Dear Parents,
There have been many new and exciting things happening in first grade!  This week we had an assembly provided by RESCO on the story Joshua’s Dragon.  The assembly was on realizing things that are tricky for you that you would like to overcome and setting a plan to accomplish your goals. We learned about three different people and the “dragons” that they had in their lives.  Through hard work and determination, each person was able to overcome their “dragon.”  When we came back to class, the students thought about their own “dragons” and wrote about how they could overcome them.  Have a discussion with your child about the assembly and what the plan they wrote to conquer their “dragons!”
In reading we have been working on reviewing all of the word families we know up to this point.  We have also been working on nouns, pronouns, verbs, and adjectives.  Some of the students are having trouble remembering which definition goes with each word.  Please review this with your child so that they can become more familiar with each of these concepts.
In language we have been writing like crazy!  We have written paragraphs on the importance of following our classroom expectations, what we would do with a hundred dollars and what we would like to do over the weekend.   Next week we will be writing another paragraph on what we would do if we found a pot of gold.  I am so excited about how well the students have been doing when writing!
Next week we will hopefully be taking a test on chapter 8, which is on two digit addition and subtraction.  I have been quite impressed at how well the students are doing with these difficult concepts.  They love learning the “second grade math” as I like to call it!  Our next chapter will be on measurement.  This chapter can be a bit tricky, so please make sure you are practicing the concepts at home!
If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at school or contact me via email.  Have a great weekend with your family!
Mrs. O’Callaghan
