January is finally coming to an end people!!!  



Happy Valentine’s Day!  Your child has been asked to bring a special box to school to collect their valentines.  Please cover a tissue box with white paper and allow your child to decorate.  They may bring their box to school on February 11th. 

 

In reading, the students are focusing on three reading skills: retelling, comparing/contrasting, and questioning.  As your child reads their homework books, ask them to retell the story from the beginning.  They should ask questions about the story prior to reading, during and after they are done.

 

In math, we are working on number models.  We are using helper facts to solve addition problems.  It is extremely important to keep practicing math facts at home.  They need to know them!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Most students are still working on their number scroll.  It should be completed by the end of this month. 

 

We are working through an exciting Science unit on Solids and Liquids.  The classes are teaming up to learn about the properties of matter.  We will begin a unit on Habitats at the end of the month. 

 

Your child should have selected a land animal for their diorama project for the Animal Habitat Unit.  We will be sending home a guideline packet to help you with the diorama.  There is a timeline in the packet for your guidance.  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!!  This project is designed to be a family project.  They will need help.  All of the research will be done in school.  If you would like to do extra research at home, go for it.  Please direct any questions to your child’s teacher.

Merry Christmas First Grade Families!  December is here and we are hard at work.  In ELA, students are working on finding the main idea and details of non-fiction stories.  They are also working on the story elements of fiction stories. As your child reads their homework books, ask them to tell you the character, setting, problem and solution of each story.  

 

In math, we have been working through a unit on measurement.  We are continuing to work on math facts in class as this is the focus of our homework practice.   If your child is breezing through their homework, set a timer to give them some challenge.  If your child is struggling at their level, use the math fact flashcards that were given to you at the November conference as extra work.  Contact your child’s teacher if you would like another set of flashcards to be sent home. 

 

We are studying Holidays around the World in content.  We will be focusing on six different cultures and how they celebrate the season. We are focusing on the December holidays in Mexico, Israel, Russia, Italy, Germany, and the USA. 

 

The first grade team wishes your family a wonderful and relaxing break.  See you next year!!!

Welcome Back!  Brrrrrr…January is here with a chill!  Please make sure your child comes to school with a heavy winter coat, hat, and gloves.  We try to go out to recess every day if the weather cooperates. 

 

In reading, the students are continuing to focus on finding the main idea and details of non-fiction stories.  They are also still working on finding the story elements of fiction stories. As your child reads their homework books, ask them to tell you the character, setting, problem and solution of each story.  

 

In math, we are working on place value (tens, ones) and addition facts.  We will keep on testing math facts each Friday. 

 

We have begun a Social Studies unit on Needs and Wants.  We are discussing what they actually need to survive vs. what they would like to have. We will begin a Science Unit at the end of the month on Solids and Liquids. 

 

Stay Warm!!!!
