Some updates about the week of 3/13/17
The CoGats are all done! The first graders did a great job on their first real TEST! Thank you everyone for having them prepared and on time for school. When we receive their scores they will be sent home to all of you.
Looks like there might be some "weather on Tuesday" Please stay safe and warm if I do not see 21 smiling faces on Tuesday.
We have gotten back a bunch of our Flat Stanely so far and are still waiting on a few. The kids are really enjoying hearing about all his travels.
Math test is scheduled for Tuesday. If we are not in school on Tuesday it will be whichever day we return to school.
Wednesday is also "Community Helper Day" We are looking forward to a few of our first grade community helper parents to tell us about their jobs and how they serve our community.
Please make sure to sign up for your report card conference online. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on March 23rd.
*Spelling test will be on Friday
Reading: We will read the fictional text "Little Rabbits Tale"
Phonics: We will be talking about the difference in long e and short e sounds.
Math: We will review for the chapter 6 test on Monday and take our test on Tuesday (or Wednesday, or Thursday:) We will begin chapter 7 the day after we are able to take out test.m
**It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO CONTINUE PRACTICING OUR Addition FACTS AT HOME. It seems first graders are not as quick to answer facts as they were before the Christmas break. Please help them by reviewing their friends of 10 facts as well as doubles, doubles plus 1 and doubles minus 1 facts***
We will continue our communities unit by talking about places in our community. We will have a visit from some community helpers on Wednesday. We will also be creating some 3d models of places in our community.
