First Grade News with Mrs. Sobczak
November 9, 2018

What’s New?
 We had a good field trip on Monday.  We saw the play Pete the Cat at Governor’s State.  The children thought it was funny and liked the music.  Thanks for sending the report card envelopes back with your signature.  If you have not done that yet, please send it in next week.  Please remember timelines are due next Thursday.  If you get done with it early, please send it in so we can start presenting them to the class.  Next week the children can look forward to the firemen coming in for a talk on Wednesday. Our own Nurse Brown will be visiting our class on Friday for a lesson on hand washing.  Also on Friday, we are going to get together with Mrs. Bailey’s first grade class for Gobble Up a Good Book.  We will get together in the lunchroom during snack time and share a book with a friend.  Please have your child bring a favorite book or two from home that they’d like to read with a friend.  I will send a reminder next week. I sent home the Six Flags Read to Succeed form yesterday.  This is totally optional.  You have a long time to complete it if you’d like a free ticket to Six Flags.  If you complete it early, feel free to send it in.
We read A Cupcake Party this week. This was a fantasy story and the focus skill was story structure.  Next week we will not read a story from our Journeys book, so there will be no reading or spelling tests next week. Instead, we will learn about Veterans Day and the first Thanksgiving.  We will read, watch videos, and write about these two holidays. The children will bring a book home to practice from Guided Reading so please look for that Monday or Tuesday.
We took our test on Chapter 3 Addition Strategies.  As I was walking around, it seemed as though the children were doing well.  I will get those back to you next week.  Thanks for practicing with them at home.  We have now moved into how addition and subtraction are related.
We learned what a synonym is.  We did a Wixie activity with Mrs. Fifer using synonyms.  We wrote about the story structure of A Cupcake Party.  Our spelling skill this week was short u and blends at the end of a word.
We looked at a timeline of a 6 year old boy in our social studies books.  We also started discussing what a veteran is.
We learned about wild turkeys at the science center and wrote some facts that we learned.
                                               Have a great weekend!
