February News:

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Your child has been asked to bring a special box to school to collect their valentines.  Please cover a tissue box with white paper and allow your child to decorate.  They may bring their box to school starting on February 6th

 

In reading, the students are focusing on three reading skills: retelling, comparing/contrasting, and questioning.  As your child reads their homework books, ask them to retell the story from the beginning.  They should ask questions about the story prior to reading, during and after they are done.

 

In math, we are working on number models.  We are using helper facts to solve addition problems.  It is extremely important to keep practicing math facts at home.  They need to know them!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Most students are still working on their number scroll.  It should be completed by the end of this month. 

 

 

Important Dates to REMEMBER: 
Friday, February 10th- Valentine's Day Party
Monday, February 20th- No School
Tuesday, February 21st- 2 Hour Delay

Happy Fall!!!  We are working so hard in our new reading curriculum called Wonders.  The students have been reading fiction and non-fiction stories, searching for key details, and writing responses to prompts.  They are reading and writing their high frequency words and practicing patterned words for their spelling lists. 

 

In math, the students have been manipulating their number grids to solve word problems and number models.  We will be working through Unit 3 this month.  Unit 3 will focus more on addition and subtraction strategies.  The students will be playing the following games: Domino Top-It, Roll and Total, High Roller, Penny-Dice, Bunny Hop, Rolling for 50 and Penny Plate. 

 

We will be focusing on Social Studies during the content block of the day.  We will begin the month by discussing Fire Safety with the students.  This will include a fire drill with a sweet treat for the students.  We will begin our Map Skills unit in the middle of the month.  The students will be working through a Map Skills workbook focusing on map symbols and main directions.  We will end the month by preparing for an election of our first grade mascot.  We will take a look at three literary characters and discuss the characteristics of each character.  We will hold a mock election on November 8th to elect our mascot. 

 

We will be having our fall field trip this month.  Please make sure you signed and returned the permission slip for the Renfrew Trip!
