Poem of the Week

This is the Fall


Grapes in the vineyard,

Purple and dark;

Brown leaves are floating

Down in the park.


Red are the apples,

Plenty for all.

This is the harvest,

This is the fall.

Dear Parents of Room 18,


It was another busy, fun-filled week in first grade!  Here are some high-lights!



We learned some new sight words!  We also reviewed the 5-step process to turning a new word into a snap word.  We spent time practicing our printing as we wrote each new snap word as well.

Writers Workshop

We practiced thinking of a BIG moment and then writing down small moments from that big moment.  Students then picked one of those smaller moments to write about.  We also practiced adding our 5 senses into our writing - what did you hear, taste, smell, feel  and see?  The class is writing a lot!  It's so fun to watch them grow in their writing!

Readers Workshop

We wrote down reading goals this week (see below).  We also practiced keeping track of our reading with tally marks.  The class also learned a fun, new phonics program on the computer called LexiaCore 5!  I will pass on your childs' log-in information at our parent/teacher conference.


In math we've been working on adding doubles.  We are also continuing our dot talks and math number talks.  The class is also learning how to log-in to a new math game called Zearn.



Thank you for returning your childs' permission slip and field trip donation so promptly!  I think I almost have all them turned in!

Don't forget next week is NOON DISMISSAL for parent/teacher conferences.  I look forward to meeting with all of you!


I hope everyone has a wonderful, restful weekend!
