Mrs. Naret - 1st Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Naret's Class!

"Yes, kids love technology, but they also love Legos, scented markers, handstands, books, and mud puddles.  It's all about balance." - K.G., first-grade teacher

Christmas Party

On Wednesday, December 12, 2018 first grade will be having a Christmas Celebration.  We have set aside the entire afternoon for this activity.  This will be a relaxing time, so we encourage all students to come to school in their pajamas, slippers, and/or robes.

For our snack, we are holding a cookie exchange.  It would be wonderful if every child could please bring in 4-5 cookies to share.  Drinks will be provided.

PTA Holiday Shop

On Wednesday, December 12 and Thursday, December 13 first grade will visit the PTA Holiday Shop in the gymnasium.  If you plan on sending money with your child on one or both days, please place it in an envelope or sandwich bag, write your child’s name, money amount, and provide a list of people they need to shop for.  While I cannot walk around and shop with each student, I can check in on them to see if they need any help.  Also, if you plan on shopping with your child, please make arrangements to come at our designated time.  We will be at the shop on both days from 9:05-9:55.

Thank you!

On Thursday, Loco, the Altoona Curve's mascot, and a friend visited our school for a STEM lesson.  The kids helped Loco find the best spot on the bat to hit home runs.  Check the photo album for more pictures from Loco's visit.

Spelling Test Date Change!

Wednesday and Thursday at school have had a lot of interruptions.  As a result, we have not been able to cover all of the material in this unit of Superkids.  I have decided to postpone our Unit 4 spelling test until Tuesday, December 11.  Homework will also be accepted until Tuesday.  Thank you for understanding!
Also, I DID NOT send home a December Reading Challenge log.  We are not sending one this month because we are offering the December Book-It as bonus points instead.  Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Please have your child wear red, white, and blue to school tomorrow.  Also, we are performing at the high school, which means we have to walk there.  It is supposed to snow/rain and be cold.  Please make sure your child is dressed warm enough.

HELP!!  I want to award extra points for this work, but I can’t because this paper doesn’t have a name! There are a few students it could belong to. If this work looks like it is your child’s, please let me know ASAP as I need to put in the points before report cards come home on Wednesday. Thank you!!
