Week of October 19-23

Hello First Grade Families!

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

Up Next…

In spelling we will be focusing on the <ll> pattern.

In Reading/Writing we will begin our new story A Fine, Fine School and make predictions about what will happen next. We will also be focusing on the story elements.

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

Science is our new and exciting subject! We will continue to learn about our senses and scientific tools as well as our inquiry skills.

In Religion we will watch a weekly mass, as well as discuss how the Holy Trinity is always with us.

We are so excited for our Halloween activities on Friday! We will making a special craft and having an extra snack.

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.

Thank you!
