Ms. Gebhard's 1st Grade Class

Make Yourself Proud!

Classroom Update

This coming up Friday, Bricks 4 Kidz will be joining our class! If you haven't turned in your blue sheet with $3 please do so on Wednesday. If you are in need of a scholarship, please let me know.

You'll see a change in the math homework starting next week. Instead of the review sheets we have been doing for the first half of the year, you will start seeing work that goes directly along with what we are working on in class (Engage NY). Students should be very familiar with this as it will look very similar to our classwork. I will note on the top the due date.

Thank you for all the snack donations! I could still use some more small coffee filters which we use to serve snack.

Math and Reading Fluency Homework Due

Our Learning Goals

Reading: With middle of the year MCLASS assessments approaching, we will continue to focus on fluency, comprehension, and written response to reading.

Fundations: We are learning about blends (two or more consonants together either before or after a vowel) and also r-controlled vowels (ar, or, er, ir, ur).

Writing: Students will be choosing and writing about their own "how-to" topic this week.

Math: We are focusing on measurement. Students will measure and compare objects using paper clips and centimeter cubes.

Science: We will continue our unit on force and motion with Bricks 4 Kidz joining us on Friday.
