This week with our Wonders program we will focus on the Essential Question of: How do things get built? We will be talking and reading about different structures and how they are built.
Our phonics will look at more diphthongs: oi, oy.
Our spelling words are:
spoil, coin, join, joy, toy, boy
Our Sight Words are: build, fall - - with exposure to: above, knew, money, toward.
Our grammar focus will be prepositions and prepositional phrases. We will learn about final stable syllables (mid/dle).
With our Everyday Mathematics program we will be finishing up our Unit 8 assessment and then start Unit 9. We will continue adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers, review the greater than/less than symbols, place value, geometry, and fractions.
This Friday, First Grade will be involved in an exciting opportunity within our town- - planting trees. A permission slip will be going home early in the week with additional details.
Also this week we will be participating in the Artist in Residence program with Mark Ragonese. We will be creating and stamping tie-dyed flags. All of the NBCS students will then be writing their Dream, Wish, or Believe statement on these flags - - which will then hang outside on the playground.
