December FUN!

Hello Families,


I just wanted to share a little bit of the fun we have been having this month. There has been so many exciting events (daily) so it has been hard to capture it all, but here is a snap shot into our classroom.

We have moved word wall words so that we do our spelling sheet Wednesday morning and get our new words Wednesday afternoon. This gives you the weekend to work on reading and writing and playing with these words!


Here is a list of our COMPLETE word wall for the year. We are current on week 9 (45 words in)! Some parents had been wanting to see the whole list… so here it is!


Grade 1 Word Wall Words (in order by week, there are 5 words/week)!

These are the most common 150 words in print!

This week we also said goodbye to our ED2500 practicum student Miss Haskins. She was such a gift to our classroom. Our Monday and Wednesday mornings will feel so strange without her!

I wanted to thank you all for the way you have supported our advent this year. So many of you reached out and wanted to offer your time or items towards our fun! Thanks again for being such a wonderful community!


We just wrapped up our first writing unit “Small Moment Stories”, so you will find your child’s writing work in their backpack! Enjoy reading their incredible work!


Have a wonderful weekend!


Mrs. Harris
