October is sure
flying by! Where is the time going!? We are working hard in first grade, and
here’s a peek at our week J
What we are
Our Balanced Literacy time now includes
read to self, word work, work on writing, listen to reading and read to self. This
week we will review all words and phrases in list 1. Our reading strategy for the month of October
will be to first take a picture walk and then to track the text with your
finger. We will be introducing the sound for “oa/ow”, and continue to work on
proper letter and number formation – if you notice your little one making any
“backward” numbers or letters, please correct them so that it doesn’t become a
habit. We are sending home a letters/numbers sheet for you to keep at home to help.
In Math, we have been working on
counting in a variety of ways forward and backward from a given number to 20,
counting by 2’s and will be exploring the wonderful teen numbers!
In You and Your World, we will discuss
Halloween safety and continue our WITS discussions.
