Friday News for Week of August 24-28

We had a fantastic 2nd week of first grade!

The students are getting more used to school every day and are figuring out the procedures and what to do. We practiced a lot more this week and are ready to jump into learning.

This week:

Reading: We learned all about Read to Self. We made an I-chart with what we need to do, as well as added hand gestures. Then - we started building stamina. Some days we did more than other days but as for today, we were able to do 12 minutes of Read to Self. Great job students!

Look at them Reading so well!!

We also learned some important reading strategies such as Check for Understanding, Back up and Reread, and Cross Checking.

Math: We learned what it means to work with a partner while playing a math game. We used our number lines on our desk to play a game with dice and a straw. We also used our whiteboards to answer some math questions. Today we used number cards to play Top It and worked on One more and One less of a number.

Students enjoyed some time on their whiteboard after the lesson!

Bible: We started with the very first story in the Bible: Creation! It was amazing to think that God created everything with only his word “Let there be light.” God is amazing!

Other Classroom Decorations:

Next Week:

Next week will be the first set of Spelling Words and Bible Memory Verse. Monday-Thursday there will be spelling homework and on Friday we will have a Spelling Test! Same for Bible Memory. Please practice it all week and there will be a test, either oral or written on Fridays.
