Homework for the Week!

(Please remember how important it is for your child to do their homework on the assigned night. Please do not work ahead, thank you for not turning in assignments early.)

 

Monday: This is the first week of spelling words in first grade!

 

This week’s spelling words are listed below. Beginning this week each child will have a list of spelling words that reinforce what we are working on in phonics. They will have 12 words to study for the week. The spelling words will start out very simply and increase in difficulty, length, and complexity. These words will reinforce the phonics skills that are the basis for reading progression. As always, please be sure to help your child study just a little each night so they can have the most success possible.

 

Each week your child should use the primary lined paper you purchased earlier in the year to complete spelling homework assignments. This week we practiced heading and numbering your child’s spelling homework. They can use this paper for tonight’s homework. Please refer to the example attached when heading your paper for future spelling homework.

 

Please have your child write their spelling words 2 times each. After they have written their words, please have them pick one of the words to write a sentence about Thanksgiving. Please check their sentence for beginning with an upper case letter, correct letter formation, finger spacing between words, and correct end punctuation.

 

Although all spelling words should be spelled correctly please allow your child to use their best guess and go spelling (phonetic spelling) when writing their sentence.

Tuesday: Math Homework and Remembering 3.4, attached.

 

Class pictures and Individual Student Retakes Tomorrow!

 

Wednesday: Family Game Night! Play a board games, card games, guessing game, etc. are all great choices! This is also a good time to practice a skill that needs some extra practice: addition or subtraction flash cards, Xtra math, reading to someone, keep a journal, write about your day…

 

Thursday: Please complete the attached Thanksgiving family tradition page. At the top please write your last name in large print. Write 1 or more sentences explaining a Thanksgiving tradition your family celebrates. In the picture spot illustrate and color a picture of your family celebrating that tradition. Hand in tomorrow and we will be sharing these next week!

 

Important Notes for the Week!

 

Class Picture/Retakes: Tuesday, November 13th is Class Picture Day and individual student retakes. Please remember to come in full uniform.

 

Stories of the Week:

          Too Big for One

          The Pigs, the Wolf, and the Mud

          Homes Around the World

 

Thanksgiving Food Drive: Keep working on bringing those food bags in! Your donations are truly appreciated. Filled bags may be brought to the classroom where we will be making a tally/bar graph totaling all donated items. 

 

Cougar Club: Are you working on your November Cougar Club? Remember to write down all the books you read!

 

Coats: As the weather begins to get colder and wetter, please be sure your child brings a coat to school each day. Even if it is raining a little we still try to get outside for some exercise and fresh air, so a coat comes in handy!

 

IXL and Xtra-Math:  These programs are not always going to be assigned as homework, but children are welcome to log-on any day for some extra practice. Right now in math we are focusing on addition and subtraction, place-value, and counting. Here are some First Grade IXL skills that would be great to practice:


A.1 through A.5            

B.1 through B.4            

C.1 through C.10

D.1 through D.3           

E.1-E.3

F.1 through F.4

G.1-G.10

H.1

I.1


 

October Prayer: The prayer to be memorized this month is Grace Before Meals.

 

Shoe Liturgy: Friday December 1st is the Shoe Liturgy. We will be sitting as a class, so please feel free to join us in the church a little before 2:00, it is an amazing experience! If your child is participating, it is helpful to have their shoes, etc. in a gift bag, or shopping bag with handles, this makes it much easier for small hands to carry them over to the church and get them to Father at the altar. The children may bring their shoes with them to school the morning of the 1st. If you have any questions about how the Shoe Liturgy works, please ask! If you are not able to purchase a pair of shoes please send me an email and I will make sure your child has a pair to carry to the altar.

 

Christmas Pageant: I know that some of you are already wondering about our wonderful Christmas Pageant. Mrs. Middleton will be sending out information in the coming weeks. Here are a few notes from her at this time:

 

Afternoon Performance: Wednesday, December 13th at 1:30 p.m.

·        Send Pageant Performance Clothes with your child to school on Wed. morning.

·        1st Grade Student will wear “Sunday best” clothes.

Evening Performance: Thursday, December 14th at 7:00 p.m.

·        Students should be wearing their full pageant clothes when they arrive at school Thursday evening.

·        Students report to their homeroom classrooms at 6:30 p.m.

·        Students will return to their classrooms after the pageant. Please plan to pick them up there.
