Feb 21 at 9:30: FIRST GRADE MUSIC PROGRAM PRESENTATION.
Feb 23: All Box Tops due to the Library
This is what’s going on in First Grade this week.:
Library is Wednesday.
Our focus for this week are the vowel digraphs ai and ay: The -ai is never at the end of a word: brain. The -ay is at the end of a word or a syllable: way or maybe. We will only focus on -ay words where -ay is at the end of a word (way) and not at the end of a syllable (maybe).
The Sight Word Assessment is on Thursday and will be for these words: THEN DON'T USE HAS
Our first grade readers will focus on deepening their understanding of fiction and nonfiction. They will examine the author's purpose as it relates to these genres and will reflect on how a reader approaches each type of text. They will also work on explaining what the main idea is in texts.
Students will focus on skip counting from by 2s, 5s, and 10s. They must be able to do so by starting at any number and then skip count. For example: 3, 5, 7, 9. We typically like to start skip counting by 2's on an even number, but we will practice mixing it up. We focus on numbers 1-120. They will also continue to focus on counting 1 to 120 forward and backward starting at any number. Please practice with them at home. There is a 120 chart in their Daily Folder that they can use as a resource.
