1st grade Newsletter April 24, 2017


Dear Parents



Students will be taking the Idaho Reading Indicator in the next couple weeks.  The goal for the end of first grade is 53 words per minute.  On the other side of this newsletter is a practice story.



Students will begin testing on Module 4:  Place Value next week.  To get ready for the test, have your student work on www.zearn.org as much as possible; it aligns with our Eureka math program.


Looking Ahead:

Field Trip to Deyo May 4th (Thursday) - Please send your child to school already sunscreened.  He or she may wear a cap that day and should wear tennis shoes.


We are publishing a class job book.  Parents will have a chance to purchase one.  I'll send home the order forms next week.


Count your age by friends, not years.  Count your life by smiles, not tears.       - John Lennon
