Week 10 — November 5

Happy November,

The first graders had so much fun on Halloween.  The party was a blast and the parade was a highlight of the day. Thank you to all the parents that helped with crafts, games and providing treats.  We also had a visit had visit from the firefighters. They taught us all about fire safety.  Ask your 1st grader to share what they learned from the firefighters.

Math News from Miss Garcia

Mrs. Bloomfield and I apologize if you wanted to pull your hair out with Thursday’s homework.  We have worked on missing addends with number bonds however, not so much with equations like the homework that we sent on Thursday.

If your child struggled, know that we will be continuing to work on this concept, we just got started!

This week the 1st graders will use a number line to find a missing addend, they will count back to subtract 1,2 or 3 from a number within 10 and solve addition and subtraction word problems.
