Look What We Are Learning
Reading - We will be reviewing letters, sounds, rhyming, sight words learned in kindergarten, and working on our short vowels.
Writing - In Writer's Workshop we will be learning about the writers workshop model, journals and exploring the different tools we can use to be successful writers.
Math - This month in math we will explore different math tools we will use throughout the year, work on writing numbers to 100, counting, and addition.
Science - We will be learning about light and sound.
Social Studies - We will be learning and practicing school procedures and classroom procedures. We will work hard on building friendships, being good friends, and forming our class family.
We are using a program called Second Step which teaches us how to be good citizens, understand why we have rules, learn how to be active listeners and stay
focused to learn.
Practice math facts. 1st graders need to be fluent with their addition and subtraction facts to 10.
Practice reading high frequency words. 1st graders need to be fluent with the first 300.
And most importantly…read EVERY DAY! 20 minutes before bed gets your child ahead!
