Six Flags Reading Program Logs Due February 22!
Book of the Week
The Planet Book
My guided reading group has been researching the eight planets plus Pluto to create The Planet Book. Students and their partners became experts on their particular planet, and we took all of their research notes to make this book. It was added to my classroom library so it can be enjoyed by all of the first graders.
Words of the Week
Unit 4, Week 1 Spelling Words
Last Friday, our class took a pretest to determine our spelling words for this week. We will be studying long a (ay, ai) 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 Friday, February 23.

Meet Your Teacher
Welcome to my class!
My name is Miss Faber. This is my fifth year teaching at St. Mary School.

I will be starting a graduate program at Concordia University this fall to begin working on a Masters in Reading.
I have a passion for reading all kinds of books, writing stories, and Snoopy. My greatest passion is helping my students learn and grow as they become the people they are meant to be. This is going to be a wonderful school year!
