FIRST GRADE!! 

 

Math: We continue to work from our math workbooks. This week, we will work on doubles+1 and adding 3 numbers. We continue to review part/part/whole and missing parts of numbers. The children also work on daily review math journals and assorted other activities during the week, such as word problem skills, buddy games, and independent math practice.

Reading & Phonics: We begin reading unit 2 on Monday. Unit 2 will bring many new phonics skills, including digraphs and "sneaky e" at the end of words. We continue to practice our high frequency words and other skills to help our reading skills develop. I read aloud to the children daily, sometimes multiple times throughout the day. The children continue to work on "workboard" activities during the week while I pull small groups for direct reading instruction. We also practice our letter sounds by "making words" with different groups of letters. 

Writing: We are working on stories about us called personal narratives. The children also write in their green writing journals multiple times per week.

Handwriting: We will typically work on one specific letter each week. Look for the paper in your child's folder on Thursday's. The children also get handwriting practice daily in their writing journals or during workboard. 

Religion: We will spend this week working on a "unit 1 review" of chapters 1-4.

Science/SS: Finish bats, begin the First Thanksgiving.

Spanish: Basics such as numbers, colors, shapes, and general phrases
