Dear First Grade Parents,
Thank you parents for the 482 cans of food for the hungry. It is incredible for a small class to reach our goal and more. I mentioned to my good friends at church, and they all wanted me to let you know how kind and generous you are. I suppose what goes around, does comes around. Isn’t that what we have been teaching them?
We will continue to read in our reader and try to understand why the author wrote the story. Every story has a moral to teach, please help your child to understand it. I am asking for full support for the next eight days to help do their reading well, so we can go on our Christmas vacation with a big sigh!
In math, we have started to work on Chapter 6, which covers telling time. It is a short chapter. The Chapter test will be on Tuesday, December 19.
We made Christmas chains to help us count down to December 25th. It is like making our own Advent Calendar. We will be doing lots of arts and crafty kinds of things. We cannot wait for all the gifts under the tree. We drew names to see whom we will get to buy a gift for. I am sure your child will pick up something the receiver would like to have. Don’t forget to bring the toys for the children who will not have toys for Christmas. The toys need to be new and unwrapped. Thank you!
Have a Blessed Christmas,
Ms. Ho and Mrs. Alan
