Good Evening First Grade Families, 

Here is a fun geography project: 

Introducing Flat Stanley:  We will be reading the chapter

book about a character named Flat Stanley.  

Flat stanley is able to be folded and sent in an envelope

because he is flat.  

Friday of this week your child will bring home a notice

about Flat Stanley's opportunity to travel in the mail to

a family friend or relative in another state in the USA.  

Fill out the form with an address in another state. 

Your first grader will write a letter with Stanley enclosed.  

The recipients will be able to show Stanley sight seeing

in another State, He will be sent back to us with 

information about another place.  We will mark our

USA map and learn about other states.  

We can also give my school e-mail address if recipients

want to send their messages and photos on-line.  

Thank  you for your participation. 

We will begin the project in the new year.  

Other Notes: 

*Tomorrow is the last day to contribute Advent cookies for the Lutheran church. Thank you! 

*Tomorrow the first graders will present a program during chapel at 10:45.

*Thursday, December 19th is the 1st - 8th grades Christmas program.  

Arrive in the classroom by 6:15 with comfortable clothes,

having had dinner and potty breaks.  

Remind kiddos to keep their hands at their sides or clasped

in front of them.  

* Next week - no regular share- we will do the weather

  reports that students have finished in class.  

Thank you!   

Blessings on your evening.

On a warm afternoon with some tired bodies, we had a rest or choice time.   Students were able to relax and be calm and cool.  Sometimes they like to be sprayed with cool water from a spritzer bottle.

Yours in Christ,
AnnMarie Riendeau, 1st Grade Teacher
