Space Camp and Trip to the Planetarium
The students in my class are so excited about 2 upcoming events--Space Camp and our Trip to the Planetarium. Permission slips will be going home soon for the field trip and more details are to follow for Space Camp.
Spring is Here!!!
Spring has arrived! We are learning all about Space and the Solar System in Science and the students love it. They are so eager to do science every day! In Math we have moved on to double digit addition and subtraction! Please have your child practice their math facts at home as much as possible. Flash cards are the best method! We are reading harder selections in Reading and the my students continue to amaze me every day with their reading fluency. They are hard workers!! We have moved to 12 words on our Spelling tests and will have that number for the rest of the year. We have started our personal narratives and are excited to write creative details in them. We are practicing every day now for our show! The children are practicing their lines but please have them practice at home too. Thank you in advance for all your support for our show!
Thank you to everyone who has been sending in the extra supplies that our class is in need of at this point in the year. We greatly appreciate it. When you send in wipes, please make sure they are the wipes the students can use on their hands for snack. We have plenty of disinfecting wipes for the desks, faucets, etc.

Read, Read, Read!!!!
Reading is so important in First Grade. Please read at home with your child. Setting aside a few minutes a night is all you need to do to encourage reading at home. Please remember to send in your reading incentive list of the books that they have read. Please also send in a peacock feather that will be added on to each child's peacock on our class bulletin board.
Homework will be given Monday through Thursday nights. We will have 2 assignments a night. A math assignment and a Language Arts assignment will be given. The language arts assignment may be a spelling, grammar, phonics, or poetry assignment. We will also have a fluency folder that goes home on Thursday nights for the weekend. Just a reminder that a speller's choice assignment should be done every Monday and Thursday in addition to our other homework. And as always, please read every night!! Keep those reading charts coming!! Please go on Raz Kids as much as possible also. I assess the children often so they are on the reading levels that they should be comfortable decoding.
Welcome to Mrs. Downey's First Grade
We are going to have a wonderful year in first grade. I look forward to all our great activities for the year! If you ever have any questions or concerns, Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
