Hello! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Please read through the weekly notes and let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
We continue with fables this week. I am also completing reading tests during small group time, so I have not been meeting with small groups. Small group time will resume next week, after report cards are due.
This week we had about half get 95%+. Please ask your child if they received different words today. Their spelling tests are in their folder as well, but I do get texts about tests being misplaced. I am really trying not to put anyone’s name on the blog. Thanks for understanding.
First Grade Words
Pattern: /pr/ /tr/ /fr/ /dr/
We are working on lessons 7-10 this week, with a few quizzes here and there. Please note that I use the quizzes to help me plan my instruction, so they won’t come home right away. I need them to allow me to plan effectively. Also, continue to use the Parent Tip Sheets that I posted at the top of our blog. Remember you can also YouTube any of our lessons to find videos to help as well. 🙂
We will go over our culture projects, which we started today. If your child did not turn his/hers in today, please make sure they have it tomorrow. This is part of their social studies grade on the report card.
We will discuss transparent/opaque/translucent.
Leader in Me
