First Grade News
This school year is flying by! We are already finishing up the 3rd quarter. All the students keep improving their reading skills so keep on reading and listening to your child read every night. Reading fluency takes lots of practice during these young years! We just finished a unit on telling time to the hour and half-hour. Please work with your child at home on telling time too; this is a life-long skill. We just finished our unit on Force and Motion is Science. We also finished up our unit on American Symbols in Social Studies.
Please listen to your child read every night and sign the Reading Log! There has been no math homework this year unless your child was absent or behind. There is spelling homework every week for your child to complete please help them when needed.
I will send out scholastic book orders throughout the school year so keep your eyes open for those!!
