Mrs. Seeley's Weekly Stats

October 13

First Grade Friends


Making connections helps students find ways to personally relate to a text. Here are some sample questions for each type of connection:

*Focusing on text-to-self connections:

What does this story remind you of?

Can you relate to the characters in the story?

Does anything in this story remind you of anything in your own life?

*Focusing on text-to-text connections:

What does this remind you of in another book you have read?

How is this text similar to other things you have read?

How is this text different from other things you have read?

*Focusing on text-to-world connections:

What does this remind you of in the real world?

How are events in this story similar to things that happen in the real world?

How are events in this story different from things that happen in the real world?


We will continue to improve our personal narratives with good beginnings, many details, and perfect endings.

We will also continue studying contractions, as well as reviewing telling and asking sentences.


We will be looking at the relationship between addition and subtraction. We will be using a number line to count on and back in solving math problems.

Social Sciences

We will dive into a unit on the Past and Present. We will study past and present transportation, schools, homes, and games.

Next week will celebrate the 50th day of school on Thursday, October 22.
