The Trotta News


Dear Parents,                                                         November 21, 2014

           Thank you for taking the time to come meet with me for parent-teacher conferences and being involved with your child’s progress and success in first grade. The students are doing wonderful in first grade!

              The students will be working on subtraction strategies for the next two weeks. The chapter 4 math test will not be until after Thanksgiving break. I will send home extra practice for students to work on over the long holiday weekend.

            In writing, the students have created a realistic fiction character, setting, problem and solution. They are drafting their story and following the rules of 5 star writing. We have been talking about the sequence of events and rereading our stories to make sure they make sense. Please encourage this at home.

           After the holiday weekend, we will be starting our unit called “Olden Days.”  To kick off this unit, the students will enjoy a presentation on November 24th called “In Days Gone By.” We will be learning about food, clothes, jobs, school, and toys from long ago. The students will compare and contrast life from long ago and today. On December 10th, we will be making ornaments from long ago.  * This will be the last newsletter until December 5th. Have a nice weekend and Thanksgiving!

Mrs. Trotta
