Mrs. Hewey’s First Grade News

September 19, 2016

Dear Families,

Last week we had our first full of week and it felt like the children were starting to relax and enjoy the new routines of first grade.  We began doing writing every day during writing workshop time.  The children are writing true stories about something that really happened to them.  We call these “Small Moments” stories.  The students have three page books and they try to draw the story over the three pages and write words if they can.  Some children wrote about a time when they did something fun, like going swimming, going to a park, celebrating a holiday or planting a seed.  Others wrote about a time when they had a big feeling, like when they had a bad dream or they lost their toy.   You can help by talking to your child about some times when he or she has been really happy, surprised, scared, or even mad.  Have your child tell you the beginning, the middle and the end of the story.

Ask your child to tell you the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff.  Some of the kids have been acting out the story on the playground at recess!



       This Thursday is Back To School Night at East End Community School.  Please come between 6 and 7 PM to visit your child’s classroom and meet the teachers in our school.  Your child will show you around the classroom and the school!

Special News:

         I am going to start putting my newsletter on the school website.  This will make it easy for you to check the newsletter on your phone or computer and to get translations if you need it.  Please fill out the attached form if you don’t have the Internet and you want me to keep sending you a paper newsletter on Mondays.  Otherwise, I will send you directions to get the newsletter on the computer!

Thank you!  Kristie Hewey
