Dear 1B Families,
This week we focused on retelling the story by using our story element words of characters, setting, problem, and solution. We are also reviewed making predictions. Our letters and sounds we focused on this week were: p, i, and k. In our vocabulary journals, this week we learned about initial sounds/beginning sounds, ending sounds, and when we use capital letters in our writing. In math, we worked on addition skills and learned a new math game. On Friday we took our developmental scientist test and the students did a wonderful job with these concepts. In Religion, we are focusing on the Hail Mary prayer in honor of Mary. I encourage you to pray the Hail Mary with your family this month.
The first graders worked hard on their first MAP Test this week, next week we are taking the Math MAP Test.
On Tuesday, October 8, we will take the Math MAP Test. Please make sure your child has a good breakfast on these mornings and gets a good night rest before.
Homework packets went home on Monday, September 30. Please support your child with their homework. The packet is due at the end of the month. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thursday, October 17 from 5:30-6:30 is Math Night. Please bring your family to this fun event. There will be math games and activities your child can teach you.
Your child should be taking home a new orange, October, behavior calendar each night. This calendar needs to be returned each day. Thanks
Mrs. Heidi Harris
