1st Grade Newsletter
February 16 - 19, 2016
Curriculum for the week of February 16th - 19th
"I got 12 candy hearts for Valentines. I ate 7 of them. How many candy hearts do I have left?"
Reading--Visualize the story as students are reading. This is a reading strategy that helps build comprehension (understanding). We tell students to pretend they are making a movie of the book as they are reading. Visualizing while reading will help students remember what they are reading.
Grammar--adverbs to tell when (for example: now, first, last, early, yesterday, tomorrow, today, later...) We will focus on using these adverbs in our writing this week.
Science--identify and describe a variety of natural sources of water, including streams, lakes, and oceans
Social Studies--Identify contributions of historical figures. We will focus on the contributions of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
