First Day!

on September 6, 2011

Yea!  We had a great, but busy first day.  Here are some of the highlights:

  • We had our very first Morning Meeting where we greeted each other, shared our favorite color, and sang a song.
  • We sorted our supplies.  If your first grader still has supplies in his or her backpack, bring them back to school tomorrow so we can find a home for them!
  • We read the book The Night Before First Grade.  We discussed the different feelings that the main character was feeling and how we felt some of the same feelings.
  • We went to lunch and recess. I had 4 lunch boxes left in the lunch bin, so if you are missing your lunch box, have no fear it is probably in the B3 lunch bin!
  • We explored pattern blocks.  I was impressed with all the ways the frist graders of B3 used their pattern blocks. 
  • We had gym with Mrs. DeMar.  Our next gym day is Thursday, so remember gym shoes.

In your child’s take home folder are a couple of sheets.  One is a sheet about listening conferences, please read, complete, and return.  Another is a sheet about parent volunteers.  The third is an information sheet. 

The first day and week of school is always a bit hetic.  Please feel free to email any questions or concerns no matter how big or small.  Take care and have a wonderful night!
