Paper flyers were sent home Thursday. All books ship to the class, and I hand them out to the kids to take home. Thank you for encouraging the love of reading!
Star of the Day – Four new friends were Star of the Day this week- Ryan, Abbey, Violet, and Connor. Each got to be the line leader and sit at the teacher desk!
Quote of the Week – This week’s quote went to Anastasia. She worked really hard on her listening skills and trying to improve them this week.
First Grade Family Time – At the assembly, we celebrated our learning, give awards for the quote of the week, along with awards for lost teeth, shoe-tying, & birthdays from the week. Here are our “award-winning” first-graders from today’s family time.
Reading– We got our reading partners and book nook spots this week. We also started learning about how readers create good habits like taking a sneak peek and what to do when we get to the end of a book.
Writing – We started writing small moment stories. We planned them out by thinking of ideas, touching the page, saying our ideas out loud, and then sketching pictures to help us remember what we want to write.
Math – We continued to work on identifying number partners (pairs) for numbers 1-10. We even did chalk math outside!
Social & Emotional – Little Penguin joined our class this week and we worked on some different breathing exercises like pizza breathing and star breathing.
Word Study – Rasheed the Lion joined our class too! We all looked at our names and pointed out what we noticed, syllables, vowels, blends, digraphs and the different sounds all the letters can make. We went on a word hunt around the class to notice words and letters.
