  • We have our field trip tomorrow.  The students will be outside for a good portion of the day.  Please dress accordingly.
  • If any parent has time to volunteer this week please let me know. I have some classroom organization I need assistance with; you would not be working with students.

This week we will read Emmanuel’s Dream. This quarter first graders will hear many stories that feature diverse characters. We will identify story elements such as characters, setting, character development and author’s purpose. We will use the book to make predictions and inferences. Students will continue to identify character traits that support a growth mindset and perseverance. This week students will compare themselves to the main character in the story and focus on things they CAN do. We will learn about words with the long a sound. We will review ABC order.
Sight Words: went, mother, goes, around, through
Vocabulary: useless, disability, insult, astounding, boarded, fetch

We are finish our units on All About Me writing and will have a writing celebration on Friday.

This week, we will finish the unit 6 assessment. We will start unit 7, which focuses on fact families (relationships between addition and subtraction facts). We will use fact triangles and dominoes to identify fact families. We will practice more with base 10 blocks and place value.

In science we will continue with the second part of the science unit on sound and light. Students will explore light and mirrors and discuss how light can be reflected to a new position. Unfortunately, our flashlights have gone missing.  Please let us borrow a flashlight for the week if you have any at home.  They will be labeled and returned by Thursday.
