Getting Ready

Our classroom is almost ready. I can't wait to see it filled with smiling first graders on Thursday. Don't forget students are invited to stop in for a quick visit on Wednesday from 10:45-11:15 if you would like. There isn't anything structured going on at this time but you are welcome to come in and say "hello" and see our room. Here are a few pictures. 
Can you spot your name?

Your wonderful writing will be up here soon. 

Are you ready to ROAR?  You can earn paws by being respectful, showing outstanding effort, acting safely, and being responsible. Every time our class gets to 20 paws, we will celebrate. 

Enjoy your last days of vacation. 
Love, Mrs. Murace

Welcome to all my new students!  I hope you are having a wonderful summer and that you are getting ready to head back to school. We are going to have a great year!  Please take some time before school starts to get your school supplies and do some reading.  You can also brush up on your skills by going on Raz-kids and Dreambox on the computer. I'm already busy planning and will be in school setting up our classroom this week. I'll post some pictures when it's all ready. I can't wait to meet you!

I loved seeing all the creative 100 Day clothing today.  Our day was short but sweet as we did many fun 100 related activities.  
Doing 10 sit ups as part of our 100 exercises 
Seeing how many dice rolls to get to 100
Showing off our 100 day clothing and crowns.  
Here's to 100 fabulous days with this fabulous crew.  Looking forward to 81 more.
