We had a great week last week learning about Dr. Seuss and enjoying Read Across America. We also enjoyed our field trip and digging in the pile of rocks outside. We are off to a great start in March and I plan to be working your students very hard. They have met so many of my expectations already and I know they will keep up the great work. Please continue to encourage your student to read and write as much as possible. There is always a book on their level in their binders but they should be doing better choosing books on their level from their own library and the school's library. Thank you for continuing to work with your student as it shows in class.
I sent home a letter on Friday explaining the Goods and Services project that we will be doing at the end of the month. Your student chose what they wanted to do as a good or a service such as making paper airplanes or selling candy. Please look over what your student chose as their good or service that they would like to sell at the end of the month. They need your permission to complete the task since it will be done mostly at home over the next 3 weeks. We will be setting up stores in our classroom and having another first grade class come in a purchase those goods or services. The students will make the goods ahead of time at home and then bring them in the day before the store. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email or call the school. The students get very excited about this project and it really helps them understand about goods and services and being a consumer or a producer.
