and reading stamina, which is a work in progress. In phonics, we will be practicing with "l" blends. In Science, we will begin learning about weather, weather instruments and types of precipitation. In Math, we will begin our unit on representing numbers, collecting data and graphing data.

We have elected our first Leader of the Month! Congratulations to Gabriel Bernardino! He was elected by the class for showing leadership qualities.

Class Wishlist

If anyone has Legos or plastic lap desks they would like to get rid of, these are items I am hoping to add to the class!


Please keep in mind that we have tree nut, peanut, raw egg and seafood allergies and a gluten intolerance in the classroom. Please keep this in mind with snacks, lunches, birthdays, etc. 


Homework will begin this Monday. Please return by Friday and study for the spelling test on Friday. The students will have a spelling test each Friday.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and the students come back Monday ready to learn! Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

We had a great first day in first grade! It was VERY busy! We met new friends, toured the school and had the opportunity to hear an interactive story in the newly renovated Learning Commons! It was a very successful first day. Here's a peek at some pictures from today.
