First Grade News

Week of May 9 - 13

Reading

For the next few weeks, we will be completing the Superkids Units. I am combining the last four units together. We will be covering them very quickly, but I wanted to at least introduce and go over the topics before they reached the second grade. I have discussed most of it during the year, so it won't be all new topics to them.

Next Friday is the last day for AR testing. Please use extra time in the evenings to read.

I will still test on sight words. The higher the test the better reader your child will be next year.

Spelling

There will be no more unit test in Spelling after tomorrow. I will test on Unit 9 words tomorrow. However, there are words on the end of unit assessments that we will be taking over the next few weeks. I will send a list of those words that will be tested on home tomorrow for practice.

Grammar

We will continue to review nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs over the next few weeks. We will also be reviewing other topics discussed this year.
