Mrs. Garthe's Fantastic First Grade
November 15, 2015
This Week's Lessons
Reading-We will continue reading The Wizard of Oz. As expected, everyone is really enjoying this story. We are watching short clips of the movie as we read, but we currently don't have the rights to show the entire movie. I would recommend showing your child this movie after we have finished the book (maybe over Thanksgiving Break). You could discuss how the book and movie are alike/different.
Spelling/Phonics- Ending blends mp, nd, lf, ft
Sight Words-stop, does, don't (please continue to help your child practice sight words and work toward his or her sight word goal for the quarter)
Math-Topic 5-Addition facts to 20. We will have our Topic 5 math test on Tuesday. I have assigned a practice test on the Pearson website. Please have your child do this in preparation for Tuesday. Also, students set their math fact goals for this quarter. The goal for all of first grade is for 80% of students to be able to do at least 21 out of 26 addition facts correctly in under three minutes. If students have already reached this goal, they have set a more challenging personal goal. Please keep working on addition and subtraction facts at home.
