We love our Reading Time!

We have been working on a few Reading routines this week.

First, we practiced how to “turn and talk” to a friend to discuss the story we just read.  Looks pretty good to me!

Next, we worked on how to choose our books. Ask your child about I PICK and the 5 finger rule!

I can already tell that I have some bookworms in my class!  We LOVE our time to just kick back, take off our shoes, and put our nose in our favorite books!  We cherish this time.

Boosterthon Fun

Jamming out at the Rock’n Town Fun Run kick off!! 
What a great opportunity this is to learn important character skills while having fun and raising money for our school! Remember to log your child in on www.funrun.com so they can get their bracelet.

First Day of 1st Grade

I want to thank my sweet boys and girls for a great week in 1st grade.  Not only were they getting used to a new grade and routine, but so was their teacher!!  I will say, we all learned alot and were exhausted by Friday, but all had smiles on our faces!  To make you smile this long weekend, here is a pic of all our sweet classmates!

Supplemental Supply List

Welcome sweet friends!  It is going to be a FANTASTIC year in first grade.  I’m so excited!!!

Our district provided a standard supply list for every grade level, which leaves us to ask for a few supplies that did not make the list and we feel are necessary in our classrooms at Dove. Here is the First Grade Supplemental Supply List.

Please send these supplies by the first day of school.  If you need assistance, please feel free to contact us!
