Happy Fall Break!

We come back to school on October 11th.

1/2 Days: Mon/Tue/Wed (11th, 12th, 13th)

Conferences 10/12-10/13!

I still need 7 families to sign up! Please let me know if you don’t find a time that works. I will find a time for us to meet if Tue/Wed is a problem for you.


Coming Home Friday: Everything!

Consonant Blend Packet (-r blends/-s blends)

We got a lot done this week! Take a look to see what your kids are working on: (blends/possessives/sentence structure…)

Spelling Tests

I gave this week’s spelling test on Thursday and the kids did great!!

In class, we say, “We all make mistakes because we are trying!” If your child gets words wrong, please know that we focus on the effort! One of our goals is to learn the process of taking a spelling test and all of the kids are doing great!

Math Test Topic 3

We took the test Thursday on Topic 3. I will keep it to show you at conferences. Both Topic 2 and 3 tests will give us a glimpse into your child’s mathematical thinking!


Keep Practicing from the High Frequency Word List (HFW)

We’ve learned them all! Keep practicing!

Read/Write/Find these words in print to practice!

*To My Parents of Above Grade Level Learners:

These pages may not seem challenging enough for your kids! Rest assured, in class, we do a lot of enrichment activities and extensions! For example, the book at the end of the /i/ packet has very few words for beginning first grade level readers. One extension idea would be to add more detail to the sentences, like descriptive words or an addition at the end of the sentence.

For math, our discussions are deep and the activities and games that we play can be more challenging!

Parents at School!
