Writing-Narrative Writing-students will recount a time that they had a lot of feeling about something. This piece of writing will be a summative evaluation of your child's writing skills learned thus far in first grade.

Sight Words-house, favorite, put, home, old (please continue to help your child practice sight words and work toward his or her sight word goal for the quarter)

Math-Topic 3-Five and Ten Relationships. This is a very short topic (only 5 lessons), so we will be having a test on Thursday. I have assigned a practice test on the Pearson website. Please have your child do this in preparation for Thursday.
