First Grade News

Week of March 14 - 18


We will begin Unit 4 this week. We will test on that unit next Tuesday.
We will have our Dr. Seuss Day next Thursday. This will allow plenty of time for students to create their poster or costume.
AR testing has begun for the last nine weeks. Don't wait until the end to get points.
Sight word testing daily. I test on Fry list on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays only.


The spelling words for unit 4 are put, our, they, come, coming, call, small, saw, yawn, and crawl. This test will be next Tuesday. I am not sending homework packets home this week. You can practice spelling words at This link should take you to my page. After students play some games and practice the words, let them take the test and print it out. This will show me that they did the practice for the homework grade.


We will be working on writing skills. Sentence structure and editing skills. We will also be reviewing for the ITBS test.
