Seguin Elementary School

This Week:

Literacy: We will apply our learning to poetry.

Writing: We will continue writing procedural texts.

Math: We will count 1 to 120 forwards and backwards from any given number.

Social Studies: We will begin a unit on our World and focusing on maps, directions, and locations.

Science: We will begin our unit on rocks and soil. Feel free to send a rock to school for them to study all week.

Spelling Words

This week we will have a mix of 5 short a words and 5 long a words.

Short a word examples - mat, clap, ham

Long a word examples - gate, game, base

We have finished all the short vowel sounds and long vowel sounds and although it has been difficult for our First Graders to discriminate between ten different vowel sounds, I am so proud of them. Great job practicing with them at home families!

Christmas Craft Fair Donations Needed

First grade will be collecting items for a Spa themed basket. These baskets help raise money for Sequin Elementary. Please send any donations possible that would fit with a Spa theme.

Thank you in advance for your donations!

Background Checks

We are beginning to plan our Field Trip's for the year so please confirm with the office that your background checks are complete if you wish to attend with your child. If you have not completed one, you can get them from the office as well. Only parent's with approved background checks will be able to attend field trips with us.
