Week 27 February 29-March

February 29, 2015
Dear Parents, 
We hope you enjoyed your weekend!
Dr. Seuss's birthday is coming up soon! If your child would like to share any of their favorite books, please have your child bring them in. For his birthday, we will be celebrating by having fun snacks and activities. On Tuesday, we will wear crazy, mismatched socks. On Wednesday, March 2nd, we will dress up as our favorite character from Dr. Seuss. 

We will begin our maps, legends, and fairy tale unit in Social Studies and Reading. If you have any maps, globes, compasses, legends, or fairy tales, please send them in with your child. Please make sure your child's name is on the items, so we can return to them back to you at the end of the unit.

We would like to ask you for your cooperation. Lately, the first graders have been playing games that are quite physical: play-fighting, throwing rocks and bark. We have talked to the kids about this and would like you to talk to your child about this as well.
