Happy Spring Break!!
5 DAYS to go!  Please be on time and present each day this week.

We are in need of snack donations.

Special Request:
  In an attempt to expand our discussion about cities and specifically Chicago, I would like to invite you to assist your child in taking 2 pictures of your part of the neighborhood with your cell phone.  Our sister classroom on the Northside will be invited to do the same and we will share and compare.  You may print and send them in or send copies to my email.  (Preferably taken by your first grader– no more than 3)

Home assignments:

Read daily and keep track of minutes
Sight word practice: while, place, under, always, father

Math worksheet & memorize single digit facts practice (Mon – thur)
Fix the sentences worksheet (Mon – Thur)

Reading Log: (note: please try to read a minimum 10 minutes each day.  An adult reading aloud to a child counts.  If you miss a day simply write 0 on the line)

Parents,

Please ask your child to practice single digit addition and subtraction along with their nightly math sheet.  This practice is very important at this stage.

Please dress the kids in layers, warm in the classroom, cold outside!

Please consider running for our Local School Council.  It is an important civic duty that requires only one meeting a month and some training provided by CPS.  It is an elected position and carries with it some experience that can be quite fulfilling and enriching.  Applications are due soon.  Check with the main office if you are interested.
