Hello First Grade Families!
We had a very interesting week in first grade! We continued our story and read A Fine, Fine School, and we also introduced our new story Recess Queen. We continued to look at each story element and gave many details and reasons to our opinions. We continue to use our ipads to work in iReady where student are provided lessons for their own level of learning.
We are really working on staying safe and following our classroom rules. We want to continue to be in school and know how important it is to be safe.
In spelling we will be focusing on the <ss/zz> pattern.
In Reading/Writing we will continue our story Recess Queen and use context clues to gain understanding. We will focus on the characters and work with adjectives to describe them. We will also be focusing on opinions and their reasons.
We will begin Chapter 4 in Math. This chapter focuses on Subtraction Strategies. We will learn many ways to help us subtract.
Science we will be thinking like engineers! We will look at how engineers work using the Design Process. We will look into materials and how they are made, or where they come from too.
In Religion we will watch a weekly mass, as well as discuss how the Church serves others. We will look into the Pope and his responsibilities to the Church.
*We are always in need of baby wipes and disinfecting wipes. We use about 200 disinfecting wipes and 125 baby wipes a week!*
Please continue to let me know if you have any questions/comments.
