September 13, 2013

See what we're learning.
Talk and share with your child about the day.
Review and give extra help and practice if needed.



Today in First Grade

Phonics:  

We worked on sentences again.  We are trying to understand what a sentence is and to use a capital letter at the first and a punctuation at the end.  So we had a lesson on the different ending punctuations.  We talked about periods for statements, question marks for something that needs an answer, and exclamation marks for things that are emotional or exciting.  We practiced guessing if sentences that teacher said were statements or a questions.  Then we practiced writing a few small sentences.


Reading Groups:

Group A:       I'm Brave     Living and Nonliving

Group B:      The Migration      Our Heroes

Group C:    Too Busy       Hamburger       Meet My Family

Math:

I don't have a lesson to share about math today.  We are coming to the end of our unit on learning addition.  The students did work by themselves to see if they knew how to do what we have tried to  learn.   Next week we will start a unit on subtraction.

Library , PE, and Drama today.

We had our end of the week spelling test on this week's 8 words.  Here are the results.  I have written, beside the word, the number of children that missed that word.   (There are 20 in the class.)  It also shows next weeks words.  (We practiced these words 4 times in class.)


The children are supposed to be bringing home their spelling papers and showing you the words they miss each time.  (Hopefully your child is bringing home a paper each week showing they are getting their spelling words all correct!)


Have you been helping your child learn their 0 math facts.  They should be really easy.  They only get harder from here.  Practice them in the car going to Cedar, helping them in the bathtub, cleaning their bedrooms, folding laundry, to earn a prize such as their TV time or desert.  Next week we will begin our 1 addition math facts.  (0+1, 1+1, 2+1, 3+1, 4+1, 5+1, 6+1,7+1, 8+1, 9+1, 10+1, 11+1, 12+1)  If they learn the easy ones well, it will help them when we get to the hard ones.
