We all survived our fist week back to school!  I am so proud of the first graders, I am sure they were exhausted every day when they came home.  Getting back into the routine of school can be tricky for kids.  They worked hard and were real troopers this week.

Next week we will be on a more normal routine with the exception of Friday.  Friday will be Unity Day, which I am VERY excited about.  Normally we would have Library on Friday, but Mrs. Hickman rescheduled us for another day this week so we don't miss our very first week of Library.

We will begin Fundations next week.  We will be working on lowercase letter sounds and letter formation.  The first unit lasts for three weeks.  We will also begin our first Math unit which deals with adding and subtracting.  We will begin with learning about number bonds.  You may see a little bit of homework come home with your son or daughter in the next couple weeks.  In Shared Reading we will continue to read stories that encourage character development.  The students are very excited because I told them we would begin Reading Centers also next week!

If you have not yet signed up for Remind 101, please do so.  It is a great way to get reminders about things happening in our classroom.  Last year I had every parent sign up and it was so nice to be able to send out reminders about things and I even surprised students with pajama days a couple of times.

I attached a screenshot of the directions.  Just text @laue2014 to the number 217-712-2124.  When you text that number, it will shoot you a confirmation text.  Make sure you confirm that you signed up!  If you have any questions let me know!  You do not need a special app on your phone to sign up for reminders. 

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  Book Orders are due September 5th if you are interested in ordering!
