Mrs. Milazzo’s 1st Grade Classroom News
Week of November 27th- December 1st
Important Dates: Monday 11/27- Spelling Pretest
Thursday 11/30- Hot Lunch
Friday 12/1- Spelling and Reading test Progress Reports (online)
Our Learning: Reading- When we return from break we will be starting a folklore story called “How Leopard Got His Spots.” Our focus will be on sequence of events and homophones. We will be taking a reading test at the end of the week over this story!
Our second reading test went great! The children had to read more independently. All that I read were the directions and questions to the students. But they had to read the story to themselves. If students had a question on a word, I did help them. They did amazing! Good work. Everyone makes me so proud. Remember to continue to read at home nightly!
Language- Students will identify and create simple commands, along with writing instructions and use possessives with ‘s.
Spelling- Our focus will be over diagraphs /ch/ and /tch/.
Math- Students took their chapter 4 math test and did awesome! Good work everyone! We began one lesson in chapter 5. Chapter 5 focuses on related facts, finding unknown numbers in problems, and solving problems where we have to choose the correct operations.
Science- We are still working on our “Sound” StemScope.
Social Studies- I am hoping to start talking about elections in social studies this week. Students will be participating in different activities for this unit. We will also have a “class election.” This is a fun unit for the kids!

Gingerbread Houses- I know this is a little early, but just in case parents are looking to volunteer and take off work ahead of time, our class will be making gingerbread houses on Friday, December 15th in the afternoon. More information about this will be sent home as the date approaches us! All volunteers are welcome!
I want to say thank you to all my parents! You guys are amazing and have been a great support in my transition to 1st grade! Your children make me happy each and every day and I am so thankful for that! I hope everybody has a great Thanksgiving!
