Welcome to first grade! I have been busy getting ready for the start of school, and I just can’t wait to see you on the first day of first grade. I will meet you on the lower playground on Wednesday, August 31st at 8:15 am. Please be sure to bring your backpack, snack, water bottle, and gym shoes. You do not need to bring any other supplies. I will have everything you need here at school. If you have already bought school supplies, they will be great to use at home! You can bring a bag of extra clothes to keep at school. Please put them in a ziplock bag with your name on it.
Have you ever looked closely at insects? We will start the year by learning about insects. Could you see if you can find a dried insect to share here at school? We will be looking closely at them and comparing all the types of insects that we see in Vermont.
Here are a few examples:
It will be so much fun to learn together this year. Don’t forget about our classroom Open House on Tuesday, August 30th at 3:00. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon!
