Mrs. Clark's First Grade Class
A look into our week
In Writer's Workshop, we created a chart titled "What Do Writers Do?" In our classroom, writers make a plan, stay focused, write EVERY SOUND THEY HEAR, and use correct sentence structures (capital letters to start, spaces between words, and an ending mark "so the words don't fall off the page"). Ask your child about our sentence parade. In Writer's Workshop we do not focus on the correct spelling of words UNLESS it's a word already on our word wall OR a word we've had on a spelling test. Speaking of Spelling...
Spelling lists and homework will go home TODAY (Friday). Our spelling test will be on Friday, so please practice at home. Homework is due on Friday.
To integrate our science into our reading time, we also learned a poem (that happened to have 2 of this week's word wall words--"with" and "my") about our bodies. Students learned the poem, circled the word wall words, underlined the punctuation marks, and illustrated it. I've included a video of our class reciting the poem!
The actual run will be held on Friday, September 20 at 9:30. Parents are WELCOME to attend! If the kick off pep rally is anything like the run, it will be highly entertaining. Students will be wearing our Rock Prairie shirts, which I will distribute on Friday morning. Please make sure your child has on tennis shoes.
