First Grade - Mrs. Cofer

Classroom News

First Grade October 15-18

This week we will be doing Parent/Teacher conferences and I look forward to meeting with each of you. Students are off to a great start so far this year and I look forward to sharing their work with you.

School releases at 1 pm on Thursday and there is no school on Friday.

I sent school photo order forms home with students on Friday. Photos will be taken on Wednesday October 17. Students are asked to wear red shirts/school uniforms as usual for this photo day. In the spring we offer photos in non-uniform clothing.

We will visit the Pumpkin Patch on Thursday Oct 18. Each student will get to bring home one pumpkin.

Students are welcome to decorate their pumpkins and bring them to school on October 22. We do not allow carved pumpkins because they tend to start rotting while on display but welcome painted or other crafty pumpkins. Be creative!

In Language Arts we continue to practive beginning and ending consonant sounds. We introduce the /f/ sound spelled f as in fit and ff as in staff. We will also review k, r,  and s. 

In Math we focus on subtraction and practice counting on and counting back finding the most efficient ways to add and subtract. 


Mini Book Reports

Students will bring a book and a Mini Book Report home this week. The book report is due on or before Thursday. If you have a book at home that your child wants to use for their book report, that is OK. I don't care where the book comes from, we just want students to read, take an AR test and do the report. I recommend reading each night at least 20 minutes. Take an AR test as often as you can on whatever books you read, this is a helpful tool to help students gain skills in comprehension.

I am honored to have the opportunity to teach first graders at St. Nicholas School. I have been blessed by this school community in so many ways and feel so privileged and blessed to share in the growth of our students.
