Mrs. Ginn's First Grade
Thank you for sending in the signed permission slip and donations for the Children's Museum Trip on September 28th.
This week we worked on the vowel i. We read many short i words and students sorted them in the pocket chart based on the ending (-it, -ig, -id). We read short i books, wrote sentences and words with short i, and more.
In math, we used popsicle sticks to measure items in the room, including each other. We worked these past two days on showing one more and one less for a number.
Science was exciting this week...we made balloon rockets! Students propelled a balloon in a plastic zip lock bag across a fishing line track. We continued our conversations about compressed air.
We have been discussing responsibility and being a being a responsible citizen in Social Studies. The Studies Weekly is going home today.
We will take our hike at 1pm today. Before our hike, we are going to Mrs. Fig's Team 2-3 class and watch their presentation on Bees. Ask you child what they learned!
We will be going to the Children's Museum of Sonoma County on Friday, September 28th. Get the permission slip in Monday please! I need parent drivers. Please email me or let me know if you can drive. Check with Suzi and give her a current copy of your insurance. So far I have Jim and Brook driving (Vanessa and Erin are at the ready as well). I need more drivers or we can't go. Let me know ASAP if you are available. Thank you.
We will be visiting a Peter pumpkin patch October with 4th with the 2nd and 3rd graders. We will take the school bus. I can take up to 4 parent volunteers. The permission slip is going home today. We will be asking for a $6 donation. I am super excited about this trip! Please read the back of the letter sent home with the permission slip about bees and suggested lunch ideas.
Our Craft basket is FULL!!!!!!! Thank you so much for filling it. I hope I see you all tonight at the Community Welcome Dinner at 5:30pm.
The week of October 8th thru the 12th is Conference Week. We get out of school at 12:05. I will email a google doc later today with an open Conference Schedule. Please sign up for the time that will work best for you. If you have questions or need to meet outside of the conference week let me know. I am looking forward to meeting with all of you.
