Week of October 12-16

Hello First Grade Families!

We had a great week in first grade! We continued our story, Stellaluna and added in a classic Frog and Toad Dragons and Giants. We will continue to look at beginning, middle and end for comprehension. We have been focusing on word choice and why an author chooses each word. We used our ipads to work in iReady where student are provided lessons for their own level of learning.

Up Next…

This upcoming week will be very busy for us. We will have a Days of the Week Spelling Test on Friday.

In Reading/Writing we will continue reading Stellaluna and Dragons and Giants. We will be focusing our attention on friends. Students will begin writing their own narrative story of their favorite memory.

We will begin Chapter 3 in Math. We will focus on addition strategies and how to use what we already know to help us add.

In Social Studies we will be completing our Unit 2 Communities. We will take our Unit 2 Assessment on Wednesday. We will begin SCIENCE on Thursday!!

In Religion we will watch a weekly mass, as well as discuss how Jesus’ followers showed their commitment to God.

Please continue to let me know if you have any questions/comments.

Thank you!

Miss Katlyn Payne
