First Grade - Mrs. Cofer

Classroom News

WOW...last week of the Trimester and then a week-long Thanksgiving Break!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Gala Saturday night. It was great to see so many parents there and thank you to the new owners of our class project! I hope you enjoy it for many years. If you see or know Sara Adams, please give her a pat on the back for a job well done on organizing the Gala. She, along with the planning committee and School Board, did a fantastic job and it is A LOT of work. 


Also, thank you to those of you who were able to join us for our Veteran's program on Friday. The students did a nice job with their singing. We had an in-class discussion and a few students who have parents who are veterans were able to share their stories with us. They are proud of their parents, as a daughter of a veteran, I understand how they feel and they were so sweet to listen to the story of my dad's career in the Air Force. 

This week we will be wrapping up the first module of our Math curriculum...we continue to decompose the parts of ten and after Thanksgiving break we start playing with the teens! Woo hoo. The students are really doing well and I am so proud of them. Keep up the good work you are doing at home by helping them with their math homework. 

In Language Arts we look at words that end wtih /ng/ like king, ring and wing as well as words that start with Q. We'll be doing a lot of reviewing of short vowel sounds and practicing what we learned last week about consonant digraphs th, sh, wh, ch, tch, in with, ship, whale, church, latch and climb. 

We are doing a couple of crafts and writing related to Thanksgiving and on Friday we are going to make some apple pies! 

There are no calendar events that are out of the ordinary, except on Thursday everyone is invited to come to lunch for a turkey dinner. You must RSVP for this lunch so we are sure to  make enough. Please RSVP as soon as you know if you can join us. Thanks!
