1st grade is moving on along and we are in our 12th week of school! We have learned so much!
Over the next couple of weeks the 1st grade classes will be preparing for a Thanksgiving Readers’ Theater. I am sending home the note about the event and your child’s specific speaking part. We need your child to learn their part and be able to read it fluently and with expression. It will not have to be memorized but it will need to be practiced at home. They will need to be able to read it with projection (slowly and loudly).
This will be performed in front of our classroom family and friends on November 18th at 11:30 in our classroom.
If for some reason your child will not be able to participate, please let me know ASAP so their part can be given to someone else to perform. Please practice the parts being sent home every night to make an amazing performance
Spelling words:but, what, all, were, when
Guided reading will continue:Read the book and Thanksgiving part at home each night.
Phonics- Plurals. Adding -s, -es,-ies to the end of words to make the words plural (more than one)
We are interactively writing stories along with using skills and all that we have learned in independent writing.
Math: Subtraction strategies and word problems.
Science: Planting seeds and watching and logging information.
Social Studies: America Symbols and significance of each.
We have a food drive all week, and we WANT TO WIN!! Please send something if you can so we can help our community during the time of year.
Please mark your calendars for our performance on the 18th at 11:30.
I am so very thankful for your children as well as YOU!
