Happy Fall!!!  We are working so hard in Wonders reading curriculum.  The students have been reading fiction and non-fiction stories, searching for key details, and writing responses to prompts.  They are reading and writing their high frequency words and practicing patterned words for their spelling lists.  Check out this website for a fun, free way to practice the weekly spelling words!  https://www.spellingcity.com/FairviewGrade1/

 

In math, the students have been manipulating their number grids to solve word problems and number models.  We will be working through Unit 3 this month.  Unit 3 will focus more on addition and subtraction strategies.  The students will be playing the following games: Domino Top-It, Roll and Total, High Roller, Penny-Dice, Bunny Hop, Rolling for 50 and Penny Plate. 

 

We will be focusing on Social Studies during the content block of the day.  We will begin the month by discussing Fire Safety with the students.  This will include a fire drill with a sweet treat for the students.  We will begin our Map Skills unit in the middle of the month.  The students will be working through a Map Skills workbook focusing on map symbols and main directions.  We will end the month by preparing for an election of our first grade mascot.  We will take a look at three literary characters and discuss the characteristics of each character.  We will hold a mock election on November 6th to elect our mascot.  

 

As parents, you are the driving force in your child’s life and in their education.  Together, we can make this year a fabulous one, full of learning and growth for your child!  Welcome to an exciting school year!
