We had so much fun making applesauce on Tuesday and (almost) everyone loved eating it too. I have to be honest, it is SO easy and SO delicious that my family usually makes it at home at least once a year. The students even wrote their own versions of the recipe on Friday. We also did an apple cider taste test to wrap up our apple explorations.
In math we are working hard on our addition strategies. This week we spent some time counting on, working on our doubles fluency, and learning how doubles +or- 1 can help us solve equations easily.
Don’t forget that school picture day is on September 27!!! An order form came home with your student this week.
I would love to see you at our Willard East Open House on Thursday, October 6th. This will be a come and go event and a great opportunity to see everything that your child has been working on in first grade! The fall Parent / Teacher Conference sign up sheet will be available in my classroom and our Instructional Coach, Cassi Harper, will be in the computer lab to help you with any Mastery Connect questions or concerns.
The Book Fair will be open September 30-October 7th! It will also be open from 5:30-7:00 PM during Open House. If your child goes in the morning, they need to come check in at the classroom first. I HIGHLY encourage them to wait until Friday to shop (other than with you at Open House or before / after school) because that is when we will go as a class, during our regular scheduled library time.
