The first graders started Unit 6 in math this last week.  They learned about name collection boxes on Friday.  The above picture is an example of one of the name collection boxes that we did in class.  The first graders will have math homework this week, so please check their folders.

Your child will be bringing home a "Refrigerator Copy" of what our focus will be for literacy next week.  It does not need to be returned to school.  Please look for this on Mondays in your child's folder.

In grammar, last week the first graders learned about prepositional phrases.  They did a variety of activities to identify them in sentences.  What is the prepositional phrase?
The chair is under the desk.

The first graders will continue to have reading homework that is given out on Mondays and then returned by Friday.  The homework has a new look.  The homework would be a great thing to do with your child.  They can read it to you or you can read the story to them.  
  • Spelling Test over lesson 21 words will be on Friday.
  • Reading homework is due on Friday.
  • The related arts schedule has changed because of the snow day that we had.  Next week's schedule will be Monday-Library, Tuesday-Music, Wednesday-Art, Thursday-Library.
  • Bookflix and MyOn are 2 great websites that your child can use at home to get their reading minutes in.  
MyOn      The username is first name.last name and the password is read.
