This week in reading, we read a story called, “Skip To My Lou.”  We are almost done reviewing all the consonants and sight words from kindergarten.


In math, we have been busy creating addition sentences. We modeled addition problems with partners and cubes.  We learned that the numbers being added are called the addends,  and the answer to an addition problem is called the sum.


In social studies, we began a unit about families. We talked about how are families are the same and different and all the things we learn from our families.



In science, we are learning about trees.  We read a story about the life cycle of a tree and completed a chart showing the steps from seed to tree.


We also started working with chromebooks this week. We practiced logging in and out of the computer. Next week, we will create a google doc in our drive!

Don’t forget next Thursday night is Open House! See you then! Mrs. Wolff 🙂

Welcome Back To School!!


We had a great first week of school!!  The first thing we did was discuss our first grade goals!



This week, we read a counting story called, “One Gorilla.” We reviewed the consonants b, c, d, f, g and h.  We also started to review sight words from Kindergarten.


In math, we’ve been counting and reviewing numbers. We also started creating and solving addition sentences.


In first grade, the students bring home homework twice a week in their “Homework Folder.” On Mondays, the students will be bringing home reading homework. Right now, that consists of a list of sight words and a weekly reading journal. (Later in the year, they will be bringing home spelling words to study.) On Wednesday’s, students will be bringing home math homework. Please return all homework by Friday. Don’t forget to check the students’ “everyday folders” for work that they have completed that day.  It’s going to be great year!
