           What is Happening in First Grade for:
                             August/September

Reading

During September students will be learning about the author Jonathan London, and we will be reading our favorite Froggy books written by him. We will be previewing and predicting what we think is going to happen throughout the story. We will also practice picking our favorite part of a story we are reading and sharing why it was our favorite part. Don't forget to have your child do both of these things in the books they bring home each night.

Word Study

The first few weeks of school we will spend some time reviewing the word wall words learned in kindergarten. We will also be learning a new word family chunk each week. Don't forget to review these words each night before the test each Friday! The words are located in the ziploc bag in their bag-a-books!

Writing

During September we will be learning what it means to be a writer. We will think of ideas, plan out our stories, write, and then revise. We are working on writing about true moments in our lives so that we can add lots of details!

Math

The first few weeks of school we will spend time looking at addition. We will be solving and creating addition stories, as well as discussing addition as part-part-whole. We will be using online games and resources that you can use at home as well! The website and password is located on the front of your student's homework folder.

Social Studies

In Social Studies we will learn about our school, the people who work in our school, and how schools have changed over time. We will also spend time learning our school rules and expectations along with class building activities to help us get to know each other.
