Update 4/13:
Welcome Back!! I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break with your family! I brought back some of the fun family traditions that I had when my boys were small (They are in college.) We dyed eggs, made a bunny cake, and had an egg hunt. My boys were shocked when they opened their eggs because only a few had candy. Most of the eggs were filled with chores! It was lots of fun!

New Learning 
activities are posted on the 1st Grade web page and will be updated every Monday. Under Homework I uploaded the Sinclair Weekly Learning Plan for first Grade.

I will be offering Zoom Meetings twice a week. Tuesdays at 11 am and Thursday in the evening (maybe 5 if that works). I would like to see all my students at both meetings; however, I understand if you can only attend one. Zoom time will be used for interacting with peers and sharing some reading and work. I will send out a message and an email with login information. 

I have office hours set up for Tuesdays from 1:00pm to 1:30pm and Thursdays from 10:00am to 10:30am. However, I will be near a computer and checking email on a regular basis so please feel free to contact me anytime. 

REMINDER 
 Next week, April 6-10 is Spring Break, enjoy your time together!!  I will be in touch after the teacher workday on Monday, April 13 and we will with continued learning review on Tuesday, April 14.


Thank you for checking your email and visiting our class page for any information regarding the closures and learning activities. During the week of March 16-March 20, no new learning activities were assigned due to this being a period of adjustment. On Friday, I did send the students home with reading books, homework notebook, a journal for free writing, and the Origo math journal book. These materials can be used as a review of skills taught in class. For example~ students can read or have the books read to them, retell the story, write or talk about their favorite part, write/talk about the problem/solution, go on a sight word hunt, look for blends or digraphs. Students may write about which character they liked and why. Math they can complete pages that we did not complete in class. More fun and exciting activities are listed in Learning Links on the left to enhance your child's learning. Files and Documents  has some fun videos and reading questions to ask  after they read or listen to a story on YouTube. Sending virtual hugs, stay safe, my eagles.



Please check the Useful Links tab and the homework tab for learning activities!

Please Note:  Students must be with their parents when they pick up meals
