We will continue with our time unit. Students will learn how to tell time to the hour and half hour on both an analog and a digital clock.

HOMEWORK:

I do not assign weekly homework. I expect my first graders to study their weekly spelling words, log into iStation for 30 minutes per week, and read at least 15-20 minutes per night. Please let me know if you are having problems logging in.

There is also an iStation app available to students.


They may read with you, to you, or on their own. I hope they play outside, with friends, and try some extra curricular activities too.
