The Game Plan

Welcome To First Grade!

Weekly News

  • Week of January 15th - 19th
    We had a fast 4 day week.  We did accomplish a  lot this week.  Our Friday E-slot lasted a while, we chose a scene from our favorite books and made a diorama using shoe box lids.  We will continue this into this week to add our writing piece that goes with it.   We also listened to the story 'One Snowy Day' by Ezra Jack Keats and created our own snowy day scene.  We will also add writing to this piece and hang it in the hallway.

    We will have the same list of spelling words this week, it will be the long A words again.

    Check out the info below to see what all we are learning this week:

    Math: Continue with place value (ones and tens place).  

    Reading: Building stamina in reading and discuss retelling stories.

    Writing: Continue Winter Break stories with a beginning, middle and end.

    Spelling:  Long A words (-ai and -ay) (word the district says first graders are responsible to know) are: came, is, said, which, come.)

    Social Studies: Complete our culture wheel writing and project.

Idiom of The Week

  • Week # 10

    Idiom of the week: #10Turn over a new leaf

    One of the Wordly boys did not like to brush his teeth. When he went to the dentist, he was told he had better do a good job or his teeth would be filled with cavities. He decided to turn over a new leaf and brush every day.

    Means: decide to do things in a better way

Problem of The Week

  • Week #5

    Joey ants a double school ice cream cone.  The store carries 3 flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry.  Joey needs to think of all the possible ice-cream combinations before making his decision.  Using these 3 different flavors, how many double-scoop combinations can be made? (hint: Don't forget two scoops of the same flavor.)
