It is crazy to think that we only have 56 days left of first grade! The good news is that after April vacation, time does seem to slow down a bit. Around this time, I always get this feeling of "WAIT! There is still so much I want to teach you!"
Below are the skills for this week. We will be trying to finish up unit 3 between now and April Vacation.
Comprehension: Fact and Opinion
Amazing Words: insect, emerge, rearrange, cycle, vessel, fragile, flurries, develop
Words of the week: done, know, push, visit, wait
-ur, and -er.... which happen to all say that same sound. As I say to the kids, "WHO MADE THAT UP!?!?!" We will then move on to -ar, and -or. Stay tuned!
Also, I put a notice in backpack mail today about sending your child in with a clean roll of toilet paper this Wednesday for an annual First Grade Craft. If a Costco run is on your list of errands this week and you are down to one roll, no worries... I will bring extra.
Ok! I think that is it for now! Have a GREAT week everyone!
