Miss Peter's Grade 1 and 2 News

November, 2016

Coming Up...

This month we will be unpacking addition and subtraction and understanding the concepts of “greater than, less than, and equal to”. We will be working hard to read books that are at the appropriate reading level as well as something that is interesting to us. We will learn about what it means to be a leader in Social Studies; Air, Water, Weather and the Water Cycle in Science; and Healthy/Unhealthy Choices in Health. These are just a few things we will be learning, stay tuned for more updatesJ

A little bit more…

Please read with your child as often as you can. Check the calendar for library days. Reading at home helps a great deal with improving your child’s reading level. 3-Way conferences are coming up. This will be a great opportunity for home and school to connect about your child or answer any questions you might have. I am looking forward to sitting down with you all! Stay tuned for more information about this day. Don’t forget to check our school website, classroom newsletter, or sign up for our classroom Remind (instructions attached) to stay up to date. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support, I appreciate it!
