On Friday, we read a story about Dr. Martin Luther King.  We then discussed our Goals and Dreams for 2019.

 

Spelling:  Starting this week, Spelling words have increased from 6 to 10 spelling words they will be tested on.  We practice printing and reviewing our list daily throughout the week.  We practice printing them 3x each, in spelling sentences, on dry erase boards, in the writing center by stamping them or using magnetic letters to spell them and playing sparkle or a spelling bee.

Reading:  We begin a new Unit this week.   One of the concepts that will be  Introduced is ABC Order, words end with “ED” & magic e Long A.  We will be working together on ABC Order the next couple of weeks.

Also, a homework sheet will be handed out on Mondays. Please have your child complete the assignment.  It will be Due on Thursdays.  They will have a few days to complete the sheet if needed. 

Math- We continue to use extra math to practice our math facts.  Each day that we did mad minute math, I did notice an improvement with the students recalling their math facts.  This 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.

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.

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!!
