November 19, 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


We didn't do phonics today.  Instead, we were learning a new writing program we are experimenting with.  I think the children have made so much progress with their reading that it is time to get more serious out their writing.

Reading Groups:

Group A:     Shut the Gate       I Work at Night

Group B:     Looking at Flowers      Making a Picture

Group C:     Working with Dad      People Who Save Animals


We are working on another difficult concept.  It states that it is sometimes helpful to make a ten when we subtract.  

Word Play:

Here are some of the words we discussed during our word play.

We compared the add of addition to the ad of advertisement.  We talked about the word seep and how water seeps through the ground.  This seeping water makes the sources of water for the wells in our community.  It also creates stelagtites and stalagmites in caves.  We also compared escape and excape (as many people say it incorrectly).  I had the children practice saying escape a few times together.
