    Phonics Patterns/Spelling:

    • The high frequency words your child needs to be able to spell are: there/their
    • This week’s word patterns that your child should be able to spell are: long i_e (-ike, -ime, -ide)

    Grammar: This week we will be learning about verbs.  A verb is an action word.  A verb is something that we can do.


    Math: This week we will begin our geometry unit.  We will start by focusing the two- dimensional shapes (triangles, trapezoids, squares, hexagons, rhombuses and rectangles).  The work with shapes includes comparing, defining attributes and developing problem-solving strategies. 


    Second Steps:  Your child is learning how to manage worried feelings using different ways to calm down, such as belly breathing, using self-talk, and counting.  Your child is also learning that it helps to talk to a trusted grown-up.  Please complete the green Home Link with your child and return in by Friday. 


    Scholastic book orders:  Orders are due on Friday.  You may send orders to school or order online.  Our class code is GML6Q. 


    Winter Recess:  First grade goes outside for recess whenever possible to burn some energy.  The children should wear their winter coat and have a hat and gloves every day.
