  • Welcome to Mrs. Burt's Web Page!

    Good Morning Families,

    Please take a few minutes to check out the Week at a Glance.  At the end of the  week we will be completing our final round of MAP testing.  I can’t believe we are so close to the end of the school year.  I will also be sending home information about our Class Picnic this week (June 3). A volunteer letter was sent home last week for Field Day, which will be held on June 8.  Don’t forget that the early dismissal days will begin on June 9 and will continue until the last day of school. 

    Congratulations to all the students that participated in the Science Fair!  

    Have a wonderful day,

    Mrs. Burt

    Dear Families,

    Please take a moment to look at the Week at a Glance. The class headed over to New Street Park on Thursday for recess.  Everyone seemed to have a great time. This week the Science Fair will take place on Thursday, May 12. Please be on the look out for Field Day information.  We are looking for parents to help run our games.  Field Day will be held on June 8th.  We are also planning to have 1st grade picnics in early June at New Street Park. 
    More information will be sent home soon.

    I want to wish all of our moms a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

    Have a great weekend,

    Mrs. Burt

    Dear Families,

    Happy May 1st.  I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.  Please take a look at this week’s Week at a Glance.  I wanted to thank everyone for getting the New Street Park Permission Slips back.  I hope to get the class over there this week.  I sent home an order form for Field Day T-Shirts.  Please send all orders in by Friday.  You can also order on-line.  First grade is wearing blue t-shirts this year.   Field Day is being held on June 8th.  If your child has a summer birthday (June 17- August 31)  be on the look out for an email for what day we will celebrate his or her birthday in class.  Please use the Safe Snack list that is posted for Birthday Treats.  Remember to send in spoons or forks if they are needed with your child’s snack.

    Thank you,

    Mrs. Burt

    WELCOME BACK! 

    Hope everyone enjoyed their Spring Break.  Please see the Week at a Glance.  I will also be sending home a permission slip so our class can walk over to New Street Park at times for recess. If I do not get a signed permission slip, your child will not be able to go. The class is close to filling another sticker chart and this time the reward is extra recess.  I would love to be able to go to New Street Park as a reward. 

    Looking forward to seeing everyone,

    Mrs. Burt

    Good Morning and Happy Sunday,

    I hope you all have weathered yesterday’s storm and the kids got a little time to play outside.  Boy is it cold out there! 

    Please see side tabs for our Week at a Glance, Valentine’s Card list, and Valentine’s Box letter (boxes should come to school decorated).  A tip that may help your child with Valentine's Cards is to have them just sign their name and not put them to a specific student.  This way, they will not have to read the names when passing them out.  They can just put a card in each box.

    Hello Parents,

    Happy Sunday!  Please see the Week at a Glance for this week. I am planning to do an Ice Cream Sundae Party for the kids on Valentine's Day.  Students will need a box for their Valentine's Cards.  I suggest a cereal box or shoe box.(see notes on side tab) I will send a Sign-Up Genius for donations at a later date.   

    I did decided to do our MAP testing on Thursday and Friday of last week.  The class did a great job of following directions to log on and worked very well.  They were quiet and respectful to each other during the test.  I am super proud of them! 

    PLEASE REMEMBER I AM SENDING SOME HOMEWORK ON SEESAW! I will send home a note in your child’s folder that says they have Seesaw Homework.

    Have a wonderful day,

    Mrs. Burt

    January 4, 2022
    Hello Families,
    I am excited to say I will see your children back in the classroom on Tuesday morning. 
    A few quick reminders...
    • If you drop your child off the doors open at 7:50am.
    • Anyone entering the school is required to wear a mask.  Even parents picking students up at the office.  
    • School is closed on Monday in observance of Dr. Martin L. King,Jr. Day.
    • Your child will need their home folder and charged Chromebook when they return to school.
    • I will be using Seesaw for some of your child's homework.  Your child will get a paper that says they have Seesaw homework in the home folder.
    • MAP testing is coming up soon.  I do not plan to test on Tuesday or Wednesday when we return. I feel the students need some time to adjust and relearn classroom expectations before I test.  I am going to see how they are before deciding on testing days.  

    Thank you for all your help and support with our quick change to Virtual Learning.  We found out at the same time as the parents and it was a little unnerving but we made it through!  Fingers crossed we don't have to do it again this year!  Please check out our Week at a Glance.

    Have a great weekend,

    Mrs. Burt

     
    January 7, 2022
    Hello Families,  Sorry I did not post last week and I hope you and your families are well. With the quick change to Virtual Learing I did not want to post a Week at a Glance becasue I honestly did not know what we would get done.  Thank you for your help and patience this week.  As you know we will continue to work virtually next week. I sent a new schedule, Week at a Glance and Phonics Unit 7 word list in my email. The schedule did not change very much.  The change is the start time.  Please have your child on at 8:10am.  I will also post the schedule on Seesaw like I did this week. 

    I hope you all have a nice weekend,

    Mrs. Burt

    This week…

    • make sure you look at the Week at a Glance.
    • we will wrap up Unit 6 of Fundations this week.  I plan to do the assessment first thing Thursday morning.  This gives you time to practice the words (see list in back of your child’s folder).  I will send homework to practice the words as well.  If your child attends Basic Skills they are on a slightly different schedule and will not assess with me on Thursday.
    • if you signed up to send in supplies for our events…                  CLICK HERE to see list.
    •       Ginger Bread house  supplies are need by Tuesday.
    •       Hot Chocolate supplies are needed by Thursday morning.

    One last thing, I have a personal day on Monday meaning the students will have a substitute.  

    Thank you for all your help with supplies to make our activities possible. 

    Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years,

    Please see the Sign Up Genius to help with our Holiday Events.  CLICK HERE

    Please make sure you check your child's folder for homework.  I have added Xtra Math to the math assignments.  This is a computer program to help build on your child's fact fluency (knowing facts in a snap).

    Have a great week!

    Mrs. Burt

     

    December 4, 2021

    Good Afternoon,

    • Please see the attached Week at a Glance.
    • Don’t forget we have Early Dismissal Monday-Thursday this week.  If you have not signed up for a Conference please contact me as soon as possible.
    • The 1st grade Christmas Show will be Wednesday, December 15.  There is a virtual and in-person option.  Please make sure you look for information about this from Mrs. Marchese and the Main Office.
    • The Technology Department has asked us to pass on some important information.  Many of our Chromebooks have been getting damaged.  They are having a difficult time getting parts in to fix them.  We have noticed many touch screens and key boards are sticky and full of crumbs.  Please help us keep our devices up and running.  We need your support at home as well.  There should be no FOOD or DRINK around the devices. I have decided to stop sending devices home for the weekend.  We will put them in our class cart and have them charge, so they are ready for the week. 
    • I have attached an Amazon Link on the Week at a Glance with a Class Wish List.  These are some supplies that we could use in our classroom.  Please don’t feel obligated, I just wanted to give some ideas.

    Have a great weekend,

    Mrs. Burt 😊

    Hello Parents, 
    I hope you all had a nice week.  The students are really starting to learn and use our class room rules and procedures.  We have... finished our MAP testing, are learning how to log in to our computers, practiced using some Seesaw tools, in math we are use number bonds, equations, and counters to represent addition (we have worked on ways to make 5, 6, and 7).  We finished our story Wild About Books and even examined a painting.  I am reading a chapter of a Magic Tree House book each day. In phonics we are practicing letter recognition and sounds.  We are also working on our handwriting skills. During Morning Meeting we are brushing up on counting, the days of the week, and months of the year.  We even learned how to write the date with numbers (9/25/21).
     
    I am looking forward to starting our new Module for Reading.  Our next books are Museum ABC and Tomas and The Library Lady.  I will put links to these books next week.   In math we will continue to build our understanding of addition with part, part, whole,using number bonds, and equations.  In phonics we will finish the remaining letters. 
    Please don't forget to come to Back-to-School night on Monday, September 27th.  Scroll down to get to the link to sign up and get more information about Back-to-School night.
