1B Mrs. Nichols


Dear Parents,

Happy Mother’s Day to all our 1B moms!  We hope the rain clears for some of the weekend at least and that you enjoy your special day.  Our flat first graders were sent off this week, and we look forward to their arrival back at All Saints soon.  We’re planting our seeds in gloves, and will observe them each day and record our observations weekly in plant journals.  Those seeds really do grow!  In math, we’ll conclude  time and money with a test and a cumulative review.  Our next unit will be measurement.  We have created a May altar in our classroom.  If you have any blooms from your yard, please send them in.



Here are the words for next week:

We have openings for Farmer’s Market, so let me know if you’d like to bring in a fruit or vegetable for Friday snacks!  Thanks to the Saylors, who brought in strawberries and blueberries today.
