Week of January 22 - 28

Week of January 22- 28

This week we are comparing and contrasting characters and books. We will be working with The Thre Little Pigs, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, Click Clask Moo, Cows That Type, Duck on a Bike, and Piggie and Elephant: My Friend is Sad.

For writing we are working Opinion writing this 9 weeks. A way that you can help at home is by having your child share their opinion about the books they read with you and even discussing their favorite character.

In math we are starting to work on adding and subtracting with two digit numbers. This week we are working with adding and subtracting a single digit and a double digit number together with out regrouping.

Thank you for all the hard work you put in at home.

Where do we live?

We have been working on learning he 7 continents. One way that we do this is by singing the Continent Song by Dr. Jean. (You can find the song on YouTube.) 

While we are working on meeting this standard at school. Please be working with your child on what city, state, and country they live in. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Beginning Quarter 3

We have had a wonderful first have of the year!  I am looking forward to see what the second half of this year will hold for all my students. We still have so much to learn!!!

As we begin the 3rd quarter I want to encourage parents to be reading and talking with your students each night. This will help your children grow in their reading abilities. There are lots of questions that you can ask your first grader before, during, and after reading books. (ex. What do you think this story will be about? Who is the main character of the story? Where does the story take place? What is the problem in the story and how do you think it will be solved? What is the main idea of the story?) These questions will really help the children to begin thinking about what they are reading. 

Also... don't forget to visit your local library with your child! This way they will have lots of books to choose from each night to read
