I hope you all had a great weekend! Please read on to find out what class 1-2 will be doing this week…

Reading & Writing: This week we are continuing with our unit about Plant and Animal Adaptations. Students will begin the week by learning about the word: Adaptation! Plants and animals can have many physical or behavioral adaptations.

Today students learned about cactus plants. These plants can do some amazing things to survive! They can store gallons of water in their stems which can help them in the dry desert. They also have thorns (spines) to help protect themselves from being eaten by animals.

Math: This week in math we are starting with Chapter 12~Measurement! Students will be exploring words like longest, longer, shortest, shorter, and length. This is a short chapter and towards the end of the week we will jump into Chapter 13-Time and Money.

Religion: This week we will be talking about the Holy Family. Students will also identify ways that they share God’s love with their families. We can share God’s love when we are helpful and kind.

Reminders & Announcements:

  1. Scholastic Book Orders Due May 31st.
  2. Gala Activity on Thursday after school

(only if you signed your child up)

I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend! Please continue reading to learn what class 1-2 will be doing this week…

Reading & Writing: This week we will continue with our plant and animal adaptations unit. This morning, students looked at various plants that make adaptations to survive in their environment. For example, a cactus has a thick stem so that it can hold water longer in the dry desert. A Venus fly trap can snatch insects and digest them to get nutrients. We will also take a closer look at the life cycle of a plant!

Phonics: Our spelling focus this week is “oi” and “oy”. You can find these sounds in words like coin and boy. Students are starting to realize that if I hear the “oy/oi” sound at the end of the word I use “oy” and if I hear it in the middle of the word I use the letters “oi”. There will be a spelling test on Friday.

Math: This week we will finish chapter 11. Study guides will go home on Tuesday. There will be a test on Thursday.  Please review with your child all the strategies for subtraction.

Announcements & Reminders:

  • In the classroom, we use the Epic app to read books. You may access at home using our class code ily8803

Happy Monday ~ I hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day! We appreciate all that you do!Please continue reading to learn what class 1-2 will be doing this week…

Reading & Writing: This week we are starting with our new unit about Plant and Animal Adaptations. Plants will be introduced by reading many nonfiction texts to determine the lifecycle of a plant. During this unit students will be learning about the many adaptations that plants and animals use to survive in their environments. We will start our unit by reading Eric Carle’s “The Tiny Seed”.

Phonics: Our spelling focus this week is “oo” spelling pattern. This pattern makes two different sounds. One sound is what we hear when we say “book” and another sound is what we hear when we say “moon”. We are learning how to know the difference when spelling words with these similar sounds. Our formal assessment will be Friday so please review each night!

Math: This week we will begin Chapter 11: Use models and strategies to subtract tens. Students will practice subtracting tens, using a hundred chart to subtract, and thinking addition to help subtract.

Announcements & Reminders:

  • Scholastic Book Orders due by May 15th
  • Gala Community Day (First Grade May 27thInformation went home on Friday
  • Spelling test on Friday

Weekly Letter May 3rd

Posted on May 3, 2021

I hope you all had a great weekend! Please read on to find out what class 1-2 will be doing this week…

Reading & Writing: This week students will be looking at what a sensory poem is. Sensory poems are an excellent way to encourage children to experiment with using words to describe their senses, and in doing so bring their writing to life for others. Students will write what they might see, taste, smell, hear, and feel during their favorite season.

Spelling: Students this week are learning about “ou” words that make the “ow” sound just like the words we learned last week. During our word work activities, we will be sorting words based on the letters that the word has. For example, the words flower and our, make the same sound, but have different letter patterns in the middle. This skill will take some time to understand.

Math: Today we completed the final lesson in chapter 10, which had students practice adding two digit numbers. Tomorrow we will complete the study guide and send it home in green folders. We will have a chapter test on Thursday.

Religion: This week students will be continuing with lesson 9. We will explore what is means to sin and the idea of forgiveness. Students will also learn about the sacraments Penance and Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick.

Reminders & Announcements:

  • Math Test on Thursday
  • Spelling Test on Friday
  • Friday 5/7~Half Day 11:45 dismissal
