First Grade Newsletter
June 8, 2017
- Next week is the last week of school.
- Friday 16th is an early release day.
Reading: We continue to read stories about celebrations around the world.
We have begun a quick unit on fact vs. opinion. The children are also practicing sequencing a story, and summarizing stories.
Science: On Monday, our 4th grade book buddies came in and listened to The Slime that Almost Ate the School. Then, we made slime! We learned about what a stabilizer is and how it made the slime less sticky. Not to worry…I used a Borax-Free recipe.
Writing: Much of the writing that the children have done will come home over the next few days. I am astounded at how far the writing has progressed! This week we are writing short summaries of books we read together.
Math: The Unit 6 test went very well! We are now working on telling time to the 1/2 hour and recognizing 3D shapes.
Spelling: We are working on the long i (ight, igh, ie) spelling patterns. The children are sorting, rainbow writing, shaving cream writing, and playing games with these words. We will have a spelling test tomorrow, (6/9).
Call or email with any questions at all!
