Reading Workshop
In Reading, we explored our first grade library and learned how to take care of our books.  We also learned how to display what a good reading workshop looks like and sounds like.  Last, we worked on building our stamina when reading independently.

Writing Workshop
In writing, we explored and discussed things we love and made a map of our hearts to begin our Small Moment Unit.

Math Workshop
We took a math assessment to determine which math concepts we are familiar with.  We also explored our math manipulatives.

Community Study
​We decided to take this time to enjoy the nice weather and play outside.  We will start our Invention Study next week.

Word Study
This week we learned the "ch" sound.  We read a poem called "The Search" and highlighted all the ch words.

Snack and Birthdays
To help keep germs away, I would like to have snack individualized for the students.  For example, if you purchase a big box of goldfish the goldfish must be placed into 20 zip lock bags for each student to have.

First Grade will longer celebrate birthdays with "cake."  If you would like to celebrate your child's birthday, please donate a book to our library.  A family member may also want to read a story to the class in honor of the student's birthday.  Please email your teacher to set up a date.



First grade is accepting any child friendly magazines!  Please bring any magazines you are willing to donate in with your child.
Thank you!
