Mrs. Fobbe's Class

First Grade

Reading and Writing

Theme 14, Week 2
  • Vocabulary words: promise, loyalty, fairness
  • Comprehension strategy: conclusions, Review Retelling

In reading, we are practicing making conclusions by taking the information we already know plus the information from the story and coming up with a conclusion. We continue to practice retelling stories by making sure we hit the important parts and not retell word for word. Practice retelling at home while reading your books. In writing, we are working on using our conventions while writing.

Reminders

  • Our class is running low on Clorox wipes. If you would be interested in donating you can send it with your child to school. :)
  • If you have NOT turned in the purple form for track and field day please send that back.
  • I am still looking for a few volunteers for our Como Zoo field trip.
