I hope you all had a great three day weekend!!!
Busy week in 1st Grade!!
Thanksgiving Program-Wednesday Night-Please wear your Sunday best to the program.
We are also in charge of the centerpieces for the tables, they are cute turkeys.
We will also have a little snack on the 16th with the Kindergarteners...Thank you to our room parents for making this so fun!
Reading- "Ettabetta is Seven" and "Toc's Chicken Pox" We are working on main idea and details. We will also read, "The Great Turkey Race" and talk about the parts of a story (Characters, setting, problem and solution).
Spelling- game, same, ride, side, said, only, you, out, of, here
This week we are learning about the silent 'e' on the end of words. The silent 'e' makes the vowel say its name or pronounce the long vowel sound.
Grammar-practicing adding 'ed' at the end of words and learning how to use the suffixes 'ness' and 'less'. For example-sickness, helpless
Math-Practicing ways to subtract
Religion- We are Thankful
If you have any questions please let me know.
Have a great week,
This week in First Grade!!!
Reading- "When the Superkids Pretend" and "The Foolish Giant" We will be focusing on the headings in an informational story about lost things...and then figure out the main idea and two details of the story. We are also starting the long vowel sounds this week.
Writing- Finishing our books about our field trip to Hunter Farms and a descriptive story.
Spelling Words- go, no, so, be, he, me, she, we, hi, flu
