SINNsational 1st Graders

Welcome to Room 4


  • February 14 - Valentine's Day (card exchange and mini party)
  • February 17 - NO SCHOOL/ President's Day
  • February 21 - Staff Pillo Polo Game at Tohickon (4:00 pm): Come out and cheer the Gayman teachers on (Mrs. Sinn WILL be playing)


This week we read the story Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs and we focused on the following skills:
  • Reading fluency - reading not too fast or too slowly but just right (pace)
  • Reviewing compound words
  • Reviewing details from the story


This week we made a lot of progress with the story we've been writing. We are about finished and our stories will be ready to share soon! We've sketched out our ideas, wrote our "sloppy copy", edited our own writing for conventions, Mrs. Sinn then edited our writing, each child then rewrote the good copy, and then we completed our title and author page. Our last step will be to get our covers laminated and then our books can be bound (stapled). Whew, making a book is a lot of work!


This week we focused on the following skills:

  • Taking a 2nd marking period assessment of secure skills
  • Addition and Subtraction Fact Table
  • Name Collection Box
  • Fact Families (2, 3, 5 are a fact family since four facts can be made with these numbers - 2+3=5, 3+2=5, 5-2=3, 5-3=2)

**Our Unit 5 Math Assessment will come home next week to be signed.**
