Happy October 1st Grade!!
We are moving right along!! The class is working so hard.
Reading- We will be reading, "Oswald Pretends" and "Fiddlesticks" Our story works on the ng and le words. We will be associating the letters le with the "l" sound. We will also be discussing rhyming words and antonyms. Since Fiddlesticks is a fantasy we will compare and contrast reality and fantasy.
Writing- Opinion-Use a word web to give reasons as to why a certain season is their favorite. Use the web to write at least 3 sentences about their favorite season supporting why that season is their favorite.
Spelling-bubble, little, candle, pickle, do, have, show, how, me, a
I discussed with students that our le words follow the pattern- vowel, consonant, consonate, le
Math- Chapter 5- Shapes and patterns-Please keep practicing math facts at home. Addition with +6 went home today....addition and subtraction is something we practice all year.
Religion- We will be learning the different parts of the Rosary since October is the Month of the Rosary-We will also be practicing Hail, Holy Queen-our prayer for this month. If you would like to say the Rosary at home, but need help in knowing the different parts to the rosary...there are many free apps that can help you and your child.
Science-Finishing Parts of a Plant---Children must know that plants have roots, a stem, leaves and a flower. The roots help keep the plant in the ground and take in water, the stem moves the water up the plant to the leaves, the leaves make food for the plant and the flower has the seeds so more plants may grow.
Our Hunter Farms Field Trip will be on October 24th.---This is during Red Ribbon Week so we will be in red for free dress that day.
Have a great week,
