Weekly Classroom Newsletter 3/30-4/3

Dear Families,

My son and I were out for a walk today, and we saw a beautiful rainbow.  It reminded me of the lesson that we completed in 1st grade last month on Noah, and God’s promise.  It is also the inspiration behind this week’s suggested learning activities.  Please remember to give yourselves and your students grace, as we all help each other through this difficult time.

Zoom Class Meeting

This week’s Zoom Class Meeting will be on Tuesday, March 31st, at 10:00 a.m. I have sent the email invite to each family. If you did not receive it, please let me know. We will be sharing what book/story we have read while we have been apart, and what we loved about it. Students are encouraged to have a copy of the book/story, or an illustration of it to share as well. I cannot wait to see all of you!

Ideas For Learning Activities This Week
All of these ideas are optional, and they do not get turned in. They are suggestions only.
1. Rainbow writing: Use your favorite stuffed animal as the main character in a story that you create. It can be fiction or non-fiction! Write each sentence in your story in a different color of the rainbow (Red/Orange/Yellow/Green/Blue/Indigo/Violet).

2. Rainbow Backyard Scavenger Hunt: Make a list of items you find in your backyard that are the same colors as a rainbow!

3. Rainbow poetry: Write an acrostic poem, using the word rainbow. For example:

Reminds me that God loves us.


I love different colors.



Orange is the second color.


I am sending love and prayers to all of you!
Mrs. Croft
