Week Of January 14th

Posted on Jan 14, 2019

Math- We continue to use extra math to practice our math facts.  We will be starting Mad Minute 3x a week.  It is another way for them to challenge themselves to increase their math facts as the weeks go on.  We talked about, it is a challenge for yourself, not a race against the class. 

Silent Reading- “A Good Fit Book”  We have been focusing on picking a “Good Fit Book” & reading it daily for 5-6 minutes during Silent Reading.  I am so proud of the independent readers they are becoming.  I have noticed some children cannot keep their nose out of their book.  This is awesome!! The more they read the more they know.  Reading & Writing do go hand and hand!!

Our field trip to the Children’s Farm was FUN!  It seemed all the children had fun.  We learned about many different farm animals. Had the opportunity to pet and hold them.  End with a fun hayride and pick your pumpkins.  Thank you to all the parents, who came along to chaperone.

Halloween:  An email was sent home with information regarding our Halloween Party. 

Math, Sight word, & Spelling Test from last week will be sent home this Wednesday:  The Math test we did together.  This chapter had  challenging concepts that we covered and worked on together.  While taking the test, I did  project it on the board so we can do it step by step together.  The importance is mastering the concept and skill.  Therefore, I read the test and reworded where needed .   

EXTRA MATH:  Everyone received their pin numbers.  This is an extra app on your tablet or website for extra practice to master their addition facts.  When they complete their addition facts, a report is sent to me.  They will receive a certificate and move onto subtraction.  If you would like to practice at home or looking for different programs to master their addition facts this is a website they can do.  I do try to do it once a week in class on the ipads.

What another fun week in 1st grade.  We worked really hard to make Wise Choices.  We worked extra hard on waiting our turn to talk & talking over others.  We earned an extra recess on Friday by everyone getting on purple Thursday.  The Pep Rally was super fun!!

Please remember to send in your child’s permission slip and money for the farm field trip.

We have been really focusing on reading and writing.  We continue to work on the Daily 5.  We have also been word doctors by picking apart short vowel words to understand the CVC rule.  We made a sentence buddy.  We have been practicing journaling.  Journaling is anything that comes to mind.  I want them to just express their thoughts and ideas on paper.  Do not worry about the spelling or neatness yet.  In a few weeks, we will start working on editing our work with a sloppy copy, editing and into a final copy.  Slowly, step by step, we will work on these skills.

Meet the Teacher

Posted on Sep 07, 2018

Hi! My Name is Mrs. Judy Vittori. I live in Orland Park with my husband Chris, 4 children ( 2 girls & 2 boys) & our dog. I enjoy being with family & friends. I will be your child’s 1st grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year! This is my second year back as a First grade teacher.  I taught Kindergarten here from 2000-2004.  From 2004-2007, I taught Kindergarten at District 96 in Riverside.  I decided to stay home with my children in 2007.  Over the years, I volunteered as a CCD Teacher and substitute.  I am excited to be back in the classroom and make this another fantastic year at SJF!!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!
