First Grade ~  January 2017 Newsletter  


ELA:  In Fundations, we continue to review the letters, sounds, digraphs, bonus letters, the glued sounds: am, an, and all, the suffix -s and the –nk and –ng glued sounds.  We will begin learning about consonant blends and digraph blends.  Please continue to complete the assigned homework, as well as practice the trick words included in the unit packet.  An updated list of the trick words up to unit 7 was sent home which included ideas for how to practice these words with your child. 

Math:  We continue to practice our addition and subtraction facts and ask that you review these facts to 20 with your child. 

Social Studies:  This month we are wrapping up our unit on families. 

Science:  We will be working on our second unit in science.  The children will be learning about the properties of objects and how to sort and classify using these properties.  The attributes they are learning about are: size, shape, color, texture, and weight.  They also are learning about buoyancy. What will sink? What will float?
