New Test Procedures and Report Cards on Thursday!

Posted by monica.gallagher | Uncategorized | Posted on March 28th, 2011

Testing and assessments have all been complete and we all are ready for our last units of study. Report cards will be sent home on Thursday. Please be sure to sign a copy and return to school on Friday. Students received their new hardback books today. Please look under the Reading section to see new test procedures.

Here is what First Grade will be studying this week:

READING- Unit 5.1- “Tippy To Chick, Go!”   As we begin our last reading unit, we will have another advance in our test-taking and homework procedures. Instead of giving the students a spelling worksheet on Thursday, students will now be given a blank writing paper and  asked to write 5 sentences with their choice of the spelling words. This means there will also be no study guide provided for the tests of this unit. I think students are ready for this next important step towards second grade.

SPELLING- lists for every story can be viewed on the SPELLING LISTS  tab on the S.E.E. homepage

WRITING- We began a new unit of study today:  POETRY!  Now, lots of people think young students can’t write poetry, but that is just not true. The students are absolutely excited and made a great first effort today. I can’t wait to see how they develop!

MATH-Chapter 5- “Number Patterns to 100” This week, we will work on ordinal numbers, 10 more, 10 less, 1 more, and 1 less. We will take the chapter test this Friday.

SCIENCE-We will reflect back on a previous unit of study as we plant seeds for the herbs Basil and Parsley.

Hope everyone has a great week–leave a comment!!

    Now it makes sense why Caroline told us this week that parsley is a plant. She was just informing us of what she was learning about parsley. It is more than just her family name. HaHa.

    It is one of my favorite herbs! I put it in almost everything!
    I love how they figure things out–making those connections!!
