Mrs. Giangreco's First Grade
April 24- April 28
Important: If you haven’t had a chance please take the time to read the email that was sent home about the Apex Fun Run. This is a school fundraiser for our Spanish program next school year. We will be having our kick of assembly tomorrow!
Reading/Phonics: In Phonics, we will be working with a few spelling rules this week. We will learn about the “drop rule” (bake, baked, baking), the “double rule” ( hop, hopping, hopped), and the “change rule” (cry, cried, cries). This week we will meet characters who have difficulty expressing themselves. In the realistic fiction story The Dot, we’ll read about a fictional girl who has trouble drawing a polar bear. Children will meet more artists in the biography Artists Create Art! Children will also explore the question “What are some different ways to make art?”
Grammar/Writing: In grammar this week, we will focus on exclamatory sentences. Look for the grammar book to come home Thursday. We will also work on opinion writing.
Religion: We didn’t get our Alleluia project done on Friday. We will finish those this week and get them in the hallway. In our next chapter, we will discuss Jesus rising to meet his friends and we will discuss how praying to Jesus can bring peace to ourselves and others.
Math: We will start our next chapter in math on shapes. We will continue to work with shapes this week. We will play a riddle game comparing shapes and work on a masterpiece of composite shapes. We will be using this masterpiece for a writing project on Friday.
Social Studies\ Science: We will begin our social studies unit on service and goods.
Spelling: Spelling test will be Friday
