Ms. Gebhard's 1st Grade Class

Make Yourself Proud!

Classroom Update

There are so many fun things being celebrated in first grade this week!

Monday is our 100th day of school! We will be working on special activities throughout the day to celebrate our class being one hundred days smarter. Monday is also Chinese New Year, which we will be learning about throughout the week.

Friday we will have our Valentine's day card exchange. I sent home a letter Friday that included a class list for Valentine's. Please bring in enough cards for the class if you'd like to participate. I could also use a volunteer at 2pm and a treat for our celebration.

Our Learning Goals

Reading: With middle of the year MCLASS assessments in progress, we will continue to focus on fluency, comprehension, and written response to reading. We have also began working on finding the main idea and details in a nonfiction text.

Fundations: This week we are introducing how to mark the closed syllable words we have been learning. We will also focus on vowel teams (ai, ay, ee, ea, ey).

Writing: We are learning about how we can improve our writing using more details. We will work on editing.

Math: We are learning about place value (tens, ones). This will progress into greater than/less than next week.

Science: We will conclude our unit on force and motion this week working with gravity and friction.

Social Studies: We will learn about Chinese New Year and how this celebration is celebrated.
