This Week in 1st Grade:

Math: We are working on a strategy of using doubles facts to solve doubles +1 problems. For example: 3 + 4 ...We would use 3 + 3 because we know it equals 6 and add 1 more to make 7.

Reading: We are continuing our comprehension focus of visualizing while reading. We also will be working on analyzing characters in our stories. Small guided reading groups will be beginning to focus on decoding strategies to help your child become a better reader!

**Your October reading goal is to read 350 minutes! If your child does this they will get a coupon to Cousin's Subs for a FREE MINI SUB!!** (I also give an award for the student with the most reading minutes each month!!)

Writing: We will be working on drafting a journal entry this week. We also will be reviewing the conventions we need to use to be a good writer.

Science: Our focus is on separating solids and how solids and liquids react together.
