FIRST GRADE!! 

Math: We are working from our math work books. Typically the pages we're doing for the week are made into a packet that we work on throughout the week. We are wrapping up chapter one, which discussed numbers in order, correct number formation, and ordinal numbers. The children also work on daily review math journals and assorted other activities during the week, such as word problem skills, buddy games, and independent math practice.

Reading & Phonics: Using our reading books and other picture books, we're reading all kinds of stories and reviewing characters, setting and plot. The children learned assorted activities to practice phonics and other skills during our reading "workboard" time. We continue to practice selected phonics skills during the week (see weekly hw newsletter sent home on Friday) and also reviewing previously learned skills.

Writing: We are working on stories about us called personal narratives.

Handwriting: We are reviewing the foundational skills before diving into individual letter practice.

Religion: Chapter one went home on Friday, and it was all about following Jesus. The children made some sheep to show they follow Jesus, "The Good Shepard". Next week we look at chapter 2, all about our church.

Science/SS: Apples & Johnny Appleseed

Spanish: We will begin this week with review of numbers 1-10.
