Announcements

Happy new year!  I hope you all had a relaxing Christmas break.

After a long break, we will spend some time this week reviewing our first grade rules and expectations.  We will read the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today?, and talk about being bucket fillers by being kind, sharing, helping others, etc.  We read this book together in September, and I am excited to revisit it now that some time has passed.  I encourage you to ask your child what he/she will do in 2022 to be a bucket filler!

In Fundations we are starting unit 7.  This is a three week unit!  Our unit trick words are listed above, and I encourage you to practice reading and writing them at home.  This week, we will focus on the glued sounds “ang”, “ing”, “ung”, and “ong”.  We will practice reading and writing words such as sang, bang, long, king, wing, etc.  

In Wit and Wisdom we are reading the book Me… Jane.  This is a story about Jane Goodall as a child.  We will pay close attention to the details of the book to determine important parts of the story, and will learn new vocabulary.  We will also be working on informative paragraphs, which include a topic sentence, detail sentences, and a conclusion sentence.

In math we are learning about the relationship between addition and subtraction.  We are learning that an addition sentence can help us solve a subtraction problem, and a subtraction sentence can help us solve an addition problem.  

In religion we will be talking about the sacraments and the saints.  A saints project will be sent home this week, and will be due at the end of January!  Students will get a sheet with directions in their folders before Friday.

In science we are continuing to learn about animals.  We will have a science test late next week or early the following week.  I will send home a study guide at the end of this week or the beginning of the next once I have a better idea of our schedule.

Please reach out with any questions!  Have a wonderful week!!

Miss Loughlin

Announcements

Hello 1C families,

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  I am looking forward to a fun week of learning in first grade.

This week in ELA we are starting module 2 of Wit and Wisdom.  The theme of this module is creature features and our essential question is: what can we discover about animals’ unique features?  We will be reading two fables, “The Ants and the Grasshopper” and “The Hare and the Tortoise”.  We will also start learning how to write paragraphs.  

In Fundations we will review unit five and take our unit five test on Thursday.  We will also begin unit six.  In unit six we will write short vowel words and add the suffix “s.” Examples are bugs and chills.

In religion we will be talking about Advent and how we can prepare for Jesus’ birth!  

In math we are working on subtraction strategies.  We will learn how addition can help us solve subtraction problems.  Please work on identifying numbers and counting forward and backward at home.

In science we will focus on animals.  We will learn what makes animals similar and different from one another by describing animal features.  

Have a great week!

In ELA Wit & Wisdom we continue in module 1. Our focusing text will be My Librarian is a Camel.  You can view tips for families here: parenttipmodule1. We are focusing also on identifying story parts, such as characters, setting, problem, and resolution. Our grammar focus is on identifying verbs, using suffixes -ed/-ing to indicate past and present tense, and identifying proper nouns. We also explore what a complete sentence looks and sounds like.

In Fundations, we will finish up unit 2. Unit 2 will focus on blending and reading cvc (consonant-vowel-consonant) words ie: nap, big, map, and reading trick words from K fluently and from memory. Please practice with your child at home. Trick words to focus on for fundations unit 2 test are: his, and, a, is, the. Unit 2 Fundations test will be on Friday 10/15. The test will require the children to write down sounds they hear, simple cvc words ( ie: rob, mud ) and write two simple sentences with trick words and cvc words.

In Math, our focus in chapter 2 is on basic subtraction. We will review key vocabulary words: minus, compare, fewer, difference, more, subtract, take away, left, and subtraction sentence/equation. Practice counting forward and backward to build fluency and to help your child with addition and subtraction. We will be finishing up chapter 2 early next week so a test later next week will follow. We will also have sporadic math quizzes on both addition and subtraction facts. Practice doubles facts at home as well.

In Religion, we will continue unit 1, our essential question will be: What do we believe? We will begin lesson 4 this week.

In Social Studies, we will use a variety of resources but one main resource will be Scholastic News. This month the focus will be on our classroom learning community. You have access to scholastic at home as well. Go to https://sn1.scholastic.com/ Our classroom password is: fastred9475

We have explored what it is to be a class and school community. Look for a simple study guide on the topic of communities, as we will have a social studies test on that topic soon.

In Science, we will explore what it means to be scientists and ask questions. We will talk about the scientific method of proposing a question, a possible outcome, and experimenting to find those answers.

The I Ready diagnostic is complete. Your child will now work on MyPath, which is specifically designed to meet their needs in reading and math. Each week the children will work for a designated time on reading and math skills.

Have a great week,

Miss Loughlin

Announcements

In ELA, we are continuing module one.  We are studying the power of books and libraries around the world. Some people have climbed mountains just to find books. Others have trekked to libraries on boats or even on elephants. In this module, we will ask the question: How do books—and the knowledge they bring—change lives around the world?  We are learning to identify the parts of a story, including the characters, setting, problem, and solution.  Our grammar focus is on common and proper nouns.

In Fundations, we will finish up unit one. We are reviewing the sounds, letters, and digraphs from Kindergarten. Please continue to review all K level trick words.  Our K trick words quiz is on Tuesday, and the format is identical to the practice quiz that was sent home last week.  Our unit 1 test is on Friday.  Students will write all lowercase letters and will be asked to write the letter that corresponds with a given sound.

In math we are wrapping up chapter one and will have our first test on Wednesday. Please use the practice test that comes home on Monday to review and study.  At the end of this week we will begin subtraction.  We will use pictures to show “taking from” and find differences.

In religion, we are wrapping up unit one.  We have learned that everything God made is good, and are learning to value God as our creator.  Our first religion test will be Friday.  Use your study guide to review.  

In social studies, we are continuing to learn about communities and we are discussing what it means to be a good friend.  We are learning the responsibilities we have as members of a classroom community, parish community, and family.  

In science, we are learning the steps to the scientific method.  We are also discussing the changes we will notice now that summer is over and fall has begun.

We are finishing up I-Ready testing this week.  Please make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast and gets a good night’s sleep.  Please remind your child to not rush and do his/her best work.

Have a great week!!!
