Hello First Grade Families!
We had a very busy week back! We definitely were well rested and we achieved so much this week! We completed our How To writing assignments and began our new story Far From Home. We are mathematicians and are adding and subtracting each day. 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. We talked about being safe at recess and while being in class with others.
In spelling we will be focusing on the <o_e> pattern.
In Reading/Writing we will continue reading Far From Home and begin a new story Going To School. We learn about other countries and how schooling is different.
We will continue adding and subtracting through Chapter 5 in Math. We will continue to practice our related facts (fact families) to enhance our math skills!
Science is all about animals! Our favorite part of Unit 3 is learning about animals and how to group them. We look at how animals are the same and how they are different.
In Religion we will be continuing our conversations of Advent and focusing on PEACE. We will begin to talk about Christmas and how this is so special for us in the Church. We will watch our weekly mass and focus on praying and following along.
*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.
