First Grade ~ November 2015 Newsletter   

Our first grade classes continue to work hard and are trying to demonstrate R.O.C.K.S. behaviors throughout the day.

ELA:  In Fundations, we continue to review the letters and their sounds, as well as the digraphs sh, th, ch, wh, and ck.  We will be learning about the “bonus letter rule,” (When f, l, s, and sometimes z is doubled at the end of a one syllable, short vowel word) as well as the glued sounds: am, an, and all.  Please continue to complete the assigned homework, as well as practicing the trick words.  The trick words can be found in the packets sent home at the beginning of each unit. 

Math:  We will be working with addition and subtraction facts to 20 as they relate to place value using both My Math (our textbook) and printed materials from (The Common Core website).  Please be sure to practice addition and subtraction facts to 10 with your child. 

Social Studies:  This month we will be learning about the history and traditions surrounding the first Thanksgiving.  We will also begin our second unit focusing on families.

Science:  We have been learning about what different scientists study and ways that we can behave like scientists.  We continue to work on organizing ourselves and observing objects more closely during this unit of study.

*Please be reminded that on Fridays, your child’s homework will be completed online using Dreambox for Math and Raz-Kids (and Lexia for those students with login information) for ELA.  This is in addition to his/her nightly reading log.  Please note, your child will be held accountable for completing this homework.
