November 13, 2017    Welcome!

What a wonderful Veterans Day Assembly we had on Friday, November 10!  Children were able to make  real life connections to our study of American Symbols !  We have been learning about the flag, bald eagle, Statue of Liberty and Washington Monument.  

We are beginning our unit on number sense.  We have begun to develop understanding of what numbers mean, see relationships with numbers, and use this understanding in real world experiences.  

We are continuing to build strong readers every day.  Children have become very diligent about using their COPS strategy in all aspects of writing.  Be sure to review this strategy with your child whenever you are writing sentences with him/her.

C—Did you use capitals correctly?

O—-Reread your sentence.  Did you write the words in the correct order?    Did you leave any out?

P—Did you use the correct punctuation?

S—Did you check your spelling and do your best?

REMINDERS!

First Grade Flash
November 6, 2017 Welcome!

We have had so much fun learning about ANIMALS! We learned about
animal coverings, the various habitats, how they move differently, what
they give us, how they prepare for cooler weather, and the differences
between wild and tame animals. Next week, we will learn about Patriotic
Symbols – the flag, bald eagle, Statue of Liberty, and the Washington
Monument.

We have completed our unit on graphs and will move onto number sense.
We will develop our understanding of what numbers mean, see relationships
with numbers, and will be able to use this understanding in real world
experiences.

Fun Game to Build Number Sense at Home
Guess My Number (use a hundreds chart or a number line)
To play, ask one player to choose a number. Choose numbers that your child is
comfortable with. This number remains secret until someone guesses it. To start, have one player at a time take turns narrowing the range until one is able to guess the number! Questions might include: Is it greater than fifty? Is it an even number? Is it less than eighty? Is it more than twenty? The range of numbers should narrow each time until someone guesses the actual number.

Important Dates
November 6 & 7 – Fall Conferences
November 7 – Student Holiday
November 10 – Veterans Day Assembly

Homework
1. Read to someone special at least 15 minutes every night.
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday

2. Choose a menu item to practice your word sort patterns every
evening!

*Please consider supporting our troops by sending in toiletries (travel size)
or individually wrapped snack items. These items will be packaged and
shipped to our military serving under deployment* – Collection is going on
now through November 10th. Thank you!

On the weekend, always spend time with special people,
do things you enjoy, read to them, and have them read
to you!

To sign up for a November conference, please access the sign up online via Signup Genius. Conferences will be held Monday (after school) on November 6 and the morning of Tuesday, November 7th.

In math we are completing our unit on graphs. We have learned to
