Weekly Update!

Hello First Grade Families,


Next week's special is music!


This week, we finished up our unit introducing teen numbers in math. We discussed how a teen number has one group of 10 and a certain number of ones. 


In literacy, we are wrapping up our unit on “Goods and Services,” discussing consumers, producers, and how supermarkets work. There have been several interesting conversations surrounding these topics! In addition, we continue to work on decoding CVCe (consonant-vowel-consonant-e) words such as cake, bike, and mule. Plus, digraphs and blends are a focus, especially for those who are in the 2G reading level. Please look for new work lists coming home next week! Your help and support at home is greatly appreciated and noticed!


As a reminder-please make sure your child has a water bottle and slippers each day.


I have created a “wishlist” on Amazon. It can be found by searching “Ms. McGibben’s Wish List 21-22 Rattlesnake Elementary School” or by this link https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1AG8XRSDRWX8Q?ref_=wl_share

While I do feel uncomfortable putting this out there, some parents have asked what they could provide or if I needed anything. So if you are curious…there are a few things that would be super helpful! In addition to the list, we could always use Lysol or other wipes to sanitize, markers, and pencils.


Thanks to the PTA! I have really appreciated their funds, which are raised from families like yours! The funds allowed me to purchase a new area rug for our class back in the fall. In addition, the money supplied dry erase markers (which we use several times a day!), some books, and supplies for different art projects!

If you are interested in donating to the PTA, please contact rattlesnakepta@gmail.com


Have a wonderful weekend!
