1st Grade- Room 16

Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Christine Lindgren. I am a first grade teacher. This is my 22nd year teaching first grade here at Queen of all Saints and I am so blessed to be a part of this school family.
I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. I am looking forward to becoming partners in your child's education. I want to develop a relationship that includes openness, support and communication. I know we are going to have a great year full of growth and change for all of us along with a lot of fun. 


iReady Info

Here is some information about the iReady program we are going to be using in school. We will be doing the diagnostic tests at school. Then kids can continue on their customized learning path in school and at home. We will be starting this week and next week with the diagnostic tests.

A Peek at OUR LAST WEEK! May 25-29

Happy Last Week of School!!!
This has been one crazy school year. We have been given a difficult situation and I believe we have done great considering the circumstances. 
I could not be prouder of all of the students (you too parents!) for taking this way of learning and doing the best we could. Even from a distance I have see so much progress and I have no doubt there will be great things ahead in second grade. 
So here we go for next week:
Reading for 30 minutes and math for 30 minutes a day. Anyway you want to do it is fine. 
Seesaw activities for 30 minutes. I put a bunch of fun stuff for the end of the year including a memory book. 
ABC Countdown- Letters R-Z
And That's it- DONE! Yea!!
Tuesday May 26- Item Pick Up Day
On Tuesday you can come get your child's things. Please refer to Mrs. Carlson's Principal Post for your time.
We are going to be sending home report cards for first grade on Tuesday. Other grades will be doing it another time. 
Please remember to bring back any classroom books or library books you have at home. I did find some library books at school when packing things up. If you can't find the book it might be at school. 
You DO NOT need to bring any work back. Everything the kids have been posting on Seesaw and doing on other websites has been more than enough to see how they are doing. 
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you so much for all the support you have given me during all this. I could not have done it without you!!
Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend!
Mrs Lindgren

A Peek At Next Week - May 18-22

It's hard to believe that we have been doing this as long as we have. We have just two more weeks of e-learning. We can do this!
Here's what's up next week:
Writing- Fun end of the year stuff. 
Grammar- Review of nouns, verbs, adjectives
Word Work- Contractions
Reading- Raz Kids
Math- websites, work for 30 minutes
Religion- Miracles of Jesus
ABC Countdown- Letters M-Q
Next week I will be going into school one day to gather together the kids items and get them ready for pick up. Mrs. Carlson sent an email yesterday explaining how/when you can come get their things. 
There are some things I am going to need you to bring back when you come. If you have your Read Every Day bags with classroom books please return them. Also if you have your school library book that needs to be returned also. I do not need any work back. Everything you have been posting on Seesaw and doing on the websites has given me enough to do report cards. You do need to keep posting things through May 29th. 
If you do not want to pick up your child's things or can't pick them up I will still have them bagged and you can get them in the fall. If you don't want any of it I can toss it too if you want. Just let me know. 
This has been one interesting year for sure. I can't thank you all enough for being so supportive though all this. I hope I have made things as easy as possible for you. I know teaching your own kids is sometimes tough (mine have been no picnic on some days) but we did the best we could and all we can do is keep moving forward. Please let me know if there is anything you need in these last weeks. 
Have a good weekend. 
Take Care,
Mrs. Lindgren

A Peek at Next Week- May 11-15

I can’t believe how fast these weeks are flying by!
Here is a look at next week:
Writing- I’ll post a some more writing lessons on Seesaw.
Grammar- Homophones 
Word Work- Prefixes and Suffixes
Reading- I am not going to post assigned books anymore. There seems to be a lot of overlap between what I assign and the Level Up books. I get the same information from the completed Level Up books. Continue to work on those books so they can move up to the next level books.
Math- same as last week
Religion- Bible stories: Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Whale
ABC countdown- letters I-L 
Hope things are going well. Stay safe and healthy!
Mrs. Lindgren

A Peek at Next Week- May 4-8

Here is what's happening next week.
Writing- I will post some more writing lessons on informational writing. 
Word Work- oi, oy sound
Reading- Raz-Kids. I'm going to post new book assignments only for Mon/Wed. Tues/Thurs you can pick what you want. Remember you have to finish all the books in the Level Up to move to the next level. 
Math- We are done with the book so math from now on will be mostly review. 
Religion- Bible Stories
ABC Countdown- Letters E-H. I hope you are enjoying the fun activities for each letter. I found an ABC countdown activity for Seesaw. I will post a memory page for each letter you can do. I found it yesterday so I have already posted A-D for you to go back and do if you want. 
Hope you are all doing well. I miss the kids so much! Enjoy your weekend.
Take Care,
Mrs Lindgren
