chrome books on Thursday most weeks. This Thursday all of the first grade teachers will be out for a SEAL training, so we will actually start using computers the following week. This gives you a little extra time if you're planning on supplying headphones for your child to use when we are utilizing technology!
Your student should have received a new (optional) math menu and a letter explaining the math unit we've started this week in his or her purple folder. Also, I've been informed that there is an error on this week's homework. Monday is missing from the day of the week page (the first page). Feel free to have your child add it in where there is space. Thanks for your flexibility!
We had a celebration on Friday because we finished our first writing unit (this is predominately an assessment unit). The first graders looked cute in their celebratory crowns! They held their books over their faces to take a photograph that would be appropriate to share on this website. We are going to start personal narrative writing this week. Students being aware of the genre they are writing about will inform their comprehension abilities in reading, as well. The first grade lingo we use to define personal narrative writing (from the writer's perspective) is that the story is "true and it happened to you." Happy writing!
