Crew News August 3, 2011

Fantastic First Day
We had a fantastic first day today. We began learning all about each other and how things work in first grade. It was such a short day that we didn't have time to do a lot but it was so nice to get to see each other and start to build our community. Below is a picture of our smiling crew.

Math  ~  Gather together 20 pennies, 5 nickels, 10 dimes and 2 quarters. Put them in a ziploc bag with your child's name on it. Have your child bring it to school by Monday, August 8th. This will be their coin kit for the year for math. They will keep it in their desk. You may add an extra coin or two in case one gets lost. As you see notes on some of the Math Home Links (homework pages) asking you to send in coins, you will be able to disregard these because you will have already created a complete kit for your child.

Note About Getting These Posts by Email
I will post pictures and/or videos on the blog very often. If you subscribe by email, you may need to go directly to the blog to view the pictures or videos depending on your email provider. Some providers will bring the pictures right into to your email, some will have a link to click and some will simply remove any pictures. So, notice how your email provider handles this so you will not miss out on any exciting news about our crew.


  1. Thanks Ms. Jill for a wonderful first day! Dillen was so excited about his "own" desk and eraser with his inititals on it! It's the small things in life that make first grade so great!

  2. Oh my gosh! Nico was also very excited about having his own desk and about having computers in the classroom. He was also very excited to meet his crewmates. He hasn't stopped smiling since he came home!
