Skills we will focus on this week:

Week of 10/7-10/11 

ELA - Retell stories including key ideas and details (character, setting, moral, etc.). Be able to ask and answer questions about key details in a story. We will be discussing the lesson or central message of stories. For this, please make sure you are having your child read every day for at least 20 minutes and ask them questions about the stories they read. Please also review and practice recognizing first grade sight words. We will also begin introducing written retelling to students. We will begin learning about the main idea of a story and supporting details. 

MATH - Understand the ones and tens place values in numbers. Please practice writing numbers 1-150 correctly. We will be working on addition and subtraction within 1-20. Make sure your student is working on addition and subtraction number sentences at home. We will begin practicing counting on from any given number (ex. 75, 76,....). Students will practice graphing and interpreting them. We will also be working on addition and subtraction word problems. 

WRITING - We will begin writing narratives. These include 5 sentences (topic sentences, 3 detail sentences, and a closing sentences). An important part of first grade is having eligible handwriting including correct capitalization, punctuation marks, and writing in the lines. Please practice neat handwriting at home.  

Thank You
