Week of October 5-9

Hello First Grade Families!

We had a fantastic week in first grade! We began our new story, Stellaluna. We will look at beginning, middle and end for comprehension. We used our ipads to work in iReady where student are provided lessons for their own level of learning.

This upcoming week will be very busy for us. We will have a <or> Spelling Test on Friday.

In Reading/Writing we will continue reading Stellaluna. We will be focusing our attention on bats. Students will complete their writing of informational text on an animal of the students choice.

We will be completing Chapter 2 in Math. We will focus on subtraction and how word problems can show us our equations.

In Social Studies we will be continuing our learning of our communities. We will be focusing on our other countries customs and traditions. We will be practicing our cardinal directions and practice using maps.

In Religion we will watch a weekly mass, as well as looking at the Ordinary Time part of the Liturgical year. We will focus on what we learn during Ordinary Time and how the Church looks.

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

Thank you!

Miss Katlyn Payne
