So much to be thankful for...

Hello all,

I apologize for missing a week of blogging last week. It is such a busy time of year and the days just slip on by. We are back to our reading series after a week of review last week. This is what we are learning this week:

Theme: Being Friends
Story of the Week: Kate's Game
Spelling Pattern: Long a (words with silent e at the end).
Math: Subtraction to 20
Writing: Continuing stories, venturing into Thanksgiving writing
Science: Gravity/Force & Motion
Social Studies: Completing Veterans' Day activities & moving into Thanksgiving (Pilgrims & Indians)

Please don't forget that next week will only be a 2 day week. School will be in session on Monday & Tuesday. There will not be school Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
*Please note that progress reports will be coming home on Wednesday!! If you have any questions, please let me know.

As you have noticed, the 1st grade curriculum is definitely picking up some speed...more weekly sight words to learn, harder spelling patterns. It is more important than ever to continue practicing skills nightly.

Thank you for all that you do & have a great week!
