This week was super fun and super busy. We got back into the swing of things around the classroom and had fun exploring numbers and magnets.
Everyone has been working so hard on their rainbow words, and I am thrilled to congratulate Zeven, Dremari, Alexa, Phoenix, Adam, and Zuhal for finishing their yellow words and moving on to green. Hip-hip-horay to Charlotte for finishing all of her green words and moving on to blue. Shawn and Addision have done an amazing job finishing their red one words (first grade red words) and moving up to yellow one. Keep up the great job!
Every month students have the opportunity to purchase books from the scholastic school book order. The Jan order form went home this week. If you are interested in purchasing books for your student, you can send the order form and payment back to school by Jan 28th or you can order online. Please make sure to specify Yael Fletcher as the teacher (if you accidentally chose the wrong Mrs. Fletcher your order will not show up on my site and it will not be processed).
Reading: We continued making predictions about the books we were reading.
Writing: We worked on a review of our letters and writing our first and last names.
Math: We started learning about parts of numbers and how we can put numbers together to make a whole. For example, we know that 1 and 2 are both parts of 3. We are not using any specific mathematical symbols just yet, but we can talk about the different parts of whole numbers.
Science: We continued our work with magnets.
Reading: We will continue making predictions about the books we are reading.
Writing: We will be working on a review of our letters and will continue writing our first and last names. We will also be working to write different words and to leave spaces between words.
Math: We will continue learning about different parts of numbers.
Social Studies: We will learn about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the important contributions he made to our country.
A note from Ms. Rhoden: Parent referrals for gifted identification will be accepted beginning January 3 to January 18, 2019. As you consider your decision to refer your child, please be sure to speak with his/her teacher to discuss any gifted qualities being observed in the classroom on a consistent basis. Referrals should be submitted in writing (email is acceptable) to Jennifer Rhoden at firstname.lastname@example.org during these designated dates. No referrals will be accepted after January 18. The subject line of the email should state GIFTED REFERRAL, and the email should include the student’s first and last name, grade level, teacher, and area of referral (English, Math, Both). An email confirmation will be sent within 48 hours. If you do not receive an email confirmation, please call the school.
Have a wonderful weekend!
