January 25-29, 2016 Week 20

We have had so many days off and I am looking forward to when our routine gets back to normal! This week we will have a math marathon on Monday, students will rotate through our 6 first grade classrooms.  Teachers will teach a math lesson over upcoming math skills for the 4th six weeks.  I will be teaching an M&M graphing activity to all of the classes! 
On Tuesday we will have our midyear Reading Benchmark Test.  On Thursday we will have our Math Benchmark Test.  We will have homework only on Monday of this week.  We will have a reading story along with spelling words BUT we will not have a spelling test over the words this week.  We will test over the words next Friday, Feb. 5.  The boys and girls need a brain break! 

Our Reading story this week is "I'm a Caterpillar." It is a nonfiction story about the life cycle of a butterfly.  Reading skills are to blend and read words with r-controlled vowels -er, -ir, -ur;  fact and opinion; verbs (am, is, are, was, and were); contractions; and daily Saxon Phonics.

In Language Arts we are working on editing and writing complete sentences using correct capitals, phonetic spelling, spacing, punctuation, and sentence structure (noun and verb agree).

In Math we will build numbers up to 120.

In Science we will continue Recycling. 

In Social Studies we will identify the 4 cardinal directions (north, east, south, west); and work on map skills.
