Dear Parents,

Thanks for all you do. We had a great week! We will be testing sight words and other assessments for report cards. Please continue to work on math flash cards, sight words, and retelling a story. Students also need to know the differences between fiction/nonfiction books. We will have a vocabulary test as well. This week first grade is celebrating Dr. Seuss Birthday. Please refer to your blue note that was sent home last week.

Thank you,

Mrs. Marshall
