Setting Leprechaun Traps
First grade has begun a new tradition! We designed and created our very own leprechaun traps!
We set up the traps around the school. We didn‘t catch any leprechauns, but they did leave us some surprises!
Words of the Week
Unit 4, Week 5 Spelling Words
Last Friday, our class took a pretest to determine our spelling words for this week. We will be working on compound words this week. Your child will come home on Monday with their identified list. They will either study words from the purple list OR the orange list. Please leave this list in your child’s Home folder on the “Right Back to School” side every day so you will have the words all week. Our test will be on Thursday, March 24.
