Week 23 January 20th-24th

January 20,2014

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend!

I would like to remind all parents that your child will be taking his/her first MAP assessment tomorrow, Tuesday, January 21st. Please make sure that your child gets plenty of sleep Monday night, eats a healthy breakfast and comes to school with water. For our new parents, there is information about the MAP assessments on the right hand side of the blog, under the 'Pages' heading.

100 Days of School is just around the corner. I ask that every first grader wear 100 of something or make a t-shirt with 100 things stuck to it. I would like all the students to wear their item (s) to school for the 100 Days Celebration on Wednesday, January 29th.

Last, I would like your help. If you have any American coins and would like to donate them, I would greatly appreciate it. Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters are what we need. We will be using the coins to skip count in the money unit.

This week your child will inquire into the following:

Language Arts 
Phonics- This week's words are live, me, back, most, give. Your child will be learning these words and reviewing older words through various chants and activities.

Reading-The class will begin reading Frog and Toad All Year by Arnold Lobel. We will be identifying the problem of the story, continue exploring summarizing, retelling a text in their own words, and answering questions about key details in the text. You can help your child with these skills by asking him/her to retell a page of a story or the entire story in his/her own words after reading it.

Writing- Your child will be writing an informative piece about his/her favorite toy. The students will work through the entire writing process; beginning with brainstorming, making an organizational map, rough draft, editing and revising, final draft, and sharing.

Math- The class will continue practicing skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s, and solving a problem by finding patterns in tables. Please help your child with skip counting by asking them to count nightly. Your child is expected to be able to count to 120 forward and back by 1s, and forward to 100 by 2s, 5s, and 10s.

Science- This week's science class will be spent investigating solids in water, and testing solids with magnets
