1st Grade


Dalton Local Schools Vision -  To collectively strive for excellence by inspiring and challenging each student to be their best.

First Grade Newsletter-April 5, 2019

GROWTH MINDSET: Instead of “I can’t.”, use “This is hard for me but I will try!”

BOX TOPS: The school gets money for BoxTops and they really do add up and make a difference.  Please keep collecting and sending them in.

SPRING PLANT SALE: People didn’t stop talking about how nice their plants were last year!  We enjoyed our strawberry and tomato plants. Check it out!!

READING : Please check Week at a Glance 5.4 to review the High Frequency Words, spelling words, vocabulary, structural analysis, skills and stories for the week.

PLEASE have your child work with the WONDERS Reading Program.  This is the CONNECTED site and log in that your child may have received earlier this year.  RAZ Kids is great, but CONNECTED will give the children practice with the weekly phonics skills, sight words, decodable readers and stories read in class.  The web address is: https://connected.mcgraw-hill.com/school/6u8x. (The children use this site in the classroom and are able to log in once the initial web address has been typed in.)


Math: We finished our SLO in Math and will begin reviewing addition strategies including making a 10 to add numbers.  Ex: 9+6 is the same as 10+5 so the answer is 15.
