February 2015 ~ First Grade Newsletter   

ELA:  In Fundations, we continue to review the concepts taught up to this point in the year.  We will be working with consonant blends, digraph blends and closed syllable words up to five sounds.  You may refer to the new unit packet for further explanation.  Please remember to complete the assigned daily homework, as well as practice the trick words from all of the previous units.  During our ELA curriculum, we will be learning about biographies and studying famous Americans who have influenced our history.  We will also review nouns and adjectives and learn about verbs.   

  We are working on our subtraction facts to 20 using both the NYS Common Core Math Modules and our My Math program.  We continue to focus on utilizing math vocabulary during our lessons.  This may be reinforced with your child using the vocabulary cards sent home.


Social Studies:  This month we will begin to talk about our community, and the goods and services that are provided by our community members.


Science:  We will begin our third unit in science.  The children will learn about states of matter and distinguish between solids, liquids and gases.


Please remember that Wednesday nights your child is responsible for spending 15 minutes on Dreambox, AND 15 minutes on Raz-Kids or Lexia; the exception being those who opted-out and receive written homework.  Thank you.
