We are halfway through first grade now. I am so impressed with all the students in our class and how far they have progressed since the beginning of the year. They are on their way to second grade and doing a great job.
Our class is working on long vowel sounds, some blends, comprehension, and reading strategies. In math we have been learning about place value and are about to start adding and subtracting two digit numbers. In Science we are studying animals, states of matter, and then natural resources. In Social Studies we will study famous Americans, more traditions, and conservation.
Please make sure your child is practicing the baggy book that is sent home every night Monday through Thursday. Math homework is also sent home these nights and both need to be returned the next day. Spelling homework is not assigned, but it is important that the children study their words during the week so that they will have a great score on their spelling tests on Friday. These activities are very important for their growth.
We are half way through the year, please let me know if you need help with completing your PI time.
