First Grade - Mrs. Cofer

Classroom News

The Last Full Week of First Grade

Wow. We are nearly at the end of our year! We have a busy week ahead and some really fun days on the schedule. First, academically we'll be reviewing in Language Arts. We will not have homework this week but I do expect students to read every night! This is a good habit to maintain and continue all summer long. Our class has made great gains this year and I don't want anyone to lose ground over the summer so Read, Read, Read! Also, students will have a summer AR goal and if they achieve it, they will get to attend the end of summer pool party. 

In Math we will continue studying 3-dimensional shapes and as long as students are working in class I will not send home Math homework. We will be making paper model shapes and turning them into mobiles so we're crafting and learning at the same time. It should be fun.

On Monday afternoon the PTC will reward our class with an ice cream party because first grade students brought in the most donations for the Jog A Long! Way to go students!! Wowzers! First grade rocked it!

On Thursday we will go to the Minidoka County Historical Museum for some hands on learning about the early days that ties in with some of the things we've learned by reading the Little House on the Prairie series. After our field trip we will return to school to watch the annual Second Grade play and enjoy their homemade ice cream! This is always a treat.

On Friday afternoon all students who have achieved or surpassed their Accelerated Reader goal will get to attend the reward event which is a bus ride to Century Cinema 5 where they'll enjoy popcorn, candy and soda while watching the movie Ferdinand. This is always a fun trip and a good reward for all of our readers' hard work.

Great Field Trip

We enjoyed beautiful weather for our field trip to the ice caves in Shoshone. Thank you to the many parents who drove and chaperoned. Our students were very good listeners and very well behaved. It was a good trip.
