FEbruary Life Skill
before, any, work, word, because
We will begin working on Fact Families next week. I sent home a math packet for you to practice at night with your chilld.
Example: #’s 2, 6, 8
*Rule: In a subtraction problem, the biggest number ALWAYS has to come first.
Please continue to practice your math facts at home! By May your child will need to pass both the +10's and +20's District Math Essentials test. In order for your child to "pass", they must answer 11 out of 12 correctly on 3 different tests! They will have 36 seconds to answer as many addition facts as they can. We will continue to practice this through math activities and Rocket Math. We will be taking the District Math Essentials test 2 times each week so that students have many opportunities to pass before the end of the school year!
The First Grade Team is teaming up with the University of Missouri’s Extension Program to participate in Jackson County’s 4-H Embryology program called “Hatching Chicks in the Classroom.”
Throughout 4th quarter the students will be learning about the relationship between the physical structure of animals and the function of those structures. Your student will have the opportunity to learn about the cycle of life and development all through hands-on learning. Students have the opportunity to monitor the incubator, take care of the eggs, and so much more.
The cost of this program is $70 per class. If you would like to donate to this cost you can send in your donation to school in an envelope labeled "chick fund". We appreciate your support in this amazing opportunity! Of course, this is a voluntary donation and not required.
