Open House and Flash Cards

It was wonderful to see so many of you last night.  If you were not able to make it, I have put your copy of the presentation in your child's folder.  Stapled to that is your child's login information for Raz Kids Reading Program, First in Math, and Prodigy Math.  Please update your child's transportation information on the half sheet and return it.
I have also added the powerpoint to the tabs on the right for your reference.
If possible, please send a pack of addition flash cards (Facts up to sums of 20) and subtraction cards to school. The kids will keep these in their desks to practice facts when they have free chances. Inexpensive packs can usually be found at the dollar store, Wal Mart and often times the Target dollar bins.
If you are like me and naturally jump on Amazon, there is a link below for some that I found.  ** This is purely optional, but is helpful for the child. Thanks so much! Have a great weekend!
Subtraction Cards from 20 (some of these are a tad harder than the kids need to know, but that's ok)

Scholastic Book Order Forms

Scholastic Book Order Forms will come home on Wednesday.  Order forms are due back the next Wednesday, Sept 27th.  If you would like to order online, there is a much wider selection.  You can use the link below and our class code.  The books get mailed to school and then I send them home with your child.  Happy Reading :)

Week of Sep18th

Hello! I am trying out a different way to post on the website! 
Last week the students took their first spelling test and math test!  A note will be attached to the spelling test when it comes home on Wednesday explaining how the tests are graded for the first 9 weeks.  The math test was a success also!  All of the tests in first grade are read aloud to the students!  You will see the math test with the Wednesday papers as well.

Parent Orientation Night for all grade level is this Thursday 9/21. The PTO meeting begins at 6:00 and teacher information sessions begin after that. I will explain the online reading website RAZ Kids, talk about first grade expectations and answer any questions.  
Please send headphones for your child if you have not already. 
Please send a family picture if you would like and have not already.  They are all posted on a bulletin board in our classroom.
What are we learning this week?
Reading: We are going to work on making text to self and text to text connections.  We are working on building our reading stamina and improving our fluency through a weekly poem.
Word Work: Short e words
Writing: We are going to work on different spelling strategies to help spelling unknown words. We will also write our personal narratives in booklets to help include a beginning, middle, and end.
Math: We are going to work on addition story problems.  Students will learn a 4 part model to help them solve these problems!
Science: We are now rotating every other week between science and social studies.
Social Studies: We will continue to talk about communities, rules/laws and enforcement of rules.
Have a great week!  Check back Monday afternoon for a list of short e words and sight words.
