Mrs. Giangreco's First Grade
Reading/Phonics: In phonics, we will work with compound words and the short e sound spelled -ea. In reading this week, we will read a folktale Little Rabbit’s Tale. We will read about a rabbit hat warns all her friends that the sky is falling. We’ll also read about other silly animals in Silly Poems. Children will explore the question “How can you help a friend who feels sad?” Our target skill this week is cause/effect. (tell what happens and why)
Grammar/Writing: In Grammar, we will introduce prepositions and prepositional phrases. Look for our Grammar Book to come home on Thursday. During writer’s workshop this week, we will be writing our own folktales with a twist!
Religion: We will discuss how Jesus works through others to show his love for us and heal us. We discussed how doctors help us when we are sick. We discussed how we can help the hungry by sharing our food. We will have our review on Thursday and our chapter test on Friday.
Math: We will continue our chapter on 2 digit subtraction. We will work on subtracting 10’s this week. We will use a 10’s number line to count back to find the difference. We will also review related facts. (They have the same 3 numbers)
Science: We are back in our Daily Science books this week. We will finish our unit on winter.
Spelling: I will be changing how we do our spelling test this week. I know our Words to know have gotten more difficult. I will be picking 2 of the words to know for our test. The students will have them highlighted on their spelling sheets in their FROG. The test will be Friday. Please take time and study these.
