Gust Elementary

1st Grade

Hard at work!! November is a busy month for first grade. In math we are working on adding and subtracting to 10, and number stories. In literacy, we are working on retelling stories in sequence, using reading strategies to read harder books, and writing informational texts. Please make sure you’re filling out the monthly reading logs that are sent home and reading with your children at least 15 minutes every day!

With the cooler weather it is so important to send your child with a warm coat, hats and gloves or mittens. Students will play outside for as long as the weather allows and in the case of snow or rain students will meet in our auditorium in the morning and during recess time.


Thank you for supporting Gust and your first grade students to make this a successful year!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
