Happy New Year!
The first graders and I are having a fabulous day!
The skills that we are reviewing in Reading class are characters, setting, problem, solutions, making text to self connections and doing a variety of activities around the season of winter.
The students will be doing the performance task “My Day In History”. I will send home a copy of the task next week. It will be due on Friday, January 26thth.
The first graders will be performing experiments in February. I will assign 4 students per week. I will send home the guidelines a week before each student will present his or her experiment.
Please have your children read “Frog and Snail’s Trip”, “Drakes Tail” and “Busy As a Bee” this weekend so they are prepared for Reading class. I also would like the students to read their stories on Monday evenings, also.
I would like for each student to bring 3 or 4 books each week to read during “Drop Everything and Read” in class.
Please have your children practice the Hail Mary and Glory Be. I will assess the first graders in 4 weeks.
The first graders will be having 10 spelling words starting in a couple of weeks. I would like for the students to write 3 sentences and use 3 of their spelling words on their homework on Monday and Tuesday evenings.
The first graders need to bring a gift that they received for Christmas for “Share and Tell” on Friday.
May you have a wonderful weekend!
