***We recently began using a new website, Raz-kids.com.    It is an excellent resource for building reading skills.  Each student works at his/her level to read books and answer comprehension questions.  They can earn stars as incentives that they can use to  build robots and rocket ships.  Please take some time to sit with your child and explore this great resource.  The children are all very excited about this!  Each child brought home a sheet with directions of how to sign on.  Please let me know if you need help!***

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

MathThis week we will finish Chapter 3, addition concepts.  Students will be tested on Tuesday, 11/21.  They should be able to add in any order, use doubles, doubles plus 1, doubles minus 1, make a 10 and add 3 numbers.  

ELA- We are continuing unit 2 this week.  We will work on realistic fiction and informational non-fiction.  Our word work will focus on digraphs. We will have our spelling test on Tuesday.    
Spelling words:

Science and Social Studies-  We are continuing our unit on Families this month.  We will learn about the different types of families and focus on our own families.  Please send in your leaf with your family pictures.  We will be creating a first grade family tree with all of our families on it!

Religion- Religion is incorporated into daily routines.  We will be focusing on the Holy Family this week.  Students will be praying multiple times throughout the day and taught a variety of prayers and songs throughout the school year.  

*Please make sure to send a snack in to school each day, and have your child wear sneakers on PE days.  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!
