Mrs. Malone's First Grade Class

Mrs. Malone’s first graders are having a fantastic year!  We have 16 friends that do a great
job utilizing their LIFESKILLS and Lifelong Guidelines every day.  We have worked very hard
so far this year to become fluent readers and creative writers! We are currently enjoying our
“Goodnight Moon, Hello Sun” unit of study.  Throughout this unit, we are learning how to
describe and predict patterns of sunrise and sunset, observing and recording the Moon phases
on a log each night to watch how the appearance of the moon changes over time in a predictable
pattern, and learning about technology that helps the study of the Sun, the Moon, planets, and stars.  
We are going to become super astronomers by the end of our unit! Come visit our classroom and
meet all of our stars!

Dear Bookman Families,
Our first grade charity this year is to collect money for the Columbia Police Department’s K-9 Unit.  We want to raise money to put towards a new bullet proof vest for one of the police dogs.
Each classroom has a “piggy bank" container for any donations.  Students will come around and pick up donations every Wednesday for the entire month of March.  The last day to donate will be Tuesday, March 27th.
The Police officers and dogs will be coming to Bookman the following day to collect our donations.  We are so excited! Thank you in advance for donating any of your loose change!
First Grade Students and Teachers


Families, please see the calendar below. We have a challenge for you. Each day for the month of
March we would love for you as a family, but at least your student/child to complete the daily exercises
. After the exercise has been completed, please initial the box. Please complete this for the entire month and return at the end of the month with your student/child’s name on it to Mr. Schirmer.
Each student that completes the entire month will be entered into a raffle to win a BIKE!!!
