First Grade News

Week of November 10 - 14

Reading

We are going to finish Unit 5 tomorrow and Start on Unit 6 Wednesday. I am trying to get back on track from the storm days. I would like to finish up these two units, so after Thanksgiving we will have a few extra days to do some holiday stuff. This weeks AR goal is 50%. Some of the students are very close. Also continue to do Sight Words.

Grammar

We are learning about verbs with ed and ing endings. We are also learning about Antonyms. We will have a short review quiz tomorrow. In unit 6 we will be learning about plural nouns.

Spelling

I have moved the spelling test for unit 5 to tomorrow. Most of the students did very well on the practice reviews in class. The words for Unit 5 are we, there, or, be, to, from, shopping, asked, helped, and hugging. I added work in the homework packet for Unit 6 also. Please try not to start these pages until Wednesday. That way we will have time to review the words in class. The words for Unit 6 are of, said, here, out, only, you, so, go, hi, and no. This test will be next Thursday, Nov. 19.
