50 days already?!?

Okay, I don't know about you, but I am sitting here wondering where in the world these past 50 days have gone!?! 50 days ago, your little ones entered my classroom for the first time to begin a 1st grade adventure. I hope they are enjoying every minute of the adventure, as I surely am! :) The progress I am seeing is phenomenal. I think ahead in anticipation to what they will be like in another 50 days! Here is what we are focusing on this week:
Theme: Let's Laugh
Story of the Week: On My Way to School
Spelling Pattern: l blends- bl, cl, fl
Math: Addition to 18
Science: The sun
Social Studies: Life then and now

We are almost done with Unit 2!! Next week will be a review week. I will be sending home a list of sight words for your child to practice. Please continue to do the great job with the sight words, as the intensity continues to build.

The 50th day of school celebration is tomorrow (Wednesday). Please dress your child up like he/she is from the 1950s (boys- hair slicked back, white button down shirts, jeans; girls- poodle skirts, capris, sheer scarves around neck). We will have a sock hop in the morning & our coke floats will be on Friday. If you are volunteering for the sock hop, please be at school by 8:30. If you are volunteering for the coke floats on Friday, please come in at 12:50. Thanks for all of your help!

Chick Fil-A spirit night is Friday!! The 3rd grade teachers will be in charge so come out & see them!

Picture proofs went home last week. All picture money is due by Monday November 7th!!

As always, thanks for everything!! I hope you know how much I appreciate your support!!
