Welcome to Grade One,
Where we have monstrous fun!
Check back here often for updates about what is
happening in Class 1-2 this year!
Mark your calendars!
February 14- 100th Day of school!
February 20-24 Winter recess - School is closed
Please be sure that your child is reading each night. It is so important that they practice reading each and every day to develop the skills learned in school. Like anything else, mastery requires practice!!
Here's what we are learning in Class 1-2
Math- We will be completing Chapter 7 this week on comparing numbers. We will have our chapter test on Wednesday.
*Please be mindful of the homework pages as they will be out of sequence and towards the middle of the homework book in chapter 7. Also, please note some of the spiral review at the end of of the homework pages may be too difficult since we are skipping ahead to this chapter. Please consider these problems to be an optional challenge for your child.
ELA- This week's theme is "From Farm to Table". We will focus on nonfiction/informational text. We will also focus on opinions, contractions and making and reading charts.
Our word work will focus on /u/ words spelled -oo
The spelling words for this week are:
book, look, cook, took, hood, wood
after, buy, done, every, soon, work
Science and Social Studies- We will be continuing our science unit on animals. Students have been learning about the different classifications of animals, including, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and insects.
Religion- Religion is incorporated into daily routines. Students will be praying multiple times throughout the day and taught a variety of prayers and songs throughout the school year. We are currently focusing on God's creation and how He asked us to take care of all of His creation.
Please make sure to send a snack in to school each day. Our schedule is below. Please, also make sure your child wears sneakers on PE days.
If your child is absent, it is important that you send an absent note to school on the day he or she returns.
Please make sure to write your child's name on the tag of his/her gym sweatshirts. The students often take these off and mix them up!
