Mrs. Giangreco's First Grade
September 26-September 30
Reading/Phonics: In phonics, we will review the short sound of a. We will work on the /k/ sound spelled with ck and double consonants. We will learn about the milk/truck rule and the FLOSS rule this week. We use ck right after a short vowel most of the time when we hear /k/ at the end of a word. We will continue tapping the letters in CVC words then blending them. We will be reading a fantasy story this week. We will learn what a fable is and what lesson our character learns. Ask your child what makes our story fantasy this week. Our essential question for this week is: What lesson can you learn from story characters. We will also read a fairy tale this week. Our target skills for this week are: understanding characters and summarizing.
Grammar/Writing: We will work on writing complete sentences. We will learn that a complete sentence must have 2 parts: a subject (who or what) and a predicate (a did what). We will watch another Grammar Snap video to help us remember!
Religion: We will be learning part of a poem to help us remember that God’s House is holy. We will also discuss how God shares his life with us. We will talk about the sacrament of Baptism and discuss how Baptism gives us new life.
Math: We will continue to learn subtraction concepts this week. We will work on subtracting 0 and subtracting all! We will be working on drawing pictures to help us solve our word problems this week. We will learn all the symbols needed to write a subtraction number sentence. We will also discuss how we can use subtraction to compare numbers to find the difference!
Science: We will continue to work in our daily science books. Our weekly question this week is: Do fish drink water?
Spelling: short a words and the high frequency words
Please take some time to work on spelling the words to know! We have been using body spelling at school. Try other multi-sensory ways to help ( write them on sandpaper, use shaving cream, or sand)
We will have the test on Friday!
