Hello students and families! Please look through this website carefully as it is full of important information. We will update the website weekly to keep you informed  about what is going on in our classroom. We look forward to working with you and making your child’s first grade experience a positive, busy and memorable one!


This Week's Homework:

Phonics:
  • We will be learning about long "u" words. You can practice with your child by having them look for words with long "u" words in texts and books you read together. You can also have your child practice making words with long "u". For example, you could say "mule" and ask your child to make/write/build the word. Encourage them to use a letter for every sound they hear! 
  • You can also review long "o", "a" and "i" words. Ask your child to make/write words with a silent e at the end. 

Sight Words:
  • Keep practicing your child's sight words. They will be tested every 2 weeks! 
Reading:
  • Reading Logs will be due Monday, December 11th
    • You can use the books in your child's reading bag, sight words, books you have at home, books you get from the library or any text you and your child read together for the reading log.
    • Please have your child read 20 minutes a day.
Math
  • Have your child continue to practice their math facts! This will help build their math fact fluency, which they are assessed on through gumball math.
  • Utilizing online programs such as Xtra Math and Prodigy will help build math fact fluency, as well as reinforce concepts and skills that are taught in class. 
  • Math homework will be sent home as needed to help reinforce concepts taught in class.
Language Arts:
  • You can help your child apply what they are learning about sentences in class while they are at home! You can have them write about what they do each day, or what they did over their Thanksgiving break! Remind your child to use capital letters and punctuation marks. You can encourage them to try writing different types of sentences (telling, asking, exciting)!
Specials:
  • This week is a BLACK week
