Hello First Grade Families!
I feel like I have a lot to update you on for the next few weeks so let's get started!
1. Last week I sent your child home with a coupon book for our school fundraiser. If you are going to purchase the book that is great! Please send your money to school this week. If you are not going to purchase the book, please send the book back to school with your child! I will either need to collect money, or the coupon book from you!
2. The food drive has started! Please bring canned food or food items you wish to donate to school. I have a box in the classroom where I will be collecting every donated item!
3. There is no school on TUESDAY 11/11/14 in observance of Veterans Day.
Reading: Next week we will be reading an information text called Seasons. Our phonics skill will be digraphs sh and wh. Our focus skill will be cause and effect relationships.
Writing: We will be writing about our favorite season, giving reasons to back up our opinion.
Math: We will start a week long unit on Measurement. In first grade we focus on comparing lengths of different objects. We will use the key words long (er, est) and short (er, est).
Social Studies: This week we will start a unit on timelines. We will be creating a timeline as we learn the history of the United States. We will learn about The Native Americans, Christopher Columbus, The Pilgrims, The Colonists, and the Constitution.
Grammar: This week we will focus on contractions.
Have a great week!
-Miss Turco :)
