Thank you to all of the students that attended Mass on Saturday!!
This week in First Grade:
Reading---"Cass Takes the Cake" and "Golly Helps" This week we will be working on adding 'er' and 'est' to the endings of words that end with a y. We have to drop the y, add an i, then add er and est. For example: hungry, hungrier, hungriest.
Spelling---say, may, play, happier, happiest, down, too, work, many, first
Writing---How-to build a snowman---revising/catching mistakes in our writing---We will also be taking our 2nd Writing Assessment on Tuesday the 12th. I will show you the results at the March Conference.
Math: Ways to Add and Subtract---When we have 7+5, try to see that we can take 3 from the 5 and add to the 7 to make 10, which changes the problem from 7+5, to 10 +2. This is difficult for some and they don't like it, but others choose this form of addition. We also started timed tests. The students have two minutes to complete 13 problems. We start with +0.
Religion: Jesus Teaches Us About Forgiveness
Science---Weather, wind, condensation, evaporation---what the weather looks/feels like during each season
Art---Valentines Day Art
This week we will have a Valentine's Day party at 1:45. Students may bring cards for their classmates. We have 28 students total. It makes things run smoothly if you only have your child sign their name. Writing every student's name on each card makes passing out very difficult.
Have a great week and enjoy your week off next week!!!
