Hi everyone!  Here is what's happening in first grade this week:

In Reading Workshop this week we will spend time talking about working cooperatively with partners.  We will discuss how partners should sit, how to plan ways to read together, how to take turns and make decisions together, and how to solve problems together.

In Writing Workshop this week we will focus on making our stories come to life.  The students will learn how to to unfreeze their characters.  They will learn techniques to help their characters move and speak.  They will learn how to make it clear to their readers who is talking in their stories.

This week in math we will continue working on subtraction.  The students will tell and act out stories about taking away, comparing, and finding the missing part.  They will also learn to write subtraction sentences to represent different types of subtraction stories.

A Few Reminders:
-please send book baggies in daily so that students can swap out the books they are reading at home daily.
-have your child read every night-whether it be the book baggie books or Raz-Kids, or a combination of both.
-send in an old sock to be used as a white board eraser.
-practice addition and subtraction facts to 10.

Have a wonderful week!!
