Friday News for the week of January 29- February 2

Happy Friday!

This Week:

Reading: Retelling - This is a hard one first graders, especially for students whom English is not a first language. This week we read several easy to follow stories then RETOLD it to a partner. When retelling, it’s a good idea to tell the characters, setting, what happened in the beginning, middle, and end. We practiced a lot this week and we will keep practicing! Please ask your children about what they are reading so they can RETELL it to you! :)

Math: We are cruising through place value! We learned how to figure out 10 more or 10 less. This week we also did a lesson on the US money of dimes and nickels. We played a fun game with play money where the students exchanged pennies to nickels and then to dimes. The students are all doing great and working hard.

Bible: This week we learned the neat story of Ruth. It’s amazing how God used a foreigner from Moab to be a part of Jesus’ family!

Writing - This week we started writing POEMS! So far we wrote color poems, I remember poems, and subject poems. The students are enjoying it and they are super creative! I’m excited to write more next week!

Next Week:
Spelling Words: boys boxes tent late rain may came boat hope told coat like time find kind seed meet meat weak week
