First Grade News

Week of September 15 - 19


We are beginning Unit 2 this week of Adventures of the SuperKids. I have added a little reading story to the homework packet this week. Please have your child read it to you each night. This is to help them with fluency. They will have to read it to me on Friday for a reading grade.
Don't forget to review old sight words each night. They are doing great with the sight words.
Keep reading AR books. I will be sending home a list of all test taken and how many books they still need to read for this nine weeks.


We are learning about the digraphs th and wh this week. The words for this week are where, when, why, when, which, who, path, cloth, think, and then. The test for these words will be next Thursday. There is spelling activities in the homework packet for each night.
You can also go to for more practice.


We are learning about questions and question marks in this unit. Look for the homework page in the homework packet. There will be a short test next week on questions.
