FIRST GRADE!! 

 

 We are doing our best to return to our usual schedule and routine after break and our snow days! Here's what we're focusing on now:

Reading & Phonics: Unit 3 in our reading series with a focus on changes. We'll review plot, fact and opinion, inferencing, and more. We're learning about y as a vowel, and unit 3 will also bring those tricky  r-controlled vowels (ar, ir, er, ur) in addition to ng/nk endings.   

Math: A quick unit on different kinds of graphs and collecting data using tally marks. We will work on this unit only for about 2 weeks. 

Writing: We are still working on how-to writing.

Religion: Chapter 8 about giving thanks to God.

Soc Studies: The life of Dr. Martin Luther King and the movement he started. He's our first biography, so we are also studying what makes a biography.

Spanish: colors, numbers, classroom supplies.
