Mrs. Olivarez's First Grade Class

November 16-20

Welcome to our first online newsletter!

I am excited to be able to send you an online newsletter. This will keep parents and me in better communication about what is going on in our classroom. Our classroom goal this year is to integrate more technology in our education. This online newsletter is on our first step. If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me at

What we will be learning all week!

Reading: students will be identifying character traits by listening to a variety of read aloud.

Phonics: students will learn the long vowel "e" and the "ee" pattern by building words and identifying them.

Writing: students will begin writing their first draft and editing. They will also lean about compound words.

Math: students will continue learning and identifying addition and subtraction word problems. They will use ten-frame charts to help them. Students will also learn double plus one.
