Week of 10/14/14

Happy Tuesday!!! I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend!  Here is what's happening in first grade this week:

In Reading Workshop this week we will talk about how good readers read the story by looking at the pictures, recognizing patterns, and getting a sense of what the story is about.  We will also discuss why good readers act out their stories, notice details or new things when they reread, and how they can be reminded of things as they read.

In Writing Workshop this week we will discuss the importance of staying in our small moments even as we write the ending, we will begin working with partners to talk about our writing with other writers and storytelling their ideas out loud.  We will learn to utilize our partners to help us become better writers.

This week in math we will continue working on subtraction.  The students will learn to find the missing part of 8 and 9 when 1 part is known, and they will write and solve subtraction sentences.

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!!
