First Grade News!

Hi First Grade Parents,

     

     In Reading we are kicking off our Non-Fiction unit. We are learning that we can become super-smart about all kinds of topics by reading non-fiction books.

     In Writing, we are writing non-fiction. In first grade the students write about what they are "experts" in. It might be soccer, Legos, Gymnastics, etc. They then tell "all about" it so they can teach others what they know. 

     Our phonics sound will be working on -tch, -ed and mis-.  Our sight words are: new, from, any, many. 

     In math we are adding 3 digits together. We are making a "friendly number" by adding numbers to make a 10. For example, 9+1+7=____ turns into 10+7=17. 

 

*December 15th is Pajama Day! If your student plans to wear their pajamas, please no slippers. 

 

In February the entire first grade will go to Chabot Space and Science Center to learn more about space. We have written a grant to pay for the field trip. If anyone is interested in donating, the link is;
