Back to School – First Grade

FirstGrade

I can’t believe summer is almost over and the first day of first grade is approaching.

I confess. . . We didn’t read enough and hardly practiced math or writing at all. ML’s reading, math and writing skills may show some summer slide. But her science, physical fitness, meeting new friends, working together as a group and dramatic skills have flourished. Thank You Camp Skyline at the Alexander Family YMCA and Raleigh Little Theatre.

Last spring they had Fly Up Day at ML’s school. The kindergarteners visited the first grade rooms and teachers. Recently, ML pointed to a book I brought home excitedly, “Ms. Young read that book to us on Fly Up Day.” It was First Grade, Here I Come by Nancy Carlson

Ready or Not? Here she comes. . .
