How To Tie Your Shoes

Dear Families, 

Last year, during winter break, I learned how to tie shoes a new way. I hope the following video helps someone in your family to master this challenging skill! 

P.S. I plan to share this with the Snowy Owls during our Morning Meeting on Monday. It'd be great if a student could help me to demonstrate this method!


The 110th Day of School

The 110th day of school is Wednesday, March 7th!  Our class will celebrate the day with a variety of activities that involve the number 110. Please help us to prepare for this classroom celebration. 

Your first grader will need to find 110 items from home to bring to school.  Children could use 110 buttons, 110 toothpicks, 110 stickers, 110 words, 110 cards, 110 stamps, 110 Legos...The possibilities are limited only by the imagination!

Sometime during the day, we'll pass out colored paper for our students to use as a base to organize their collections into 11 rows of 10.  Then we'll walk around the room to check out the many wonderful and creative ways to represent 110.  We've already asked Ms. Berry's class to come in for a viewing!

Please send in your child's collection sometime during the first week back after vacation!
