News for the week of May 20-25


Dear Room 10 Families,

The Community Projects last week were wonderful! We were able to video tape each presentation and uploaded it to SeeSaw for you to see. You can also download it from there if you want to keep it. We are so proud of our amazing first graders!  We hope you enjoyed this project as well!

This week we are finishing up our math unit on Fractions where we have been focusing on quarters, thirds and halves. We have started to talk about time and will be learning time to the hour and half hour.  We are continuing our ocean unit to study the deep ocean this week! We can't wait to show you everything we have been working on!

OPEN HOUSE: Please mark your calendars, Open House is Thursday, June 6 from 6-7pm. Though it is hard to believe the wrap up for school is upon us, we only have 20 days of school left. We have so thoroughly enjoyed working with and supporting your children on their first grade journey. And we are so grateful to each of you for your support both in and outside the classroom. Your kids have accomplished so many things this year and have all grown academically, physically, emotionally, and socially. We have become such a tight knit group of learners that we want to make sure to celebrate and honor this special year. The kids are working hard on many special projects, which they are so excited to share with you. Please plan to come in and check out all the incredible work your First Grader has done this year! Siblings and extended family are welcome. Your
first grader will be your tour guide!

News For May 13-17



Dear First Grade Families,

We hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day and celebrated all the amazing moms in your life today!

This week, we continue our fun study of the ocean, learning about sharks, fish, and creatures of the deep. Our ocean learning adventures have been a favorite with room 10 kids and it has been a joy teaching such enthusiastic learners.

We will also be doing a lot of review with math and reading skills these next few weeks.  As you read with your child each night, please try to commend how far they have come as readers and point out a specific area of growth that you have noticed over the year, such as reading fluency, reading with expression, sight word mastering, phonics rule master (silent e words, vowel patterns, etc.), or simply developing a genuine love of reading.  We will be conducting many assessments in the coming weeks and can't wait to conference with each student about the tremendous growth and goals they have accomplished this year!

COMMUNITY HELPER PROJECTS:  We hope you have all enjoyed doing this fun project with your child and we can’t wait to see these adorable presentations this week. Julie and I will be filming these and posting your child’s presentation video on Seesaw.  Please let us know if you need to change or need a reminder of your child’s presentation date. 

FIELD TRIP FORMS-   We can't wait to meet our Tam Valley pen pals on Tuesday, June 11th and celebrate our fun first grade year at Country Club Bowl on Wednesday, June 12th!  Be on the lookout for both of these trip’s permission slips in your child’s Wednesday folder.  Also, don’t forget to let us know if you can drive on one or both of these trips!!  

MEMORIAL DAY is Monday, May 27- No School! Enjoy the long weekend together and don’t forget about the fantastic Mill Valley Carnival! 



WEB OF CONNECTION LUNCH- Thursday, 5/16-12:00-12:40.  
We hope you are able to join us this Thursday for our last web of connection lunch with Edna kids and parents! Plan to bring your lunch and sit with a group of students on the playground and chat! 

Below are some fun conversation starters:

·      Do you have a story from your family’s past that everyone in your family knows?
·      Where are your relatives from?
·      What do you like to do when you are not in school or at work?
·      Is there a special place anywhere in the world your family likes to visit?
·      What food do you hate that your parents tried to get you to eat?

We hope to see you there!
