I am very excited about launching this new blog. I hope you will find it useful. General forms about our class are found on the About Our Class Tab, Learning Links has the most used websites that we use in first grade, and newsletters and calendars are found on the corresponding tab.
On Tuesday, February 14th, we will celebrate Valentine's Day with a simple Valentine Card Exchange. I do suggest getting started on their Valentine's Cards this week or this upcoming weekend. It does take first graders a long time to hand write names on 21 cards. They are very picky about who gets which card too. We will be making our Valentine Holders in class. They are "Froggy" themed of course! Please do not send before that Tuesday. The letter and the class list were sent home last Monday, but if you need another copy it can be found under the Newsletter/Calendar Tab.
Hope you all have a wonderful week! See you soon!
