We had so much fun with the "Neighborhood News" play. The kids really worked hard on putting on a great show for our first grade audience. I promise to invite all of you to a play in the future. We just needed to get one or two under our belts first!
Field Trip: The kids were thrilled with their first trip to the nursing home. They especially liked the pictures that one of the gentlemen made for each of them. I know that a few of the kids plan to take a picture to give to him next time.
Math: We will continue to practice finding the missing partner and the missing total.
Science: We will be looking at what plants need to survive and the parts of a plant. Ask your child what plants need to survive (air, water, food, space and sunlight).

comprehension skills: making predictions
grammar: recognizing nouns (people, places, things & animals)
high freq. words: brother, caught, cheer, learn, lose & straight
