September News:

We are hard at work in first grade.  The students have been reviewing alphabet letters, letter sounds, and high frequency words from kindergarten.  There will be three weeks of review and then we will begin Unit 1.  Please look for the pink “A Peek At Our Week” newsletter coming home on Friday or Monday of every week.  This will have the focus skills for reading and the spelling list for the week. 

In math, we are focusing on comparing numbers and using the number line.  We have played games called Top-It, Penny-Dice, Monster Squeeze, and Bunny Hop. 

Our content focus for the month is Science.  We just began a unit on living and non-living things.  The students will be performing a lab experiment involving meal worms and will record their behaviors they observe.   We will also take a look at plant heredity and animal parents and their offspring this month.

We will be having our fall field trip this month.  Please make sure you signed and returned the permission slip for the Renfrew Trip!
