Week of September 7-11th

Hello First Grade Families!

We had a busy week in first grade! We continued our story, Time for Sleep, and learned many new vocabulary words. We used our ipads to work in iReady where student are provided lessons for their own level of learning. We celebrated Patriots Day with a red, white and blue dress down day. We had a powerful discussion about September 11th and the students asked respectful and knowledgable questions.

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

In Reading/Writing we will continue to read Time to Sleep and be introduced to What To Do With A Tail Like This. We will begin writing our own informational text on an animal of the students choice.

We will be finishing our Chapter 1 in Math. We will review for two days and test on Thursday. This is our first Math test and although the skills are there the testing portion can be challenging. I will read through each question and provided ample time to answer.

In Social Studies we will finish Unit 1 Time for School. We will take an in class quiz to assess students understanding of the topic.

In Religion we will watch a weekly mass, as well as looking at how Jesus helped others. We will think of ways that we can be better like Jesus.


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

Thank you!

Miss Katlyn Payne
