Phonics…what used to be known as spelling!

Each week we will focus on a particular letter pattern. The purpose of these lessons is for your child to become familiar with how to decode and correctly spell the words that follow the letter pattern.

Each Friday students will have a spelling test. The spelling test is not a set of words, but rather words that use the letter pattern. Each week you will be able to find the letter pattern on our website by finding first grade.

Fire Safety

!st grade will be learning about fire safety this week. A Brooklyn Park Fire fighter will be coming to talk to our class about fire safety. We will get to see the equipment firemen wear and will get a tour of the fire truck.
