LHE First Grade Fun

May 22nd-May 26th

Sunshine glorius sunshine! The Fun Run was a great success with lots of families coming out to run and walk their way to summer health!

 

There are lots of fun events coming up. Stay tuned into the Lacamas website, Bloomz, and our first grade blog to keep up with end of the year festivities.

 

This week…

Volunteers join us Wednesday, May 24th at 11:50a.m. for a lunch honoring you!

A Zoo Snooze emergency form was sent home this week. Please, return it by Monday, May 22nd!

More Zoo Snooze information will be coming home this week, including an agenda and list of things to remember to pack.

There is new poetry homework in your child's binder. Please complete it together each week.

Students are earning money as part of a social studies unit. They will spend the money on each others products at the "First Grade Fair." They will also receive money for returning the new poetry homework.

 

In reading… students will be researching to find details to support their answer. They will also learn about teaching others using informational text features, including diagrams, close ups, comparisons, photographs/captions, and fact boxes.

At home take time to read informational texts. Point out text features, identify them and talk about what they are teaching. Ask your child what question they are answering in reading.

 

In writing…students will be writing conclusions to support their opinions. Students will restate their opinion in the conclusion.

 

In math…students will be adding ten more/less and one more/less than any given number 1-120. Students will practice adding and subtractly fluently within 20, counting quarters and dollars, and writing expanded equations.

 

In social studies…students have finished their study of economics including an introduction to "needs, wants, goods, services, products, producers, and consumers." We will have our "First Grade Fair" where they will work as producers in the upcoming week.

In between units of study Mrs. Clary will teach a math unit on graphing. Students will collect and analyze data. They will interpret information on graphs demonstrating an understanding of the vocabulary, "more, less, greatest, and least."

Coming up in science…SPACE!

 

Have a wonderful week…

Your first grade teachers
