Tuesday – 1st grade WAVE Day

Wednesday Jan.  4th - Field trip to the Jacksonville Airport.  The first graders at Stateside Elementary have been learning about Force and Motion. On January 4th, students will be going on a field trip to the Albert Ellis Airport. Buses will depart from Stateside at 9:00 am. From 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. students will explore different aspects of a working airport. We should also be able to see some of the airport employees training exercises. After this students will enjoy a picnic lunch at the Onslow Pines Park. They will be back to school around 1:00 pm. Please remember to pack a lunch if you chose that option on the permission slip. Parents are welcome to follow the bus to the Jacksonville airport or meet us there. Reminder: You will need to plan on paying a parking fee at the airport.   

Homework: Along with the letterland and the math worksheets you will notice that there are 2 comprehension questions pasted into your child's writing  journal.  Please have your child use the Nonfiction paper book, in their baggy, to answer these questions. Your child needs to read the questions on their own and use their book to find the answers. After giving them the opportunity to practice this skill you might be able to give them some small hints if needed. Being able to complete the writing response is essential to them passing their next reading assessment.  Please return the plastic bag, reading book, and the writing journal every Friday. Benchmark testing will begin next week, January 9th.

Thank you for your continuing support and as always if you have any questions or concerns please email me at jewel.bregel@onslow.k12.nc.us  or on the Remind phone app.

Class Newsletter September 12, 2016  

 9-12-16

Dear Patriot Parents,

Hello! The past two weeks of first grade have flown by. The students are adjusting well to their new classmates, the rules, and the routines of first grade. Thank you for your support as we start another year. Without you, the transition would not be as smooth. I am excited about this new school year and all the exciting things your child will learn.

What are we learning?

This week’s homework: Homework is very important in order for students to continue practicing the skills we learn in school.  Math, reading response, and spelling homework will begin today. All homework goes home on Monday to be returned on Friday.  Two math review sheets, a Letterland spelling practice, a graphic organizer for character & setting, and a reading response sheet are included in the homework folder. For the graphic organizer sheet, your child will use a book he/she has read and draw a picture of the book’s characters and setting. Your student should label the picture with a short sentence. Your child has practiced this activity in class. If you have questions, please send me a text on REMIND. I am happy to help.

Word Study: Letterland Phonics: short o (Oscar Orange) ot, op, ock     In order to make sure our new Patriots are on the same level as our returning Patriots, and to refresh those who used Letterland in kindergarten, we will continue review the Letterland characters, letter names,and sounds. In class we have practiced the Look, Say, Write phonics homework skills in preparation for phonics homework beginning this week.  Please read over the Letterland Spelling explanation sheets in your child’s homework folder.

Homework: Nightly Reading: Students should be reading at least fifteen minutes, four nights a week. A Reading Log for the month is in the Homework folder in your child’s binder. In order for me to verify your student has completed the reading homework, please remember to sign your student’s reading log nightly. Free Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza certificates will be given out at the end of the month as a reward for completing reading homework

Reading: Right now we are learning Daily 5 routines to help build better independent readers. Students are practicing picking Good Fit Books so they can independently read and practice identifying common story elements. These elements include characters, settings, story problem, and solutions. Please refer to the informational letters on Good Fit Books, and the Daily 5 explanation letter.

Math: In class we are practicing counting to fifty and working with a 120’s chart. We spent last week reviewing addition strategies and will be introducing subtraction strategies this week. 

Writing: Basic writing conventions are very important to building strong writers. This week we will continue to review spacing and move on to capitalization and building complete sentences. We also have begun writing Small Moment Stories, which cover a single event.

Social Studies: We are learning about authority figures and their roles not only at school but also at home and within our community.

Notes, Reminders, and School News                                                                                                         

Medication Reminder: Please remember that students cannot transport medication (prescribed or over the counter) to and from school. All medications will need to be brought to the nurse’s office and she will transfer them to the teacher.

Transportation Changes: If your student will be going home differently than their normal routine, we will need a note clarifying the change in their transportation. If the change needs to be made after the student is already at school, please call the front office to make the change preferably before 2:45 p.m. Transportation changes made after 2:45 p.m. hold up the busses and cause confusion for the students.

Popcorn Fridays: This year our school will be selling popcorn, lollipops, and Goldfish crackers on Fridays! Each snack is priced at .50. Students may bring their money in Monday through Thursday. Money will not be accepted on Friday. The purchased snack(s) will be delivered to the class after lunch on Fridays.  Friday snack sales benefit our class directly, helping to purchase new supplies for our room. When sending in money, please clearly mark the purpose on the money envelope so there is no confusion about the snack purchase. When I check your student’s folder I will sign my initials on the envelope so you know I received the money. Money just placed in a book bag is often not turned in or is lost.

Homework Calendar: The homework calendar suggests what homework needs to be completed for each individual day. If you jump ahead of the calendar’s suggested date of completion, please understand your child may not have covered that lesson in class yet.  Unless otherwise noted, all homework during each week of the year will go home on Monday and should be completed and turned in on Friday. If you have questions please send me a text on REMIND.   

Breakfast and Snack – Please be sure your student eats a substantial breakfast at home or in the school cafeteria every day! Many students have been complaining about hunger and asking how long until lunch by 9:30 a.m. Our class goes to lunch at 11:10, and we do not eat snack until 2:45 p.m. Please remember to include a healthy afternoon snack in your child’s lunchbox or book bag daily (labeled with their name). My stock of snacks is already diminishing quickly! If you would like to donate snacks, please contact me.  

Please feel free to contact me with any joys or concerns you would like to share.  Please check out the class webpage at http://stateside.nc.oce.schoolinsites.com   click on staff on the left side of the page and then find my name on the list of teachers.

My email is jewel.bregel@onslow.k12.nc.us, or you may text me on REMIND.

Thank you,

Mrs. Bregel    


Earbuds  

Patriot parents,

This year your First Graders will be interacting with technology in our classroom every day. We are excited to have more computers in our classroom this year! For hygiene purposes, we ask that you please send in one pair of earbud-style headphones for your child to use when he/she is on the computer. I will store each student's earbuds separately so that he/she is the only one using them. If your child prefers another type please let me know. Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you!
