This Week's Lessons
I can't believe it is already April! We will begin our last first grade unit of study this week called Amazing Animals. I know everyone is going to love learning more about animals. As part of our learning, first grade will be taking a field trip at the end of April/beginning of May to Big Joel's Safari. Please be patient with us as we finalize details. We will be sending information home soon, so be checking those backpacks!Writing- We will continue writing informational pieces (non-fiction writing).
Reading-Students will read non-fiction books about the six main animal groups.
Spelling/Phonics-Compound Words part 2 (carload, cupcake, birthday, teapot, daydream, streetcar)
Sight Words- There are no new sight words for fourth quarter, but we will review words learned in first grade. Students are expected to read and spell these words correctly.
Math-Topic 13-Time. There are only four lessons in this topic, so I plan on giving the Topic 13 Test on Friday. I have assigned an online test for review. Please use the following to login to Pearson:
