What's the Buzz in 1st Grade?
Mrs. Kesler's 1st Grade Class Weekly Newsletter
Besides Guided Reading, this week we began a new Magic Tree House book, titled The Knight at Dawn, for our snack time read aloud. We also began reading Mo Willems' city dog, country frog and explored how good readers think while reading a text.
We were so excited and thankful to have a guest reader in our class today. Thank you Mrs. Neal for sharing your time with our class, reading The Lion King to our students! The students enjoyed your reading, as did I! Thank you!!
Our Reading center Top Ten theme this week was "Things That are Living". We also had word work (where the students are making words out of the letters in "springtime"), a listen to reading center, Raz-Kids or Lexia on the computer, Silly Sentences and writing. Ask your child what their favorite reading center is and why.
Please make sure your child is reading 30 minutes per day. We are working on comprehension and fluency daily.
