This week in First Grade:
Reading-We are reading a short play called, "The Contest". We are also practicing reading words with two vowels that are together. Please keep practicing the phonics words that are in the homework folder.
Spelling- All of our words are memory words this week- would, could, some, one, new, were, straw, horse, Mrs. and eyes. "Mrs." must be capitalized and have a period to be correct.
Math- Patterns with numbers, greatest, least, fewer and more...some students are struggling with number patterns that skip a number. If you could practice number patterns at home that would be very helpful...For example: 11, 13, 15,_____, 19 and going backwards...For example: 12, 10,____, 6. We are only practicing number patterns up to the number twenty.
Religion-Being thankful and thanking God.
Social Studies-American Symbols-Students will have to recognize: American Flag, The White House, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, The Statue of Liberty, The Bald Eagle, Mount Rushmore and The Liberty Bell....busy week.
P.E. WooHoo!! We can go outside this week. We will work on catching and passing a ball.
February 20-24-No School
March 1- Ash Wednesday Mass---This is our class Mass....I will be sending home readings for your child to practice if they are randomly chosen to read.
Keep up the good work,
