MRS. KING’S LAST DAY
Sadly, Thursday, December 2nd is Mrs. King’s last day with us. She will then go on to 3rd grade at Willard Central to student teach before graduating in May. We will be making a class book from Mrs. King, however, you may want to have your child write her a letter or card to show appreciate. She has done a fantastic job and we will miss having her in our room.
Every year first grade does a large economics unit during the month of December. Starting the Monday after Thanksgiving the students will be able to earn money (yes, pretend) for following directions, working quietly, showing respect, etc. Students will also pay fines for inappropriate behaviors, forgetting to put their names on papers, not cleaning up after themselves, etc. This is a great unit and the students LOVE it. Students will have the opportunity to spend the money they earn at a class store at the end of December. (More info to come soon!) One very difficult skill that is taught during this unit is counting money. This is something that I would love your help on. Please take the time to help your child practice this task at home. Students must be able to count money (bills and coins) to $1.00 for the grade card.
